    The Iranian missile boat Paykan (Persian: پيکان‎) is an Iranian-made Sina class missile boat. The Sina class is nearly identical to the Kaman class and the Paykan and the Joshan are both often referred to the Kaman class (French FACM Class La Combattante IIa type).

    It is Iran''s first self-made missile boat and it is equipped with 4 or 2 C802 SSM anti-ship missiles, 1 Fajr-27 76 mm dual purpose gun and 1 40 mm anti aircraft gun.
