Precision-strike combat drones as well as sophisticated ballistic and cruise missiles have played a major role in the large-scale military exercises that Iran’s Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) is holding in an area stretching along the southern shores of the country.
On Tuesday and the second day of the Great Prophet 17 joint drills, the IRGC aerospace forces flew unmanned aerial vehicles, and the aircraft struck a series of fixed and mobile targets on the ground and in the sea using bombs with pinpoint accuracy.
Attack helicopters provided close air support (CAS) and fired accurately at the designated targets.
Troops practiced coastal defense exercises and anti-heliborne tactics as well.
Additionally, IRGC forces launched volleys of various surface-to-surface, anti-ship missiles, and coast-to-sea ballistic missiles against vessels, facilities, and bases of the hypothetical enemy and destroyed them as planned.
IRGC naval units also utilized domestically-developed offshore and onshore air defense systems against hostile drones.
