Iran is marking its National Army Day with large-scale military parades across the country, showcasing its latest achievements in the defense sector.

Units of the Iranian Army’s Ground Forces, Navy, Air Force and Khatam al-Anbiya Air Defense Base are taking part in the parades, which are underway across the country.

In Tehran, President Hassan Rouhani and top military commanders of the Army and Islamic Revolution Guards Corps [IRGC] are attending the parade near the mausoleum of Imam Khomeini, the late founder of the Islamic Republic.

During the parade, Iranian Armed Forces displayed their new defense achievements, advanced military equipment and hardware.

This year’s Army Day celebrations featured the aerial performance of domestically-built Kowsar and Saeqeh bombers.

Moreover, MiG-29, F-4 Phantom and F-14 Tomcat warplanes also took part in the parade. The maneuvers also saw KC-747 and KC-707 aerial refueling tankers fly from bases situated in the cities of Tabriz, Tehran, Hamedan and Isfahan.

Missiles, submarines, armored vehicles, radars and electronic warfare systems were also put on display.
