EghtesadOnline: The Islamic Revolution Guards Corps’ Aerospace Force blasted targets in the northern parts of Indian Ocean with long-range ballistic missiles in a military exercise in Iranian deserts.
Various classes of long-range ballistic missiles were launched in the final stage of the wargame on Saturday to detonate the hypothetical enemy’s warships from a distance of 1,800 kilometers, Tasnim News Agency reported.
In the final stage of large-scale exercise in the central desert of Iran, IRGC’s ballistic missiles hit locations in the northern areas of the Indian Ocean.
The military exercise, codenamed Payambar-e Azam 15 (The Great Prophet 15), is an annual drill that includes a combination of missile and drone operations.
On Friday, the IRGC units attending the wargame practiced the launch of a barrage of surface-to-surface ballistic missiles and offensive bomber drone operations.
Iran’s top military commander described the launch of ballistic missiles to hit targets at a distance of over 1,800 km as “a meaningful choice”, warning the enemies that any threat to Iran’s national interests would draw a harsh response.
