Warplanes Provide Air Support in Army Drills

The Iranian Army's Ground Force staged the second day of a large-scale military exercise in the country's southeastern regions on Monday with the aerial bombardment of targets along the coasts of Makran by the Sea of Oman.
The drills, codenamed "Muhammad Rasoulallah [Muhammad, the Messenger of God (PBUH)] Four", resumed on Monday morning with the aerial support of fighter jets from the Air Force, Tasnim News Agency reported. Two Dassault Mirage F1 warplanes hit ground targets on the Makran coasts at the beginning of Monday's operations.
The Ground Force also unveiled and brought into service a series of new equipment, including homegrown snipers.
Covering an area of more than 220,000 square kilometers southeast of Iran, the war games take place in three main stages.
Highlights of the first day included heliborne operations to deploy commandos, electronic warfare units, drone flights for intelligence operation and counterterrorism operations by the Special Forces.
The Iranian armed forces hold routine military drills throughout the year. In September, Chairman of the General Staff of the Iranian Armed Forces Major General Mohammad Hossein Baqeri said there will be no delay or slowdown in the country's military tests and war games, stressing that Iran has devised comprehensive defense strategies to counter all threats.
