    PressTV - 'Iran to hold massive naval drill'

    A senior Iranian commander has announced the upcoming launch of ten-day massive naval exercises in an area covering 2,000 kilometers.


    Iranian Navy Commander Rear Admiral Habibollah Sayyari said at a press conference on Thursday that the naval maneuvers dubbed Velayat 90 start on Saturday and will cover an area stretching from the east of the Strait of Hormuz in the Persian Gulf to the Gulf of Aden.

    According to Sayyari, this is the first time that Iran's Navy carries out naval drills in such a vast area.

    He added the exercises will manifest Iran's military prowess and defense capabilities in the international waters, convey a message of peace and friendship to regional countries, and test the newest military equipment among other objectives of the drills.

    Rear Admiral Sayyari said that the newest missile systems and torpedoes will be employed in the maneuvers, adding that the most recent tactics used in subsurface battles will also be demonstrated in the maneuvers.

    He also said that Iranian destroyers, missile-launching vessels, logistic vessels, drones and coastal missiles will also be tested.

    If Iran, Pakistan, China and Russia stand together, we could resist US plans to dominate the world. Call us the "PRIC."

    Neither China nor Russia is foolish enough to engage in a direct confrontation with USA and damage their economic growth

    The West's lapdog in South Asia could never understand the thinking of superpowers like China and Russia. Don't even try.

    I think Iran needs some bigger destroyers and frigates, and in addition some bigger subs.
