TEHRAN (Press Shia) – The Iranian Army Ground Force’s soldiers on Friday practiced tactics to fight off Takfiri terrorist groups during a military exercise in central Iran.
In the large-scale drill, underway in Iran’s central province of Isfahan, the Army Ground Force Airborne Unit flew two Mohajer-2 pilotless aircraft over the war game zone to detect the hypothetical Takfiri enemy’s forces, take aerial images from inaccessible areas, and specify the number of hostile forces and their equipment.
The homegrown drone, manufactured by the Army Ground Force, is a stealth aircraft with high flight endurance and capable of flying in various climatic conditions.
Two RF-4 Phantom jets of the Air Force also scrambled in tandem with the Ground Force Airborne Unit’s mission over the drill zone.
In another operation, commandos from the Army Ground Force Special Forces, known as the 65th Brigade, parachuted into the zone to repel a Takfiri attack and capture the terrorist groups’ ringleaders.
The large-scale exercise, being held in Nasrabad region, involves around 12,000 assault forces from all units of the Army Ground Force.
During the war game, whose purpose is to evaluate the recent changes in the structure of the Army Ground Force, the participating forces focus on modern offense tactics.
The other purposes of the first stage of the drill include assessment of the power, mobility and agility of the troops as well as the aerial logistics of the airborne unit’s copters.
