Iran Announces New Target Drones

September 6th, 2006 - 7:23 am

From the Hindustan Times:

Iran deployed its first locally-manufactured fighter bomber plane on Wednesday during large-scale military exercises, state-run television reported.

“The bomber Saegheh or lightening is similar to (the American) F-18 but more powerful. It was designed, optimised and improved by Iranian experts,” the report said.

The report said the Iranian air force had commissioned Saegheh after many test flights in the past year.

Cool. Brand-new targets are always more fun than boring old MIGs and Mirages.
