Iranian Army’s Ground Force successfully test-fired several home-made missiles during Beitol Moqaddas 26 military drills in Isfahan province in Central Iran on Friday.
The home-made Naze’at-10, Naze’at-6 and Fajr-5 missiles were test-fired in the first stage of Beitol Moqaddas 26 exercises in Kashan in Isfahan province.
The first stage of the Army’s Ground Force was held in the presence of the force’s Commander Brigadier General Ahmad Reza Pourdastan in Kashan’s Maranjab Desert today.
The Ground Force’s military exercises were held on the eve of the anniversary of the liberation of the city of Khorramshahr and Beitol Moqaddas military operations during the 1980-88 Iran-Iraq on May 24, 1982.
In March 2013, the Iranian Army Ground Force staged massive missile drills in Central Iran in a bid to test the capabilities of its missile units.
During the wargames, the Iranian army test-fired two new types of missiles, named Naze’at-10 and Fajr-5.
The Fajr-5 is long-range rocket artillery missile with a maximum range of 75 km, while Naze’at-10 is a medium-range ballistic missile.
Iranian officials and commanders have repeatedly stressed that all military exercises and trainings of the Iranian Armed Forces are merely meant to serve deterrent purposes.
