A high-ranking military commander says the Iranian Army's Ground and Air Forces will conduct a massive exercise in late November, Press TV reported.
Commander of the Iranian Army's Ground Forces Brigadier General Ahmad-Reza Pourdastan said on Monday that the capabilities of armored and airborne units will be tested in the drill, codenamed Qamar-e Bani Hashem.
He added that asymmetric warfare tactics will be practiced during the war games, and various armored, artillery, airborne and electronic units of the Iranian Army's Ground Forces will participate in the military exercise.
On September 23, Pourdastan stated that week-long Qamar-e Bani Hashem drill will be staged in the southeastern part of Iran in an area covering 250,000 square kilometers.
He stressed that advanced domestically designed and manufactured weapons will be tested during the exercise.
Last month, the Iranian Army staged a large-scale military maneuver with the purpose of countering possible enemy missile attacks.
