The event took place during the second and last stage of the Great Prophet Mohammad 6 war game, which began last week.

Colonel Asghar Gelichkhani said during the first stage of the war game, stable targets on land and during the second stage, mobile targets on water were hit.

During the first stage, the domestically-manufactured Ghadir radar system was tested for the first time to detect missiles fired during the war game.

Having a range of 1,100 kilometers and a height of 300 kilometers, Qadir radar system is used for detecting radar-evading aircraft, cruise and ballistic missiles and low-orbit satellites.

During the second day of the first stage of the war game, which was conducted last week, 14 missiles including nine Zelzal, two Shahab 1, two Shahab 2, and one Shahab 3 were fired.
