Iran fires missiles, torpedoes and suicide drones in massive war games in chilling threat to West
The annual exercise known as Zolfaqar got under way on Sunday in the south of the country near the mouth of the Persian Gulf.
As part of the exercise a number of missiles were fired on Monday, including Qader, Qadir and Nasr anti-ship rockets, as well as the 15-Khordad and Mersad.
The submarines IRIS Tariq and IRIS Qadir also fired Valfajr torpedoes.
Suicide drones were also used to destroy simulated enemies.
One drone model, known as the Arash, was seen in footage released by the Iranian military, which flew a long distance before it crashed into a predesignated target on the side of a mountain.
