The Iranian missile boat Paykan (Persian: پيکان‎‎) is an Iranian-made Kaman/Sina class missile boat. The Sina class is nearly identical to the Kaman class and Paykan and Joshan are both often referred to as members of the Kaman class.


Paykan was Iran's first self-made missile boat and is equipped with 2 or 4 C802 SSM anti-ship missiles, 1 Fajr-27 76 mm dual-purpose gun and 1 40 mm anti-aircraft gun.

Paykan was built in memory of the original Paykan, that sank three Iraqi Navy Osa II boats in 1980 during Operation Morvarid,[1] it also has the same pennant number as the original one.
