Fighter Jets Join Caspian Naval Drill

The Iranian Air Force dispatched a number of warplanes to the Caspian Sea for participation in a massive naval exercise, a Navy commander said. "A number of F-4 Phantom fighter jets have taken part in the Navy's drill in the Caspian Sea," Rear Admiral Mahmoud Mousavi also told Tasnim News Agency on Monday. Code-named "Sustainable Security and Power 96", the naval exercise involves a wide range of military vessels, commando units, divers, rescue and relief teams, electronic warfare units and radar stations. The commander noted that Damavand destroyers and Peykan-class military vessels are also taking part in the drill. Mousavi pointed to deployment of tactics to ensure sustainable security in the Caspian Sea, declaration of Iran's readiness for cooperation with other Caspian states, sending the message of peace and friendship, as well as testing and evaluating the new weapons and military systems mounted on naval vessels as the goals of the five-day maneuver that began on Sunday.
