Shahid Soleimani Class Corvettes

Operators:

On September 5, 2022, the Iranian Revolutionary Guards Navy added the first (FS313-01) Shahid Soleimani corvette to its inventory, marking the inception of the Shahid Soleimani (Martyr Soleimani) class missile corvettes. A total of 4 catamaran-style corvettes will be produced.

(FS313-01) Shahid Soleimani

The catamaran design enhances the ship’s maneuverability and stability in rough seas. Aluminum is the primary material used in the construction of these corvettes. The Shahid Soleimani class corvettes are equipped with naval guns and cruise missiles for surface warfare, air defense missiles for air combat, and, additionally, they feature remotely operated 3-barreled 20mm Gatling guns for asymmetric warfare threats.

While the initial FS313-01 Shahid Soleimani corvette featured manually operated 12.7mm machine guns, recent images have shown that they have been replaced with 3-barreled 20mm Gatling guns. These corvettes have a helipad for a 5-ton class helicopter but lack a hangar.

(FS313-02) Hassan Bagheri

The Shahid Soleimani class ships represent the heaviest combat vessels in the Iranian Revolutionary Guards Navy’s fleet. The class is named after former Revolutionary Guards commanders.
