"We staged 5 sets of drills last year and this year we will have 4 massive exercises on the agenda, including the Ground Force's drone drills which will be staged for the first time, and also cyber wargames," Pourdastan said in a press conference in Tehran on Saturday on the occasion of the National Army Day (April 18).

He said that his forces also plan to stage 2 joint drills with the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) in the Southwestern and Southeastern parts of the country.

Elsewhere, Pourdastan said that the Ground Force is waiting for the permission of the General Staff of the Army to increase the range of its missiles, and said, "Some special ground-to-ground missiles are planned to be added to Ground Force arsenal if approved."

He added that the Ground Force is also working on a joint project with the General Staff of the Army and the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC)'s Aerospace Force to increase the range of its missiles.

The Iranian Armed Forces have recently test-fired different types of newly-developed missiles and torpedoes and tested a large number of home-made weapons, tools and equipment, including submarines, military ships, artillery, choppers, aircrafts, 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.

In September, the Iranian Armed Forces displayed the country's latest home-made military tools, weapons and equipments in large military parades in Tehran and across the country.

During the parades, the Iranian armed forces displayed different weapons and military tools and equipment, including different kinds of fighters, choppers, drones, ground-to-ground missiles, air-to-ground missiles, surface-to-surface missiles, tactical and armed vehicles, surface and underwater vessels, electronic and telecommunication equipment, light and mid-light weapons, different kinds of artillery and mortar-launchers, air defense systems and engineering and logistic equipment.
