TEHRAN (ISNA)-Maritime Industry of Iran’s Defense Ministry handed mass-produced surface-to-sea missile systems to Iran’s navy.

Iran's Defense Minister Brigadier General Ahmad Vahidi said the country’s defense forces are ready to confront any threat.

Calling the power of Iran’s naval forces "dynamic" Vahidi said, “Iran's navy can carry out coastal defense missions with higher power by receiving mass-produced surface-to- sea missiles.”

“Increasing the local forces’ flexibility, security impact and identification of sea targets and their destruction simultaneously as soon as the time of identification are all amongst the specifications of the missile systems,” Vahidi noted.
