The Iranian Army and Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) wrapped up joint aerial wargames codenamed ‘Modafe’ one Aseman-e Velayat 99′ (Guardians of Velayat’s Sky-99) on Thursday.
The two-day joint aerial drills codenamed ‘Modafe’ one Aseman-e Velayat 99′ (Guardians of Velayat’s Sky-99) wrapped up successfully on Thursday after displaying the state-of-the-art equipment and modern capacities of the Iranian Armed Forces in a vast expanse spreading in almost half of the country’s area, Lieutenant Commander of Khatam al-Anbia Air Defense Base Brigadier General Qader Rahimzadeh announced on Thursday.
The wargame, which was launched in a vast area on Wednesday succeeded to achieve all its predesigned objectives, Rahimzadeh said.
Using home-made defense equipment and systems was of great importance during the military maneuver, he said, adding, “All the equipment and systems used in this wargame (including reconnaissance, missile, radar, electronic warfare, etc.) have been produced by the skilled experts and elites of Armed Forces and defense industry of the country.”
“The wargame was the first of its kind that was launched with completely Iran-made defense systems,” the commander added.

“Since long-range threats have been turned into one of the main threats to the airspace, tackling these threats has been put on top of the agenda. The domestically made Bavar-373 defense missile system hit its long-range targets in a real wargame.”
