Army Ground Force Stages Drill in Central Iran

TEHRAN (Tasnim) – The Iranian Army Ground Force launched a large-scale military exercise in the central province of Isfahan on Friday.

The war game, code-named Eqtedar (Power) 1402, involves troops from all units of the Army Ground Force and will last for two days in a vast area of Isfahan.

The spokesman for the drill said the infantry regiments, armored divisions, missile and artillery units, the Ground Force airborne division, drone units, electronic warfare units, and the support teams from the Air Force have taken part in the exercise.

He said the war game conforms with the new combat structure of the Army Ground Force, which includes weapons and tactics that can hit targets in long ranges with precision strikes, are smart, and can be automated and integrated into networks.

Apart from evaluating the combat preparedness of the Ground Force units, the exercise is aimed at improving the country’s deterrent power against the modern threats and ensure sustainable security, he added.

Iran’s Armed Forces hold routine military exercises throughout the year.

Iranian officials have repeatedly underscored that the country will not hesitate to strengthen its military capabilities which are entirely meant for defense, and that Iran’s defense capabilities will be never subject to negotiations.
