TEHRAN (FNA)- Commander of the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps Second Naval Zone General Ali Razmjou announced on Saturday that the IRGC Navy has increased the range of its drones in the Persian Gulf.
“Increasing the range of missiles and drone systems are among our achievements in terms of equipment, and we are now able to cover different areas in the Northern, Central and Southern parts of the Persian Gulf with our drone systems,” Razmjou said in a press conference in Tehran on Saturday.
Stressing that the IRGC Navy is equipped with different types of weapons and seeks to maintain its might and power in the Persian Gulf, he said, “I emphasize that all these capabilities are aimed at increasing Iran’s deterrent power.”
Razmjou, meantime, underscored that the IRGC Navy is standing against all threats in the Persian Gulf strongly and powerfully.
In relevant remarks in April, Commander of the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps Navy Rear Admiral Ali Fadavi underlined the IRGC’s preparedness and power to repel all types of threats posed by submarines and giant warships.
“Based on security and defensive strategies, we have the necessary capabilities to repel different threats in marine and geopolitical fields in the Persian Gulf and the surrounding areas,” Fadavi said, addressing the Iranian people in the Southern city of Abadan.
“We have exercised defensive measures against possible large-scale threats that could be posed by warships and giant cruisers at different levels of coast-to-sea, sea-to-coast, air-to-sea, ground-to-air and subsurface confrontation,” he added.
