The commander of Iran’s Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) says the Guards’ naval forces have reached the “quick reaction” capability in the face of any threat, stressing that the enemies have to come to terms with the reality of Iran’s offensive and defensive power.
“Using modern electronic warfare systems, the IRGC Navy has been able to gain complete control over the geography of the Persian Gulf and the Strait of Hormuz, which is one of the honors of our Navy today,” Major General Hossein Salami said on Friday.
He made the remarks during a visit to the IRGC’s naval units on the Persian Gulf islands and the strategic Strait of Hormuz.
Gen. Salami said the IRGC Navy has managed to achieve remarkable progress, particularly in producing state-of-the-art vessels, long-range drones and sea-based guided missiles, in the last three years.
