Air Defense Drills Planned

Iran’s air defense force plans to stage five large-scale war games in the coming months, in which new missile and radar systems are to be tested, a top commander announced.  Commander of Khatam al-Anbia Air Defense Base Lieutenant General Farzad Esmaeili told Tasnim News Agency on Sunday the military exercises are going to be held from mid-summer until the end of the current Iranian year in March 2017.  New radar and missile systems will be used in the exercises. According to the commander, tactics in the games will include cooperation with the Armed Forces and the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps.  The air defense base holds regular military exercise, code-named Defenders of Velayat Skies. Iran’s integrated air defense network protects over 3,000 sensitive sites across the country.
Back in April, the deputy commander of the air defense base, Lieutenant General Ali Reza Sabahifard, said there has been a considerable increase in the number of air defense missile sites across the country in the past five years.
