|Feb 2 - Iran president unveils Qaher-313 indigenous f!ghter jet|
Iran has unveiled a new domestically-designed and developed f!ghter jet, which is said to be similar to a US-made warplane.
Qaher-313 (Conqueror-313) advanced military aircraft was put on display during a ceremony on Saturday in the presence of Commander of Iran’s Army Major General Ataollah Salehi, Defense Minister Brigadier General Ahmad Vahidi and Commander of the Islamic Republic of Iran Air Force (IRIAF) Brigadier General Ha##an Shah-Safi on the occasion of the Ten-Day Dawn celebrations commemorating the victory of 1979 Islamic Revolution.
Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, who addressed the unveiling ceremony, reiterated that Iran’s defense might did not serve purposes of “expansionism and aggression against other countries” and it was “deterrent” by nature.
Ahmadinejad also stated that the f!ghter jet had been completely designed and manufactured by Iranian experts.
Qaher-313 is said to be similar to the US-built F/A-18, although its appearance is similar to F-5E/F Tiger II.
The new single-seat b0mber has been manufactured based on state-of-the-art technologies and modern defense achievements.
In recent years, Iran has made great achievements in the defense sector and gained self-sufficiency in essential military hardware and defense systems.
Azarakhsh (Lightning) is Iran’s first domestically-manufactured combat jet.
Saeqeh (Thunderbolt) f!ghter jet is a follow-up aircraft, derived from Azarakhsh. Iran unveiled its first squadron of Saeqeh f!ghter b0mbers in an air show in September 2010.
Tehran has repeatedly a##ured other nations, especially regional neighbors, that its military might poses no threat to other countries, stating that its defense doctrine is merely based on deterrence.
