Iran has successfully deployed the “armed ground tactic” in the country’s sensitive regions, a deputy commander of the Iranian Army says.
“The armed ground tactic has become fully operational,” ISNA quoted Brigadier General Ali Arasteh as saying on Wednesday.
He noted that the doctrine of the Iranian Army is completely defensive, adding that the country organizes defensive maneuvers taking tactics of unbalanced war into consideration.
“We conduct all exercises and maneuvers of ground forces according to the latest obtained data on a region and then we carry out our drills after … observing the military situation of the specific region,” he further explained.
Iran has achieved numerous breakthroughs in the defense sector and reached self-sufficiency in producing various types of military equipment and systems.
Earlier in January, Iranian Defense Minister Brigadier General Ahmad Vahidi said the Defense Ministry delivered new naval cruise missile systems to the Navy.
General Vahidi said the deployment of the missile systems along the country’s coastline would not only boost national defense capabilities, but play a key role in maintaining regional security and stability as well.
Iran says it has managed to develop modern military hardware, including missiles, missile launchers and vessels.
The Islamic Republic, however, has reiterated on numerous occasions that its military might is merely defensive and aimed at deterrence and repelling possible acts of aggression.
