The war games underway in the Persian Gulf and the Strait of Hormuz involve naval and aerospace forces of the IRGC.

The military exercises span Hormozgan province, the west of the Strait of Hormuz and the Persian Gulf all the way into the heart of the country. The war games feature land, sea, air and space drills.

In the final phase of the maneuvres, missile, vessel and drone units of the IRGC’s Naval Force as well as the missile, drone and radar units of the IRGC’s Aerospace Division carry out operations and drills.

The exercises feature combat operations against the position of the mock enemy and mine-laying drills as well as operation to cut off the communications lines of the mock enemy. Choppers will also conduct rocket operations and fire coast-to-sea missiles.

During the military exercises, the war game region is being monitored for the first time using images sent by the Iranian Noor satellite.
