Joshan (Persian: جوشن‎) has been the name of a number of Iranian naval vessels.

The latest Joshan is P225, an Iranian fast attack/patrol missile boat claimed by the Iranian government as one of the best PT boats in the world. It was named for a vessel that was sunk by missiles fired from the Simpson (FFG-56) during Operation Praying Mantis in the Persian Gulf on April 18, 1988.

The new Joshan''s launch was timed to coincide with Sacred Defense Week (Sept. 22-28) and took place at Noshahr’s Imam Khomeini Marine Sciences University.

P225 has a claimed speed of over 45 knots (83 km/h; 52 mph) and according to Iran''s Navy commander Admiral Kouchaki

...enjoys the world''s latest technology, specially with regard to its military, electrical and electronic systems, frame and chassis, and it has the capabilities required for launching powerful missiles.
