TEHRAN (Tasnim) – The naval forces of Iran and Russia practiced shooting at aerial targets at a nocturnal operation during a joint exercise in the Indian Ocean.
The spokesman for the joint exercise told reporters that conducting night strikes against the aerial targets is one of the main tactics in a naval drill that the Iranian and Russian forces successfully practiced on Tuesday night.
Participants in the joint drill, including units from the Iranian Navy, IRGC Navy and Russian Navy, have practiced attacks on various drones and small aircraft in close coordination, Gholamreza Tahani said.
