    Very curious. They even have the UN flag up, but its clearly not actually the UN. Makes me wonder why they have vehicles painted like this. Has Hezbollah ever tried to impersonate UNFIL personel?

    I would think they are willing to work with the UN in peacekeeping missions. Having equipment painted up should mean they are ready to serve.

    Yes. The kidnapping/muder of IDF soldiers Adi Avitan, Omer Soued and Binyamin Avraham in 2000. Hezbollah disguised themselves as UN personnel.

    Straight magazine MP5s. Perfect to fight Baader-Meinhof.
    The poor iranians have the problem that 70s revival is not in fashion right now.
    On the other hand their camo and shades are 80s style....

    Honestly, this just doesn't strike me as the most likely explanation.

    Sure, it could happen, but it means that the battle strategy involves getting a UN peacekeeping mission deployed to Iran and then using this force as a cover for attacks on whoever the enemy is. It just seems overly convoluted IMO. And anyways, why would they publicly display it if their entire strategy was to decieve?

    Now, most everything we seen in this parade every year that is beyond your basic tank from the geographically local units are put on parade for a very specific political purpose. For instance, earlier this year we saw the "IR-300" long range SAM as well as mock-ups/prototypes of the stealth attack drones. There is no way that this move is NOT a political signal from Iran, whatever signal that might be.

    ...combined with ERA of all things. We saw this T-72 way back in 2004 during a tour given to some naval officer i cant remember, but we never heard about it again, not even a rumor. Needless to say it was a surprise when it popped up today.

    The forum uploader messes up the order, but this collection comes from Zanjan, Gorgan, and Isfahan.

    1st - Zanjan
    2nd, 3rd, 4th - Gorgan - (the paraglider has "Lashkar 30 Gorgan" written on it which translates to "30th [Infantry] Division in Gorgan")
    5th - Isfahan
    6th, 7th - Gorgan
    8th, 9th, 10th, 11th, 12th - Zanjan
    13th, 14th, 15th, 16th, 17th, 18th, 19th - Isfahan
    20th, 21st, 22nd, 23rd - Zanjan
