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.

Design[edit]

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.
