TEHRAN (Tasnim) – The Iranian Navy for the first time test-fired a domestically-made smart torpedo dubbed “Valfajr” in large-scale military exercises south of the country and the torpedo successfully hit the target.
During the final day of the Navy’s war game codenamed “Velayat 95", submarines deployed to waters 100 kilometers from the coast hit their floating targets using their advanced detection and tracking systems.
During the drills on Tuesday, the Valfajr torpedo was fired from the homegrown Ghadir Submarine and successfully destroyed a floating target.
Anti-submarine helicopters of the Navy also participated in the military exercises, and fired and hit subsurface targets with state-of-the-art torpedoes.
The last phase of the Velayat 95 war game, which began on Sunday in a vast maritime zone, continued on Tuesday.
The drills cover an area of 2 million square kilometers, stretching from the Strait of Hormuz and Oman Sea to the north of the Indian Ocean and Bab al-Mandab Strait.
A range of naval equipment is utilized in the drills, including homegrown submarines and helicopters. The previous phases of the war game were held in 2016.
In addition, Iranian Navy commando units are carrying out special operations in the Makran region located in the southeast of the country, along the coasts of the Gulf of Oman.
