On Wednesday, the third and final day of Modafean-e-Aseman-e-Velayat 7 (The Defenders of Velayat Skies 7) wargames featuring Iran’s Army and the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) drill took place.
Military commanders of all forces were present in the city of Bushehr as the S-200 was successfully fired at its designated target on the back of relevant detection and tracking activity.
The same day Iranian forces demonstrated the deployment of missile defense systems against mock hostile aircraft as per schedule.
The spokesman for Iran’s military wargames, Second Head of Brigade Abbas Farajpour said that despite prior warning, which had been issued to foreign and domestic aircraft to avoid the drills’ general area, aircraft belonging to extra-regional forces had to be warned away again on 12 occasions during the drills.
