The Iran's military successfully fired home-made high-precision missiles, Toufan (Hurricane) and Dehlaviyeh, and optimized air-to-ground tactical maverick missiles during the military drills underway in Southern Iran on Friday, December 26.
Toufan and Dehlaviyeh anti-armor air-to-ground missiles were fired by the Panha 2091 "Toufan", which is an Iranian overhaul and upgrade of the US Bell AH-1J Sea Cobra light-attack helicopters
     
The anti-armor Toufan and Dehlaviyeh missiles successfully hit and destroyed their targets during the wargames in the Southern and Southeastern parts of Iran.

Toufan was fired both from land and helicopters during the drills. Dehlaviyeh is a laser-guided anti-armor missile capable of hitting mobile and stationary targets exactly like its foreign version which is AGM-114 Hellfire.

"The high-precision Toufan missile with a range of 4km can both be used as a land-based missile and be fired from helicopters during the wargames," Iranian Ground Force Commander Brigadier General Pourdastan told FNA on Thursday.

The optimized AGM-65 Maverick air-to-ground tactical missiles were fired by F-4 Phantom II and Su-24 fighter aircraft
     
The optimized Maverick air-to-ground missiles were fired on the fourth day of Mohammad Rasoulallah (PBUH) drills on Sunday by F-4 and Sukhoi 24 fighter jets to support the Naval units present in the wargames zone.

The missiles have been produced by the Iranian defensive industries and supplied to the Air Force.

Also, conducting air patrol missions, aerial refueling with Sukhoi 24 jets and supporting other units were among the other drilling plans of the Iranian Air Force in the fourth stage of the wargames.

The six-day military exercises codenamed Mohammad Rasoulallah (PBUH) will cover an area of 2.2 million square kilometers from the East of the Strait of Hormuz to the Southern parts of the Gulf of Aden.
