    Default Iranian AirDefense Forces Exercise Targeting UAVs in Air Defense Drills Wargames

    TEHRAN (FNA)- Iran's air defense units exercised their capability of targetting Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs) during massive air defense drills in the Southern province of Bushehr.

    Iranian forces shot down a hypothetical enemy's drone on the final day of Sarallah military drills.

    Iran's Air Defense Unit started massive air defense drills, codenamed Sarallah, in the country's Southern regions on Monday to test and assess the latest versions and productions of home-made radar and missile defense systems.

    The air defense units of Iran's Army deployed various systems on Thursday to counter low-altitude aerial threats and successfully identified and destroyed the mock enemy's UAVs and radar-evading aircraft at an altitude of around 10,000 feet (about 3 kilometers).

    Commander of Khatom ol-Anbia Air Defense Base Brigadier General Farzad Esmayeeli announced on Wednesday that Iranian Army and Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) reviewed their latest air defense tactics during the drills.

    On the first day of the exercises, the air defense units of the Iranian Armed Forces under the command of Khatam ol-Anbia base managed to detect and identify invading aircraft and started confrontation with enemy warplanes using air defense systems and Scramble and CAP air defense planes.

    During the second day of the drills, Iran's air defense force assessed the preparedness and performance of its air defense artillery and mid-range missile systems against low-altitude aerial threats.

    The drills were staged by the air defense units of the Iranian Army and the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC).

    Iran's air defense units assessed the performance and capabilities of different types of mobile and fixed radar systems on the third day of Sarallah military drills in Southern Iran.

    During the current phase of the air defense wargames, different fixed and mobile radar systems which have been manufactured and upgraded by Iranian experts and are under the control of Iran's integrated air defense network were used.

    Kasta and NEBO radars as well as the Iran-made Kashef (Discoverer) and Matla ol-Fajr radars were used to detect and identify aerial threats.

    Iran's home-made air defense radar systems can easily detect cruise missiles and drones.
