The radar network of Iran’s air defense units have successfully detected and tracked a hypothetical enemy’s manned stealth aircraft and unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) during the third phase of the Iranian Army’s ongoing defense exercises.
On Wednesday, the radar network stationed at the operations area transmitted the information about the altitude, range and speed of the mock enemy’s manned stealth aircraft and unmanned aerial vehicles to the country’s integrated network of air defense.
In another operation, radars at the army’s Khatam al-Anbia Air Defense Base successfully guided aircraft to locate and target the hypothetical enemy’s aircraft.
Iran’s Khatam al-Anbia Air Defense Base started the Tharallah exercises on Monday within an area of 190,000 square kilometers in southern Iran, with the key objective of boosting the country’s air defense.
Various stationary and mobile radars produced and upgraded by Iranian experts were put to test and were assessed during the third phase of the four-day exercise on Wednesday.
Iran maintains that the drills staged by the Iran’s Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) or the Army are defensive in nature and meant to convey a message of peace and friendship to regional countries.
