Iran's military forces and warfighting capabilities: the threat in the Northern Gulf

Book Cover
Average Rating
Praeger Security International,
Pub. Date:
Focusing on capabilities rather than intentions, the authors (both of the Center for Strategic and International Studies) analyze the current status of the military and security forces of the Islamic Republic of Iran. They provide analysis of military spending and manpower and the material strength and organization structures of the Iranian Army, the Revolutionary Guard Corps, the Air Force, and the Navy. They also review Iran's paramilitary, security, and intelligence forces and its long-range missile arsenal. Various estimates of chemical and biological weapons programs are provided, alongside consideration of a possible nuclear weapons program (for which the International Atomic Energy Agency has found no evidence). A final chapter reviews strategic capabilities in a variety of scenarios of confrontation between Iran and the US and/or Israel. Annotation ©2008 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (
