Armed Forces to Stage Drill

Armed Forces to Stage Drill

The army and the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) plan to stage a joint military exercise in southeastern Iran in the second half of the current Iranian calendar year, the army commander announced on Sunday. 

The drill will cover an area of 250,000 square kilometers from the northern part of Sistan and Baluchestan Province down to the coasts of the Sea of Oman, Press TV quoted Brigadier General Ahmad Reza Pourdastan as saying.

He said the armed forces enhance their military capabilities in proportion to threats, adding, "We are currently working on a defense doctrine in proportion to the enemies’ threats. So we will array our tactics in line with threats."   

The commander noted that the ground forces have been deployed in Iran’s western and southwestern border regions and strengthened their units to counter any possible threats by the enemies.

He said the ground forces are capable of building and upgrading tanks, saying the country would unveil new achievements on September 22.

Iran is set to unveil later this month a new indigenous surface-to-air missile defense system named Talash-3, which was successfully test-fired recently.
