What is always amazing in these photos is the pristine condition of Iranian military equipment and cool professionalism. It is testament to the skills and technical capability of Iranian engineers and the high level of professionalism of the armed forces. The ERA (armor reactive) plates on the T-72 are of domestic manufacture and are also being fitted on all armor.

No wonder a US war college study cautioned the braggart US military not to get tangled with Iran in a military confrontation since Iran now has a highly developed high-tech asymmetrical warfare capability and some of the most advanced missile technology in the world. Iranian RAAD's (ATGM) operated by skilled Hezbollah played havoc on Zionist tanks in 2006. Since then Iranian defence warfare tactics have incorporated lessons from US defeats in Iraq, Af-pak and now the drubbing the Salafi cannibals are getting in Syria.

As these regular maneuvers hone Iranian asymmetrical warfare skills, it is noteworthy that Iranian planners have undertaken great effort to incorporate the tactical advantage of Iran's mega-land size and mountain terrain, which is a defenders dream. These mobile units taking advantage of Iran's depth and natural obstacles would give a cardiac arrest to any suicidal invader or aggressor. All kudos to the Artesh, Sepah and Basij. IRAN PAYENDEBAD.

It is great to see that even armored force troops now have Kevlar body armor. Iran has done a great job in manufacturing domestic equipment for the safety of its brave defenders. Hopefully, Hezbollah and Syrians are using it too.

Imagine what if the great nation of IRAN's military power, might and capabilities is not that strong enough to defend its sovereignty?

I doubt the americans share your view indeed only an idiot would fail to take seriously the rise of iranian power in the region,the americans may do stupid things but they are not complete fools

The bigger problem for them than their defeat in afghanistan is the crumbling of the us backed status quo in the middle east,the americans have no answer to this thats why they`re doing the desperate stupid things we see in syria

The total American loss of life in Iraq and Afghanistan is 5000- 6000
That is not "bleeing to death"
Wishful thinking is fine for idiots. That is what Khamenie and IRGC are doing and more rational people like Rohani and Rafsanjani are warning for.
