TEHRAN (Tasnim) – Commander of the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps Major General Hossein Salami said the missiles and drones showcased in The Great Prophet 15 drills indicate the Iranian nation's strong resolve to defend their vital interests.
"The message of these drills is our power and strong determination to defend the Establishment and our values against the enemies of Islam and Iran," General Salami added.
Major General Salami described the successful test of new technologies in missile and drone guidance and control systems and the very precise command and control capabilities of the joint strategic operation as prominent feature of the Payambar-e Azam 15 (The Great Prophet 15) military exercise.
He said the IRGC forces are now capable of accurately hitting all targets using missile and drone technology.
The Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) started massive military drills in central Iran, in which it tests its latest ballistic missiles and combat drones.
The first round of the drills, codenamed the Great Prophet 15, was held with mass launches of ballistic ground-to-ground missiles and operations by combat bomber drones.
Missiles of Zulfaqar, Zelzal, and Dezful classes were fired at the targets during the Friday drills.
The IRGC military exercises started shortly after the Iranian Navy finished its naval drills in the country's strategic southern waters.
The massive naval drills were held in the Sea of Oman and the Persian Gulf in order to elevate the preparedness and military prowess of Iran’s Armed Forces.
