    The Iranian ship Kharg is a modified Ol-class replenishment oiler of the Islamic Republic of Iran Navy, named after Kharg Island. Built at Swan Hunter in the United Kingdom and launched in 1977, she was delivered to Iran in 1984.

    Kharg entered the Suez Canal on 22 February 2011, with the frigate Alvand, on a deployment reported to be a training mission to Latakia, Syria.

    The Kharg entered the Suez Canal again, with one other warship on 18 February 2012, after briefly docking at Jeddah, Saudi Arabia.
