Possible, but look at how the guy on the truck is dressed.
Looks to me as chemmical outfit. Could be a firefighting outfit, but it looks as if it is chemmical protective outfit.

By the way i've checked out here
Equipment_of_the_Iranian_Army Equipment_of_the_Iranian_Army
I don't know if the info is credable, but it looks like Iran truly have some nice equipment.

Actually i will by no means like to be in shoes of Iran government, they have ugly decision to make:
fight > lose war -> sell oil sources to USA companies
or
surrender without war-> sell oil sources to USA companies ...

Flexing in this case is pathetic, unless u have nukes and on they bad they not have them ...

They march like Nazis!! Theocratic militaristic posturing for what is an army roughly in line with Saddam's, pre Gulf war.

I think you'll find that a country like Luxembourg could take them out.

In the absence of air superiority, they have nothing. This garbage is drecktitude to overawe Bahrain and the UAE.....major powers n'est ce pas?

Idle threats to divert attention away from the incompetence of religious masturbation for the last 30 years.

Iran flexes it's atrophied muscle tissue. Obsolete equipment and 50 year old technology.

Iran have some modern anti-air weapons in its arsenal.
In wiki link i have posted in one of my posts here, you guys can check out. Of course the credability of the source is questionable.

Click the image to open in full size. I've only seen North Korean and Nazi soldiers march like that. And only the Nazi's had any of the real power to back up such ridiculous marching.
Not even soldiers in the archaic times of the 19th century marched like that.

I saw those suits being used by the Russians in CoD: Black Ops.


PS: Black Ops is set in the 60's.
