Iran has successfully test-fired the indigenous Shalamcheh missile on the third day of large-scale military drills in the eastern part of the country.

The Shalamcheh missile was fired from the Mersad (Ambush) air defense system at a Karrar drone, which was destroyed, during the Modafe’an-e Aseman-e Velayat 4 (Defenders of the Skies of Velayat 4) drill on Wednesday.

The medium-range Shalamcheh, which can be also used as a short-range missile, travels at the speed of three Machs and is resistant to enemy electronic warfare.

Iran’s Army and the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) are jointly staging the massive military drill which began on Monday.

An upgraded high-precision long-range S-200 ground-to-air defense system, and two indigenous missile systems named Qader and Ya Zahra III were successfully tested on Wednesday

Electronic and surveillance systems used to detect and intercept manned and unmanned enemy aircraft flying at low altitude, Iran Air Force F-14 and F-4 fighter jets, artillery fire, shoulder-launched weapons as well as low-altitude missile systems were also tested during the maneuver’s third day.
