Little is known in the West of the lead ship in the Jamaran-class of guided missile frigates serving the Iranian Navy (formally the Islamic Republic of Iran Navy). The frigate was laid down sometime in 2006 and officially launched under state-media coverage on February 19th, 2010. She makes her home port strategically out of Bandar-Abbas at the mouth of the Persian Gulf. Recently, it was announced on Iranian television that the Iranian Navy would be conducting voyages in Atlantic waters - as close to the United States as Iranian vessels have ever been in recent times.

The Jamaran is said to be completed with the latest in available tracking, targeting and communications equipment as well as onboard provisions for electronic warfare. The arrival of the Jamaran is of note for it represents the first indigenously designed and produced Iranian destroyer/frigate vessel and is viewed within Iran as one of the country's greatest technological achievements. Its exact capabilities in-the-field remain unproven, however, and most of the technology is more than likely based on Russian or Chinese design. At any rate, the arrival of the IRIN Jamaran is a benefit to the presence of the Iranian Navy in the Middle East - advancing the force's capabilities to an extent.

A few specifications have been made public to date (or expertly estimated) and include a top operating speed of 30 knots in ideal conditions, a crew complement numbering between 120 and 140 officer and enlisted personnel and a hull length of some 308 feet. Displacement is said to range in the area of 1,400 tons. The Jamaran does sport a helipad which endorses the idea that the vessel will support incoming and outgoing rotary-wing aircraft - suspected to be a navalized American Bell 212 series helicopter optimized for the anti-ship role.

Armament-wise, the Jamaran is reportedly up-to-date with the lastest in navalized cannon firepower, guided surface-to-air and surface-to-surface missiles as well as torpedoes. She sports a 76mm dual-purpose deck gun as well as 40mm Fath and 20mm Oerlikon anti-aircraft cannons for close-in work. There are launchers for C-802 series surface-to-surface missiles to contend with enemy vessels as Fajr surface-to-air missile launchers to counter aerial threats. To round out the armament suite are 2 x 324mm triple-mounted torpedo launch tubes.

While categorized in the Iranian Navy as a "destroyer", the Jamaran is viewed technically in the West as a "frigate" type vessel based on her displacement.
