New Photo Of Shahid Soleimani Class Catamaran

Flag Iran Imagery is slowly emerging confirming the construction of new missile corvettes for Iran's IRGC (Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps). A candid photograph has been shared on Telegram of one being fitted out at Qeshm Island. It is the same one observed at the Madkandaloo Shipbuilding Cooperative Co yard. The site is one of three where the new craft are being built.

The image confirms that the main armament will consist of four C-802 Noor family anti-ship missiles. These are housed in regular box launchers which are now visible just behind the bridge, firing forwards and outwards.
