January 19th local time, the Iranian army held a military exercise code-named “Force-99” on the coast of Macram in southeastern Iran.
The army commander said that the main purpose of the exercise was to assess the mobility and offensive capabilities of the army units.
During the exercise, hundreds of Army airborne troops parachuted one after another from several C-130 transport planes and landed at the preset location.
At the same time, transport aircraft dropped some weapons and military equipment into the designated area, including 107mm rockets and 23mm cannons.
Subsequently, the airborne troops quickly assembled the airdrop equipment and seized the designated area on the Macram coast.
In addition, Iranian army special forces also participated in the exercise to assist the airborne troops in completing the established tasks.
On the same day, Salamy, the commander-in-chief of the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps of Iran, said that the Iranian armed forces had recently held
A number of military exercises, which demonstrated Iran’s determination to combat enemy aggression and defend national independence and territorial integrity.
These military exercises sent a serious signal to the enemy that the Iranian armed forces were ready to fight for the defense of the country.
This military exercise is the fifth military exercise held by the Iranian armed forces this month.
Some analysts say that on the one hand, the intensive military exercises, on the one hand, are in response to the previous military activities of the United States in the Persian Gulf, showing that the Iranian armed forces are fully prepared to deal with enemy threats.
On the other hand, they deter relevant countries in the region by demonstrating Iran’s military strength, adding chips to possible negotiations with the United States later.
