The third and final day of the Iranian Army’s air defense drills has drawn to a close, with the successful downing of the mock enemy’s unmanned stealth aircraft by the army’s artillery units.


Deputy Commander of the Iranian Army’s Khatam al-Anbiya Air Defense Base Brigadier General Shahrokh Shahram announced Tuesday that the artillery units of Iran’s air defense in the northwestern region of the country engaged the mock enemy’s stealth, pilotless aircraft, successfully firing down all the hostiles after detecting them electronically.

Brig. Gen. Shahram reiterated that the base’s radar systems and physical observation networks were able to immediately detect the mock enemy’s aerial intrusion, and authorized the ground forces’ artillery units to engage and destroy the targets.


The military exercise, which began Sunday, came in response to the enemy’s psychological warfare and is meant to neutralize the regional media’s propaganda campaign against Iran, the army has said.

In recent years, Iran has made great achievements in the defense sector and gained self-sufficiency in essential military hardware and defense systems.

Last week, the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) test-fired domestically-produced missiles during a three-day military drill codenamed the Great Prophet 7.

The tested missiles included Shahab (Meteor) 1, 2, 3, Khalij Fars (Persian Gulf), Tondar (Lightning), Fateh (Victor) and Zelzal (Quake) as well as Qiam (Uprising).

Iran has repeatedly stated that its military might poses no threat to other countries, reiterating that its defense doctrine is based on deterrence.
