High-Altitude Missile Test-Fired in Wargame

Iran’s Air Defense Force on Wednesday carried out the first operational test of Sayyad-3 missiles paired with Talash homegrown missile system, during a large-scale wargame in southern parts of the country. It was the first time that Sayyad-3 missiles were launched by Talash system to hit high-altitude targets, Tasnim News Agency reported.
Capable of intercepting targets within a range of 150 kilometers and at high altitudes, Sayyad-3 has been paired with Talash missile system, which also employs Sayyad-2 missiles against targets at medium altitudes. The air defense system is also equipped with domestically-manufactured fire control radar, dubbed Ofoq.
Air Defense Force began the large-scale military exercise, codenamed Defenders of Velayat Skies 7, in the country’s southern regions on Monday. Involving more than 17,000 military forces, the three-day wargame covered an area of 496,000 square kilometers, including the provinces of Hormozgan, Bushehr and Khuzestan.
A broad range of equipment, including tactical radars, mobile watch posts and ground-based and air-based surveillance systems were used in the wargame.
