The Iranian Navy plans to manufacture a home-made trimaran destroyer named Safineh to be used in asymmetric coastal warfare and rapid reaction operations.
The blueprint of the heavy vessel which is 100 meters long and enjoys the trimaran technology was unveiled on Saturday, told FNA.
Also, low hydrodynamic resistance in high speed and a floating propulsion system appropriate to the needed corresponding dimensions and speed are among other features of Safineh.
The warship also has a large deck, twice as big as a single-hull vessel of the same tonnage, and it can carry all types of helicopters operating in the Iranian Navy, including RH.
The trimaran vessel is still in the research phase in the Iranian Navy.
