The Iranian forces drilled operations to cut communication routes at Hag missile base and confrontation against possible cruise missile attacks using the intelligence received from the Islamic Republic of Iran Army’s Command Center for Intelligence and Identification.
After the exercises, General Esmayeeli appreciated his forces’ preparedness, and said, “Khatam ol-Anbia Air Defense Base prepares itself against current threats and it should continuously exercise, train and grow ready 100% to safeguard the country’s air borders.”
In relevant remarks earlier this month, Lieutenant Commander of the Iranian Ground Force Brigadier General Kioumars Heidari said his forces have been equipped with state-of-the-art anti-armor and Air Defense weapons and equipment.
“The Ground Force’s Rapid Reaction Force is now equipped with the most modern anti-armor and Air Defense military hardware,” General Heidari told reporters.
He said that the Ground Force’s Rapid Reaction Force has been formed for any possible threat in future, and added, “It is a unique unit in terms of both manpower, defense technologies, fire power and movement capabilities and mobility; these forces can be dispatched to the most remote regions of the country in the shortest period of time, that is within four hours, and immediately act and engage in battles.”
General Heidari pointed to the equipment supplied to the Ground Force’s Rapid Reaction Force, and said, “These weapons and equipment are unique and supplied to no other Army unit; the RPG-29 weapon system which enjoys mobility is one of such equipment.”
He referred to the heliborne and parachuting operations training of the Rapid Reaction Force, and said, “This unit can carry out missions under any kind of condition and in any place… .”
