 The Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) launched a massive drone combat and assault wargame, codenamed 'Ela Beit ul-Muqaddas-1', over the Persian Gulf waters, south of Iran, on Thursday, Mehr News reported.

During the drill, the IRGC Aerospace Force flew tens of unmanned aerial vehicles toward a target on a small island in the Persian Gulf.

The squadron of the aerial vehicles, including 50 Iranian versions of the US RQ-170 Sentinel stealth drones, took off from bases as far as a thousand kilometers away from the operation zone to bomb the target.

The 50 domestic RQ-170 drones and a number of other combat and assault pilotless planes attacked a spot on Bani Farur Island in Iran’s territorial waters in the Persian Gulf.

All the aircraft in the war game successfully bombed the target at the same time.
