The joint maneuvers by the Army’s Ground, Naval and Air forces cover an area from the east of the Strait of Hormuz to the southern parts of the Gulf of Aden. The drill is the largest of its kind in the region. It deploys different types of military hardware and weapons both in waters and on the ground. Various units of ground forces have also been stationed along Iran’s southeastern borders to assess commanding posts and engineering structures there.
