A military exercise staged by the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps in western Iran will feature asymmetrical warfare tactics, a senior commander said. Speaking to Tasnim News Agency on Tuesday, Commander of Najaf Ashraf Base Lieutenant General Mohammad Nazar Azimi said the IRGC Ground Forces units attending the wargame, code-named “Imam Ali [PBUH]”, will implement tactics for fighting asymmetrical battles. The wargame started on Monday and will last for four days in western parts of Iran. According to IRGC Ground Forces Commander Lieutenant General Mohammad Pakpour, the improvement of military capabilities of the force and development of new methods of warfare are among the main objectives of the exercises. In a separate interview with Tasnim News Agency on Monday, Pakpour announced extensive plans for the development of IRGC’s newly-established airborne unit. He said the IRGC Ground Forces is developing the fleet of helicopters and boosting airborne bases across the country.
