TEHRAN (Tasnim) – The Iranian Army Ground Forces on Tuesday launched a military exercise along the Makran coasts southeast of the country.
The war game, codenamed Eqtedar (Power)-99, began on Tuesday with the participation of airborne units, special forces and rapid reaction brigades.
The troops attending the drill receive logistical and combat support from the Air Force and the Army Ground Force Airborne Division in the coastal zones.
Military commanders say the main purpose of the drill is to evaluate the mobility and offense power of the rapid reaction corps and the mobile offense units of the Army Ground Force.
The Iranian military forces have held several massive exercises over the past few weeks.
In remarks on the sidelines of a large-scale exercise that the IRGC Aerospace Force had staged in the Central Desert of Iran on Saturday, Chief of Staff of the Iranian Armed Forces Major General Mohammad Hossein Baqeri said such drills indicate the Iranian Armed Force’s preparedness in all arenas.
