Army Tests Different Types of Simulators

TEHRAN (FNA)- The Iranian Army Ground Force tested different types of home-made simulators in military drills in the country's Central province of Isfahan.



The wargames, dubbed as Beit ol-Moqaddas 25, started on May 20 in the general zone of Nasrabad in Isfahan province and will last until May 24, the anniversary of the liberation of Khorramshahr city from the Iraqi occupation during the (1980-1988) war.

Lieutenant Commander of Ground Force for Training General Hossein Shokohi said the army tested direct-fire and artillery simulators as well as smart surface-to-surface missile simulators on Thursday.

The simulators will also provide a comprehensive analysis of the Iranian Army's fire efficiency and precision-targeting, the commander added.

Different army units, including air force, airborne, infantry, armored, cavalry, artillery, air-defense, drone, communications and logistical units have participated in the wargames.

The Iranian Army has recently test-fired different types of newly-developed missiles and torpedoes and tested a large number of its home-made weapons, tools and equipments, including submarines, military ships, artillery, choppers, aircraft, 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, specially at a time of heightened threats by the US.
