Iran ends 2nd day of air maneuvers
The Iranian military has wrapped up the second day of its five-day drills dubbed 'Modafean Aseman Velayat 3 (Defenders of Velayat Skies).'
Iran's defense capabilities where the radar system cannot be used were demonstrated on the second day of air maneuvers, Press TV reported.
The air maneuvers are being held near Iran's "nuclear and others vital landmarks." The long-range anti-air missiles are being tested in the maneuvers.
A new kind of walkie talkie and an upgraded surface-to-air shoulder-launched missile system were successfully tested.
The main purpose of holding the military maneuvers is enhancing response capabilities in countering threats against the strategic centers.
State-of-the-art equipment used for communication and exchange of intelligence along with modern electro-optical systems were successfully tested and utilized on the second day of military maneuvers.
The spokesman for the military drills, Brigadier Hamid Arzhangi, told Press TV that the exercises on Wednesday mainly focused on assessing monitoring instruments installed across the country.
"Thousands of monitors have been positioned along the seven thousand kilometers of Iranian borders, as well as the central areas of the country," Arzhangi added.
During the drills, the aerial monitoring network passed on intelligence to control and command headquarters using highly advanced telecommunication instruments in the shortest possible time, he added.
The command headquarters then processed the incoming intelligence and took appropriate measures as part of the exercise, the official said.
Iranian military officials say the drills convey a message of peace and friendship to neighboring countries and a strong warning against enemies.
