Tehran: Iran says it has launched a 50-year-old destroyer on the Persian Gulf after overhauling it and rearming with modern missiles.

Since 1992, Iran has been pursuing a self-sufficiency military program, reportedly producing its own jet fighters, tanks, missiles and light submarines as well as torpedoes.

Tuesday`s report by state TV quotes Rear Admiral Abbas Zamini as saying that experts had equipped the destroyer Bayandor during its 20-month overhaul with anti-ship missiles capable of firing 160 kilometres.

Zamini says the destroyer joined Iran`s Navy in 1964 and is named after a World War II war hero.
