Army forces successfully test-fired a number of low-altitude air defense systems during a military exercise in the northern city of Babolsar.
Speaking on the sidelines of a war game on Saturday, the commander of the Army’s air defense forces in Babolsar, Colonel Rahmatollah Mola, said plans to promote the preparedness of the armed forces are high on the agenda of the Army, Tasnim News Agency reported. Accordingly, the exercise was staged as planned and heavy weapons were employed, the commander said. Mola added that during the drill, low-altitude air defense systems were used. The Iranian armed forces hold routine military drills throughout the year. Iranian military experts and technicians have in recent years made great headways in manufacturing a broad range of indigenous equipment, making the armed forces mostly self-sufficient in the arms sphere. Tehran has assured that its military might poses no threat to regional countries, saying that Iran’s defense doctrine is entirely based on deterrence.
