Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) to Hold Major Naval War Game

by on 14 December 2019

Commander of the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) Navy Rear Admiral Ali Reza Tangsiri unveiled plans for holding a large-scale military exercise.

In an interview with Tasnim on Saturday, Rear Admiral Tangsiri said the massive naval war game will be launched in the near future.

He noted that the latest military achievements and equipment of the Navy will be unveiled during the exercise.

Staging war games and displaying new equipment signify the Islamic Republic’s military progress and power, the commander added.

Rear Admiral Tangsiri noted that all the ordnance in service at the IRGC Navy has been manufactured inside the country.

He further highlighted Iran’s “full intelligence dominance” over the region.

In December last year, the IRGC carried out a large-scale war game in the Persian Gulf.

In comments in November 2018, Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyed Ali Khamenei urged the Iranian Armed Forces to boost their military capabilities and preparedness in such a way that the enemies would not ever dare think of threaten the country.

Pointing to the plots that the enemies and rivals have hatched against the Islamic Republic, Ayatollah Khamenei emphasized the necessity to step up extraordinary efforts in all areas, as in the Navy, to thwart the hostile plots and compensate for the shortcomings.
