Iran yesterday began a tri-services military drill where its latest SAM, the Toufan will be fired along with the other weapons.
“The high-precision Toufan missile with a range of 4 km can both be used as a land-based missile and be fired from helicopters during the wargames,” Iranian Ground Force Commander Lieutenant General Ahmad Reza Pourdastan said.
Navy Commander Rear Admiral Habibollah Sayyari announced that various types of warships, destroyers, submarines, missiles, aircraft and helicopters would be used in the drills in a show of Iran's naval might and power.
“The Islamic Republic of Iran’s might will be displayed in joint wargames, named Mohammad Rasoulallah , by the Army’s Ground, Naval and Air Forces and with the support of Khatam al-Anbia Air Defense Base,” Sayyari announced on Tuesday.
He added that Shaher sniper rifle, the Moharram six-barrel cannon and mine-shedding systems are among the other weapons and equipment to be used in the wargames.
Iran deploys its new national missile defense system dubbed “real Iron Dome”, making its airspace the safest in the Middle East. “Today Iran's Air Defense System has provided our country with an Iron Dome in its real sense and Iran's airspace is the safest in the region," said Mohammad Hassan Aboutorabifard, vice speaker of Irans parliament was quoted as saying by Fars news agency
