Iran has completed the second phase of an air defense maneuver in the southeastern parts of the country, PRESSTV reported.
“Considering the sensitivity of the southeastern air defense zone and its adjacency to the Persian Gulf littoral states, the one-day Mesbaholhoda drill was planned for this air defense zone and its second phase has been carried out,” said Deputy Commander of Iran’s Khatam al-Anbiya Air Defense Base Brigadier General Alireza Sabahifard on Saturday.
In the course of the maneuver, the electronic, artillery and missile radar systems and watchtowers were tested in combat scenarios and all the systems made satisfactory tactical moves against their targets, Sabahifard said.
The commander noted that a wide range of scenarios had been devised for these drills according to the existing threats in order to assess the readiness of the personnel and systems under real circumstances and enhance the operational and combat capabilities of Iran’s air defense units.
In recent years, Iran has made great achievements in its defense sector and attained self-sufficiency in producing essential military equipment and systems.
On June 2, Iran’s Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) officially put into service a domestically developed long-range radar system, named Ghadir, capable of detecting stealth aircraft.
The state-of-the-art radar system uses three-dimensional (3-D) technology to detect airborne targets, including radar-evading aircraft, cruise and ballistic missiles, and satellites in low orbits.
The Islamic Republic has frequently announced that its military might poses no threat to other countries, stating that its defense doctrine is based on deterrence.
