Bandar Abbas, Hormuzgan Prov, March 31, IRNA
A joint maritime wargame, dubbed as Holy Prophet (PBUH), started here Friday in the Persian Gulf waters.
Combatants from the navy and airforce of the Islamic Republic Army and police, missile units of the air force and Basij (voluntary) forces took part in the joint wargame.
Some 17,000 of combatants have taken part in the wargame, spokesman of the wargame Vice-Rear Admiral Mohammad Ibrahimi Dehghani said on Friday.
Over 1,500 gunboats along with all types of fighters, bombers and choppers have taken part in the wargame, he pointed out.
One unit of Shahab 2 missile is to be launched to resemble peace and friendship among littoral states of the Persian Gulf and Sea of Oman, he said.
During the wargame various anti-offensive operations, telecommunications, satellites, reconnaissance patrols and electronic systems are to be conducted against the hypothetical enemies.
The wargame would be concluded on April 6.

Maybe it has a big smiley face on it?
I want to know about the 1,500 gunboats. What exactly qualifies as a "gunboat"?

The Shahab launch is a warning to littoral States to be peaceful toward Iran - peace and friendship toward us (Iran) - or else. :-))
Using Mo's name gives it "standing" - as on behalf of all Islam, doesn't it. Iran wants to lead the charge to form a global caliphate with other Islamic States bowing to the leadership of the "Caliph Iran".
Have a great weekend. Thanks for the post.
