Iran's Air Force successfully conducted electronic warfare maneuvers as part of large-scale three-day military drills in the central province of Isfahan.

The e-warfare exercises were held on Tuesday, the second day of ongoing drills codenamed "Devotees of the Velayat Sanctuary 6."

Lieutenant General Masoud Rouzkhosh, spokesman of the exercises, said the Air Force used advanced communications systems and secure wireless or wire-connected networks, flight apparatus systems and tactical systems during the drills, Press TV reported.

"The application of deceptive jamming methods against mock enemy radars was among the electronic warfare tactics employed by Falcon 50 aircraft on the second day," he said.

Later through the day, interceptor F-14 aircraft conducted aerial surveillance and other operations, while F-14 and MiG-29 fighters engaged in combat.

The drills also deployed domestically-built Saeqeh, F-4, F-5 and Sukhoi Su-24 jets, transport aircraft and unmanned aerial vehicles, as well as a wide range of projectiles, including smart bombs and laser-guided missiles.

Rouzkhosh said among the war game's points of strength were the amplification of the force's firepower and enhancement of its precision targeting capabilities.

Iran says its military might poses no threat to other countries, stressing that its defense doctrine is based on deterrence.
