Iranian media reports that the Islamic Republic of Iran Navy (IRIN) will commission a new hovercraft into service later this month.

The locally-built vessel will be commissioned into the fleet shortly after the start of the Iranian New Year on March 21.

The hovercraft’s missions will also include fast transport of troops.
