Air Force Fighters Practice Carpet-Bombing

The strategic Sukhoi Su-24 fighter bombers, along with Phantom combat planes of the Islamic Republic of Iran Air Force, destroyed mock targets during a major air drill on Tuesday night. The two-day wargame started on Tuesday morning in the central province of Isfahan with the participation of all air bases of the IRIAF. In the final stage of the first day of the aerial exercises, Sukhoi Su-24 and Phantom fighters conducted carpet-bombing, Tasnim News Agency reported.  Carpet-bombing, also known as saturation bombing, is an intensive aerial bombing in a progressive manner, inflicting damage on every part of a selected area of land. The phrase evokes the image of explosions completely covering a large area, in the same way that a carpet covers a floor. Dozens of bomber airplanes, fighter jets, military transport aircraft, communication and reconnaissance planes, tanker aircraft and unmanned aerial vehicles took part in the maneuvers.
