Iran has mounted Nour (Light), Qader (Mighty) and long-range Qadr (Magnitude) missile systems on its newly overhauled and modernized destroyer named Bayandor, Navy Commander Rear Admiral Habibollah Sayyari announced on Tuesday.
Sayyari made the remarks in a ceremony to launch the newly overhauled destroyer in Iran's territorial waters in the Southern port of Bandar Abbas.
Anti-ship Nour and Qader cruise missile systems are ultra-advanced and self-relying systems which have remarkably improved in radar, satellite, precision, range and navigation terms compared to their predecessors.
Sayyari also elaborated on other optimization measures adopted to overhaul and modernize the destroyer, and said "mount of 76-mm and 46-mm [sic] artilleries and some other special systems are among the other measures taken to renovate and modernize the destroyer".
Sayyari also said the destroyer will possibly be sent to missions in the Pacific, Southern Indian or Atlantic Oceans in the next few days or months.
