  1. Iranian Military Structure Iran Has 3 Kind of Armed forces, fighting with 3 different strategies, 3 different structure which makes hard for enemy to design an attack strategy! Iran's military structure is broken up into three branches, with the Ayatollah "˜Ali Khamene'i as the commander-in-chief: Islamic Republic of Iran Army (the Artesh), Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) and the Basij Resistance Force.[vi] In 1992, Iran established a new single office for the Joint Chiefs of Staff, the General Command of the Armed Forces Joint Staffs, which effectively placed the Artesh and the IRGC under common command.[vii] Altogether, the forces total approximately 545,000 active personnel and 350,000 reserve personnel. The Iranian armed forces consist of the Islamic Republic of Iran Army, Islamic Republic of Iran Navy,[18] Islamic Republic of Iran Air Force, and the Islamic Republic of Iran Air Defense Force. The regular armed forces have an estimated 425,000 personnel: the Islamic Republic of Iran Army, 350,000 personnel; the Islamic Republic of Iran Navy, 18,000 personnel, and the Islamic Republic of Iran Air Force, 52,000 airmen.[5] The Islamic Republic of Iran Air Defense Force is a branch split off from the IRIAF.[19] The Army of the Guardians of the Islamic Revolution, or Revolutionary Guards, has an estimated 120,000 personnel in five branches: Its own Navy,[18] Aerospace Force, and Ground Forces; and the Quds Force (special forces).[5] The Basij is a paramilitary volunteer force controlled by the Islamic Revolutionary Guards. Its membership is a matter of controversy. Iranian sources claim a membership of 12.6 million, including women, of which perhaps 3 million are combat capable. There are a claimed 2,500 battalions of which some are composed of full-time personnel.[20] GlobalSecurity.org quotes a 2005 study by the Center for Strategic and International Studies estimating 90,000 active-duty full-time uniformed members, 300,000 reservists, and a total of 11 million men that can be mobilised if need be .[21] Main article: Cyberwarfare in Iran It has been reported that Iran is one of the five countries that has a cyber-army capable of conducting cyber-warfare operations. It has also been reported that Iran has immensely increased its cyberwarfarecapability since the post presidential election un-rest.[22][23][24][25][26] Furthermore, China has accused the United States of having initiated a cyber war against Iran, through websites such as Twitter andYouTube and employing a hacker brigade for the purpose of fomenting unrest in Iran.[27][28] It has also been reported in early 2010, that two new garrisons for cyberwarfare have been established at Zanjan andIsfahan.[29]
