TEHRAN, (BM) – Iranian and Russian media have claimed in recent hours that Iran’s air force has managed to deactivate the anti-aircraft system of US warships in the Persian Gulf region
According to Iran’s Tasnim News Agency, which published the IRGC’s photos on Wednesday, the overflight occurred before the Nimitz transited the Strait of Hormuz. According to the US Navy, the 100,000-ton warship, along with two guided-missile cruisers and a guided-missile destroyer, passed through the waterway and entered the Persian Gulf on September 18.
According to Tasnim, IRGC Navy Commander Rear Admiral Ali Reza Tangsiri said the force detected the Nimitz’s strike group using domestically-produced Mohajer-6 drones. He made the remarks at a ceremony inducting 188 of the small, new, fixed-wing unmanned aerial vehicles into IRGC service.
