IRGC drones capture strikingly precise footage of US aircraft carrier

The Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) has released strikingly precise and close footage of an American aircraft carrier captured by the elite force’s drones during an overflight of the vessel in the Persian Gulf.

The Corps released the footage on Wednesday as means of vividly portraying its state-of-the-art advancements in the field of drone technology, Press TV reported.

The video recorded by an apparently four-strong drone squadron, provides real-time and remarkably close details of every warplane as well as other military aircraft and equipment deployed on the carrier.

The drones also captured what appears to be a support vessel sailing alongside the main vessel.

The IRGC footage shows UAVs of various makes, including the ones used for recording the video of the carrier, either taking off or roaring by across the sky.

The second part of the footage is entitled to precision attacks by the Corps’ kamikaze drones as they are hitting various targets, including a tank.

The UAVs are seen slamming into the targets with surgical accuracy and smashing them into smithereens.

This is not the first time, the Corps, which is Iran’s elite defense force, flaunts its achievements and prowess in the area.

Last September, it released images of a US strike group near the Strait of Hormuz in the same strategic waters.

The Corps and the Iranian Army fielded their drones alongside numerous other defensive means at their disposal in a set of 20 countrywide military exercises in January.

The back-to-back drills went underway as the US and its allies had stepped up their provocative maneuvers in the Persian Gulf.
