Iran is planning to start the construction of a destroyer with a displacement of almost 6,000 tonnes already in 2020, the head of the Iranian Defence Ministry's Marine Industries Organisation said on Friday in an interview with the state-run Mehr news agency. "In the defence ministry we are working on the construction of a 6,000-ton destroyer in the long-run," Rear Admiral Amir Rastegari said, as quoted by the agency, adding that executive preparations for the project will commence this year.
