for what ? their coastal guard, to fight smuggler and pirates.

How much you think a Mowj vessel cost?
The Type 21 which is what Alvand class was based on (which is what Mowj class is based on) —cost $17M back in 1970 or roughly $135M adjusted for inflation today.
I would think Iran could make a Mowj for somewhere between $75-$100M which spread cost over 6 years of building is $12-15M/year or so. Very manageable.
I think the cheapest frigates in the world cost ~$250M, so I saying Iran can generate a 50%+ cost reduction due to cheaper labor and cost of raw materials coupled with [mostly] in house tech.
The only clients that come to mind would be Venezuela or Iraq maybe Sudan/Libya. Syria and Cuba are broke. Pakistan buys pretty much only Chinese or US products.
I don’t know many “weak” countries out there willing to piss off US and Europe by purchasing major Iranian arms.
