According to the Iranian military blog site the Arkenstone,...
55th Airborne Brigade: The 55th airborne brigade is based out of Shiraz. Identifiable via the duck hunter camo, a black beret and two distinctive patches on the right upper arm, visible below. They are occasionally visible wearing body armour. They are armed with G3 rifles. They jump, most likely out of the C-130H’s seen in Shiraz.

It's worth mentioning that the article of mine that wiki cites ('copies' is a better word) is old and is relatively innacurate overall. I'm continually working on revising it, but it is a work in progress. For instance, just the other day I happened to stumble upon an armored brigade in E.Azerbaijan that I had no idea existed! Just take everything with a grain of salt.

Sorry for the late response,
i don't know exactly, looks more like routine training. This video should show that all members of this unit have high moral, are well trained and are ready to defend their country.

Hi,

Just let me tell you that I admire the work you are doing on Iran's military. Your hard work is always appreciated. The military order articles of yours is a masterpiece, and I mean it, and so are many of your other articles, like the Z-3 article, for example. Your writing is professional, balanced, honest and above all - very interesting. I hope you never stop writing about Iran's military. I agree fully with you that many of the Wikipedia articles should be taken with a grain of salt. I know that you mentioned some other Wikipedia article too, in another thread. Anyways, one of the reasons I joined this forum is because of people like you.

Not to try to "steal" any points, but this blog section should be read by every military enthusiast, who follows the Iranian military, both non-Iranians and Iranians:

I can't tell you how much I appreciate your sentiment JF.
I like to think that the Iranian military is interesting enough on it's own to write about even if I didn't publish any of it, but the fact that I can share what I find fascinating with a community of like-minded people who appreciate it makes it much more worthwhile. More than that, I am fully convinced that if IMF wasn't here, or wasn't as robust as it has become since 2009, my writing wouldn't be a tenth of what it is. I can say with some confidence that I don't foresee myself quitting this whole enterprise anytime soon. In fact, I'm hoping to go back to school for a degree in the Persian language so I can keep on doing what I do.

... For instance, just the other day I happened to stumble upon an armored brigade in E.Azerbaijan that I had no idea existed!
...and since writing this, I've also stumbled across a commando division I was equally unaware of. I half expect myself to stub my toe on a T-72 while walking to the grocery store "What is this, another armoured brigade?"  :D

JF-jan, although I won't get TOO carried away, especially considering their long and turbulent histories on IMF, both Ayyash and Eagle2009 have indeed come a long way.  I can't say either are the 'gold standard' of information but, then again, nobody is these days. More importantly, however, I can say their presentation of information has become more critical and thoughtful.  What you see today is the result of years of corrective conditioning(!) and torture(!) on IMF.  It was gory and painful to all, I'm sure, but the results are apparent. So much so, even I no longer keep a watchful eye on them. Most of the time. :sarc:

So, yes, IMF continues to improve in leaps and bounds!

(Note:  I hope I'm being redundant by saying that given the state of misinformation and factless and unsupported content that is rife on the 'internet' today, naturally, I cannot endorse, believe, support, or accept any of links posted by me or others.  I personally find them interesting, however, as they open new perspectives for me.  I leave it to the reader to glean what they can or want from them).
