A top Iranian general, Major General Mohammad Hossein Baqeri, is declaring that training exercises and war games are no longer sufficient to maintain preparedness and that they need battlefield experience by deploying to a zone Iran is involved with. As far as I know, they are giving logistical support to Syria through its proxy militias as well as to the Ansar-Allah (Houthi) and Yemens armed forces. Yemen is essentially the proxy battleground that represents the ultimate clash of empires of the East an West. US backed Saudi is on a rampage for the West while Russia backed Iran provides support for Yemen for the East.

Iranian Forces Need Combat Engagement to Boost Capabilities: Top General
Mere reliance on military training and holding war games would not satisfy the whole demands of the armed forces, Major General Mohammad Hossein Baqeri said in a military ceremony in Tehran on Saturday.

“There should be direct engagement in the battlefield and face-off with the enemy to prepare the (military) forces,” the top general added.

To that end, he noted, the Iranian Army and Air Defense forces need to boost their capabilities “at the borders and the fronts that the Islamic Revolution is active.”

This of course may be a response to the Saudi coalition continuing to import mercenaries from war torn Africa, specifically the Sudan.

Russia’s Sputnik news agency said on Friday that the Sudanese soldiers had been disembarked from a cargo plane in Yemen’s Aden Province.

Local sources said the forces had been transported in military vehicles from the Aden airport to a special camp for Sudanese soldiers in the Khor Maksar district of the Yemeni province.

Sudan has deployed around 1,000 troops to Yemen to help prop up the Saudi-led coalition.

In May, Sudanese Defense Minister Awad Bin Auf assured the coalition that Khartoum would be prepared to contribute more soldiers upon request.

Sudan has confirmed the death of 21 of its troops since the start of the war in March 2015.

Lets just hope if they do deploy, they do not end up crucified by ISIS like a recently departed Houthi commander.

When the Saudi coalition looses troops, it can simply import mercenaries from Africa or even South America to replenish their ranks. The Yemen army and rebels do not have that luxury, so it seems that Iran may be the one to provide those numbers soon.

As much as I am not a fan of Iran, good on them if they decide to take part in the war on Syria. Western Deep state will continuously keep backing "rebels" until Assad is gone and Syria is just like Libya. Iran does some horrible # but they know they are on the same list.
