Iran will hold a massive air defense drill in October incorporating aerial and ground forces, Iranian air defense commander Brigadier General Farzad Esmaili announced on Saturday.

Esmaili said that the maneuver will include all of the Iranian army’s air defense systems, as well as Iranian air force fighter jets, and the Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corps, Iranian state news agency Press TV reported. [2]

According to Press TV, “one of the initiatives in the drill will be… preparing the air defense personnel for the management of crisis.”

Reuters quoted Esmaili telling Iranian newspaper Hamshahri on Friday, ”Today our systems are prepared in a serious way for modern air threats, such that the performance of the systems compared to the previous profile has improved.”
