Iranian Commander: Army Using Advanced Communication Systems in Isfahan Drills
“State-of-the-art communication and Electronic Warfare Self Protection (EWSP) systems are used in Beit ul-Moqaddas wargames by the Islamic Republic’s Ground Force,” Head of the Ground Force’s IT and Communications Organization (FAWA) General Mohsen Talebi Sayyad told reporters on the sidelines of the drills in the Central province of Isfahan.
He said that during the exercises, communications are mostly made in the two forms of fixed and mobile, adding that secured lines have been created for fixed communication and tactical communication devices have been mounded on military vehicles and weapons.
Iran’s Ground Force started massive missile drills codenamed ‘Heidar Karrar 3’ in the Central parts of the country on Sunday as a part of Beit ul-Moqaddas wargames series.
Different infantry, mechanized and air force units are participating in the exercises.
Earlier today, Iran unveiled an ultra-heavy tank transporter named ‘Pouria’ and ‘Felaq’ optimized tank.
“Pouria ultra-heavy tank carrier and Felaq tanks were unveiled during Beit ul-Moqaddas drills,” General Massoud Reza Zawarei, the head of the Iranian Ground Force’s Research and Self-Sufficiency Jihad, told reporters in Isfahan today.
He said that Felaq is equipped with automatic and stabilized Dushka weapon which is controlled by the crew inside.
The Iranian Armed Forces have recently test-fired different types of newly-developed missiles and torpedoes and tested a large number of home-made weapons, tools and equipment, including submarines, military ships, artillery, choppers, aircrafts, UAVs and air defense and electronic systems, during massive military drills.
Defense analysts and military observers say that Iran’s wargames and its advancements in weapons production have proved as a deterrent factor.
