TEHRAN (Tasnim) – A senior commander said the assault and combat drones in possession of the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) are capable of targeting any place and destroying any target.
Speaking to reporters on the sidelines of Payambar-e Azam 17 (The Great Prophet) war game in southern Iran on Wednesday, IRGC Ground Force Commander Brigadier General Mohammad Pakpour highlighted the major advances in the military drones used by his forces.
The IRGC’s tactical doctrine has changed and been updated proportional to the new threats, he noted.
Hailing the production of homegrown drones with advanced technologies, the commander said, “Our assault and combat drones can target any spot deemed necessary, in a way that hitting and detonating any target has become possible with such a tool and after a process in which such aircraft have developed and been equipped.”
He also noted that the IRGC’s technologies used for electronic warfare have improved quantitatively and qualitatively.
The ongoing war game covers the coastlines of the southern provinces of Hormozgan, Bushehr and Khuzestan.
In comments at a press conference on Monday morning, the IRGC deputy commander for operations, Brigadier General Abbas Nilforooshan, said the war game is aimed at boosting the preparedness of the IRGC combat units and has been designed with the simulation of one of the most sophisticated offense tactics used in the hybrid warfare and the complexity of the hard and soft wars.
