TEHRAN (Press Shia) – In a massive aerial drill in central Iran, the Iranian Air Force’s F-4 Phantom jets dropped homegrown ‘Qassed’ guided bombs to hit their intended targets.
The aerial war game that the Islamic Republic of Iran’s Air Force (IRIAF) has launched in the country’s central province of Isfahan entered the second day on Friday.
During the operational stage of the drill this morning, the F-4 Phantom fighter jets fired Maverick tactical air-to-ground missiles and the Iranian Qassed smart bombs.
A spokesperson for the war game, codenamed Fadayeeyan Harim Velayat 8, said the warplanes detonated ground targets of the hypothetical enemy by dropping 2000-pound Qassed standoff bombs, which are smart, have pinpoint accuracy, and have been developed by the IRIAF experts.
During Friday morning’s stage of the war game, ultralight aircraft and offense drones were also flown to detect and hit the positions configured to mirror the capabilities of hostile targets.
Different types of bombers, large military transport aircraft, interceptor and reconnaissance planes, and patrol aircraft have taken part in the drill.
