Iran to hold large-scale military parade
Sat, 20 Sep 2008
Iran's Armed Forces are set to test the country's state-of-the-art weapons systems in a large-scale naval-ground military parade.
The Islamic Revolution Guards Corp (IRGC) and the Army will take part in the large-scale military parade on Sunday, Fars News Agency reported. Iran's Shahab, Zalzal and Naze'at ballistic missiles, and Kowsar and Noor anti-ship missiles along with the country's electro-optical surveillance systems, tanks, anti-aircraft missiles and smart bombs are expected to be put on display in Sunday's joint military march.
The naval division of the parade will also put a new generation of domestically-built submarines and torpedoes on display. The Iranian Defense Minister Mostafa Mohammad-Najjar said Saturday that the country's routine maneuvers would perfect its combat capabilities and examine newly-devised defense tactics. (Source)
