“We can easily target hostile aircraft carriers with our supersonic missiles and we have advanced technology that would leave our enemies in awe,” said Brig. Gen. Hossein Salami, the IRGC deputy commander. (Courtesy: Piss TV)

A senior member of Iran’s powerful Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps (IRGC) warned on Friday that the Iranian military had the ability to target aircraft carriers using supersonic missiles.

“We can easily target hostile aircraft carriers with our supersonic missiles and we have advanced technology that would leave our enemies in awe,” Brig. Gen. Hossein Salami, the IRGC deputy commander, said during a speech carried by the official Iranian news agency IRNA.

His remarks come a day after senior commanders in Iran’s armed forces announced large-scale military maneuvers in the south of the country, stretching from the north of the Indian Ocean to the strategic Strait of Hormuz in the Arabian Gulf.

Iran’s navy chief, Rear Admiral Habibollah Sayari, was quoted by IRNA on Thursday as saying that the five-day drills would extend to the Gulf of Aden. He asked that foreign forces "leave the area" to avoid incidents.

Brig. Gen. Abdolrahim Mousavi, the deputy commander of the Iranian army, was quoted by the news agency as saying that various “surface and under-surface units” from the Iranian army, IRGC and Basij would take part in the drills.

Mousavi said the war games, which are set for Dec. 25, aimed at boosting the combat capabilities of the Iranian armed forces.

The commander said the drills carried “a message of peace and friendship for regional states as Iran is never seeking dominance over other nations,” according to IRNA.

During Friday’s speech, Salami praised Iran’s technological accomplishments, particularly at the level of its missile technology.
Despite sanctions, “we [Iran] secured these accomplishments and today we can claim that … we are among the world’s leaders in this [missile technology] domain,” he said.

Iran is a joke, but they look competent because Arabs are a bigger joke.

"Arabian Gulf" perhaps in another world, but in this one it is Persian Gulf, if you want to be respected as an international news organization you must follow the international standards and norms, otherwise there will only be chaos.

I really don't understand what's with the Arabian vs Persian Gulf thing! Arabs call it the Arabian Gulf and the Persian call it Gulf of Persia, the Iraq call it the Gulf of Basra. Not a big deal after all. Is that what drew you attention from the whole article?(_)-(_)

Woh looks like the thread got a little heated because of an Iranian nationalist in the house. Not hating on Iran, just the few corrupt people in power that are causing unnecessary anxiety in the region by self proclamations of having nuclear weapons and ballistic missiles and now supersonic missiles. What are you trying to do ? Scare other countries to do what ?
