IRGC also put to test the latest version of its single-engine tactical unmanned aerial vehicle, named Mohajer, capable of carrying a multispectral surveillance payload and up to two precision-guided munitions.

The operations also included Bavar missile air defense system and Sukhoi Su-22, old Russian fighter-bombers, as well as surface-to-surface ballistic missiles.
