The Iranian Navy has officially launched the country’s most advanced indigenous missile boat, the Sina, which has set sail in the Caspian Sea.

Designed and built by experts of Iran’s Defence Ministry in cooperation with the Iranian Army the warship has over 100 radar, artillery, electronic and telecommunication systems, according to the Tehran Times.

During the launch, navy officials announced that the new war ship carries ‘Iran’s message of peace and friendship for regional countries’.

At the same time Iran announced that it will produce an advanced version of its Sejil missile, which was successfully test-fired in the third and last stage of a recent advanced military drill.

The Sejil is a two-stage missile powered by solid fuel, which was tested by the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) for the first time recently.
