Iran launched its second Mowdge class "destroyer" (Frigate class according to western standards), dubbed as "Jamaran 2", on Sunday after a reported development that took six years.

The new Frigate was launched in the Caspian Sea during an official ceremony attended by Iran President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, Chief of Staff of the Iranian Armed Forces Major General Hassan Firouzabadi, Iranian Defense Minister Brigadier General Ahmad Vahidi, and Iranian Navy Commander Rear Admiral Habibollah Sayyari.

In a statement, the Iranian Defense Ministry said that "the destroyer which has been designed and developed by Iranian experts uses the state-of-the-art navigation systems and domestically-made sophisticated defensive equipments."
