The week-long event which kicked off on Saturday showcases a bewildering array of military and defense equipment developed and already unveiled by the IRGC’s Navy, including missile and radar systems as well as drones and vessels, reported Fars News Agency.
Among the most important accomplishments displayed at the exhibition were different types of missile systems.
One of the missiles put on show was Saeqeh (Thunderbolt) also known as Kerm-e-Abrisham (Silkworm).
Saeqeh has a range of around 300 kilometers (186 miles) and can strike different types of hostile vessels at sea.
Different models of missile launch pads were also showcased at the exhibition, including Khatam 5 and Qari'ah.
Khatam 5 is mainly tasked with firing missiles to strike enemy vessels weighing at least 10,000 tonnes.
It can cover a 9,000-sq-km (3475-square-mile) area.
The specifications of Qari'ah is similar to those of Khatam 5; the major difference is that the latter can fire one missile at a time while the former can launch three. Moreover, Qare’eh can cover an 18,000-sq-km (6950-sq-mile) area.
IRGC’s Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs) were also put on display at the event.
One of the drones on show was US-made Scan Eagle, which was brought down by the IRGC’s naval forces back in 2012.
The technology used in the UAV was then employed to launch a production line to manufacture the Iranian version of Scan Eagle.
Another home-made drone put on display was Sayeh 2 (Shadow 2), with a flight endurance of around 8 hours and a speed of 120 kilometers (74.5 miles).
It has a flight ceiling of 15 thousand feet and an operational radius of 100 kilometers (62 miles).
Kavosh (Exploration) is yet another UAV developed by the IRGC and showcased at the exhibition.
It has a flight endurance of 15 hours, roughly twice that of the American version of the drone.
And one cannot miss Ababil (Swallows), another domestically-developed UAV, at the exhibition.
It has a maximum speed of 200 kilometers (124 miles), with an operational radius of 150 kilometers (93 miles), flight endurance of 8 hours and flight ceiling of 15,000 feet.
Sadeq (Honest) was another drone showcased at the event.
It has a flight ceiling of 15 thousand feet, an operational radius of 200 kilometers (124 miles), a flight endurance of 6 hours and a maximum speed of 200 kilometers (124 miles) an hour.
Also, the Rezvan 4 (Paradise 4) unmanned helicopter seems a perfect complement to the UAVS.
The unmanned chopper is used for patrol and reconnaissance missions within an operational radius of 10 kilometers.
A very high-tech military weapon already test-fired by the IRGC was also displayed at the event. Hoot (Fish) is the fastest sub-surface marine missile in the world.
Hoot which weighs one tonne is the deadliest marine weapon used to target different types of large vessels.
State-of-the-art sea mines were also showcased at the event. They are capable of destroying different types of vessels.
In recent years, Iran has made major breakthroughs in its defense sector and attained self-sufficiency in producing important military equipment and systems.
The Islamic Republic has repeatedly assured other nations, particularly its neighbors, that its military might poses no threat to other countries, reiterating that its defense doctrine is merely based on deterrence.
