TEHRAN (Tasnim) – The Iranian Air Force’s F-4 Phantom jets dropped homegrown ‘Qassed’ guided bombs to hit their intended targets during a war game in central Iran.
The main stage of an aerial war game that the Islamic Republic of Iran’s Air Force (IRIAF) has launched in the country’s central province of Isfahan entered the second day on Tuesday.
During the operational stage of the drill this morning, the F-4 Phantom fighter jets fired Maverick tactical air-to-ground missiles and the Iranian Qassed smart bombs.

Different types of bombers, large military transport aircraft, interceptor and reconnaissance planes, and patrol aircraft have taken part in the drill.
