ICBPS- Iran has unveiled a new domestic radar system dubbed “Soroush” and “Misaq” last week after tensions with the United States spiked.
The Islamic Republic of Iran’s Army unveiled the domestic radar system during Holy Defense Week (an annual event to commemorate eight years of alleged resistance of Iran-Iraq War) and deployed it in its integrated air defense network, reported IRGC-run Tasnim News.
The new radar system can reportedly detect targets with small cross-section areas at low and medium altitudes within a range of 220 Km, it’s able to carry out missions in all weather conditions using semiconductor technologies.
The army also unveiled “Sepehr” vertical take-off and landing (VTOL) drone, “Shahab-2”, and “Hodhod-4” VTOL drone for the first time — as they can take off from naval vessels.
Further, the Iran army introduced new products include two amphibious helicopters and four combat choppers armed with missiles.
“All navy operations of the IRGC are now carried out with homegrown drones as the new aircraft has joined its fleet,” according to the army.
On September 23, Tasnim reported that an IRGC homegrown drone detected a U.S. strike group, including the USS Nimitz aircraft carrier, before the flotilla passed through the Strait of Hormuz.
“We closely monitor all U.S. moves in the region, including the Indian Ocean,” claimed the Admiral.
Iran’s naval forces closely watch U.S. vessels’ movements in the region — even the name of the commander of each American vessel and “what eligibility criterion went through, and his idiosyncrasy are archived in the databases of the Islamic Republic of Iran.”
We observe the U.S. Navy fleets from the origin to destination, where they get the ropes from the ship to the pier when docking, he declared.
Units from the navy, air force, and ground forces on Thursday participate in a nearly two million-square-kilometer (772,200-square-mile) area of the Gulf of Oman, according to the state-run TV.
“Submarines and drones had also been deployed,” dubbed Zolfaghar-99.
In an Op-Ed, Hossein Shariatmadari threatened that President Donald Trump is the primary target of IRGC to avenge the U.S. killing of top general Qassem Soleimani in early July.
The puppet, whose newspaper is Khamenei’s echo chamber, said “Trump, as the killer of our martyred Haj Qassem Soleimani, should know he will be a primary target of the IRGC for the rest of his life.”
“No matter if he is the president of United States at the time of revenge or not, he will be pursued as IRGC’s main target for the rest of his life,” Shariatmadari added.
In another controversial comment, Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) threatened Bahrain on Saturday and said it would face “harsh revenge” from its own people and Palestinian over its normalization ties with Israel.
