The Iranian Navy will be inducting three destroyers to its northern and southern armadas in the next four months.

“The vessels namely Sahand, Damavand and Dena would be joining the Navy’s fleets in the same order,” Rear Admiral Hossein Khanzadi was quoted as saying in an IRNA report Sunday.

Sahand and Dena will be joining the southern waters’ fleet and Damavand will be joining the Northern fleet, Khanzadi said.

Sahand, which can carry anti-mine helicopters, would join the Southern Fleet this week on the occasion of the Navy Day. “Today, Sahand has been nominated for a big mission,” he added.

Damavand is to hit the water following an overhaul necessitated by an accident last year. The revamped destroyer now enjoys improved propulsion, stability, and maneuvering capability. Dena was to enter service last and was currently being armed and equipped, Khanzadi said.
