Iran plans to build its own fighter

Iran intends to build its own fighters and training aircraft. Including it is about fighters "Saek" ("Thunder"), which can be refueled in the air, according to ARMS-TASS with reference to the agency "Fars".


Among other things, there are plans to modernize the French Mirage fighter (Mirage) that is in service with the Iranian Air Force. They will be equipped with new equipment, as well as weapons. “We put additional fuel tanks on Mirages, which will significantly increase the range of their flights, and also equip them with weapons and ammunition of our own production,” the agency quoted the representative of the Iranian Air Force, General Aziz Nasirzade, quoting. “We are striving to increase the production of combat aircraft in the country in order to eliminate the need for imports.”

At present, the Iranian Air Forces have, in the main, outdated French Mirage fighters, the American F-14 and F-5, F-7M, and the F-4 and F-5 bombers.

    Well done, what are they planning, but the question is, where will they take the engines for them in an embargo?
    According to the composition of the Iranian Air Force, in addition to the listed fighters, they also have the Mig-29.

        The Chinese themselves buy modern engines, and theirs at the level of 70-80x, for the 4+ generation they will not pull. Plus you need modern avionics.

      One model, and the aircraft do the whole production line. All Iranian innovations are made on old buildings. And the fact that in the system, are at the expense of cannibalization (they disassemble one fighter and repair three of these parts)

        I agree. For the production of combat aircraft, it is necessary to raise and modernize entire industries, create design schools, institutes, and this is not done in one day.

      I agree. Developing Iran’s own fighter will take 10-15 years, if at all, and threats are now here. And the Su-35 and MiG-35 are a great pair for updating the Iranian Air Force.

      Exactly. Their own development is clearly a weak copy of the F-5. I doubt very much that they will be able to create a really high-quality 4+ generation aircraft.

    Trepachi they are Iranians. One gets the feeling that they themselves and nuclear weapons will not be able to get, so they went to discharge. And according to statements, drones, ships, planes, etc. can produce the most modern. Just look at China: with enormous financial and technical resources, there are practically no truly Chinese military technology developments, all copies, or veiled copies. Iran does not have even half the capabilities of the Chinese, the conclusion is that even copies of modern products will not be able to produce, but there will be a lot of fuss.

    Iran has long had time to deal with a hypersonic missile. Against Israel, the stench is more than good, against the others too. A couple of dozen missiles with such a short approach time will not help any iron dome.

    To begin with, the picture for the article depicts Mirage-2000, which Iran does not have and most likely never will, since France will not violate the UN sanctions that prohibit the supply of weapons to Iran, by the way we too (thanks to Aifonchik). In 1991, 24 Iraqi Mirage F-1Es flew to Iran, of which 10 are currently in combat readiness.

    Secondly, Iran is already building its own planes:
    The first Iranian aircraft was Azarakhsh ("Lightning"), which entered testing in April 1997 and made its maiden flight in June of the same year. The aerodynamic layout of this aircraft is very close to the layout of the American lightweight fighter Northrop-Grumman F-5. According to Iranian sources, the fighter is likely to have two Russian-made RD-33 (2x8300 kgf) engines, which provide the ability to fly at a maximum speed corresponding to M = 1,5-1,8. The aircraft is equipped with the Russian Fazatron N019ME radar. Topaz "(an improved version of the MiG-29 fighter station, which has the ability to" work "on ground targets). The maximum combat load of the aircraft is 4400 kg. The delay in the release of the aircraft was mainly due to the lack of engines. In 2007 alone, a contract was signed for the supply of 50 RD-33 engines to Iran, serially produced by the Moscow Machine-Building Enterprise named after Chernyshev for MiG-29 aircraft, for an approximate amount of $ 150 million. On August 5, 2007, the serial Azarakhsh was demonstrated for the first time. Currently, the Iranian Air Force has about 30 Azarakhsh fighters.

      The second Iranian aircraft was the Saeqeh (Saegheh or Sa'qeh - "thunderclap"). It is a single-seat version of the Azarakhsh fighter. The main differences between the aircraft and its predecessor are the single-seat cockpit, modified tail section (ala "Hornet") and the armament range. Construction of the aircraft began in 2001, and the first Saeqeh-80 prototype took off in 2004. In 2007, the first serial interceptors were shown to the general public together with Azarakhsh at an air show held in August at the Mehrabad military base in Tehran. The first squadron of fighters was admitted to the Iranian Air Force in September 2009. The Iranian Air Force currently has 24 Saeqeh fighters.



      Another Iranian-designed aircraft was the Qaher 313, which, according to Iranians, is inconspicuous for radars, can land on short runways, and can also be “quickly and easily” repaired. How many such fighters are in service with the Iranian Air Force is unknown.


      Another Iranian-designed aircraft is the combat training Tazarv, which can also be used as a light attack aircraft. Tazarv was the first aircraft to be completely created by Iranian specialists. The type of power plant is not known, but it is likely that it consists of one turbojet engine created on the basis of General Electric J85-13 or J85-17 (used on F-5 fighters) with a remote afterburner. Composite materials are widely used to reduce weight in the design of the airframe. In total, it is planned to purchase for the Iranian Air Force 25 copies of the Tazarv UBS.

        Roman, not a single Stealth type aircraft is in service with Iran, these are just mockups. The first two named are made on the basis of the F-4 and F-5, in fact the Iranian modernization of these aircraft. Iran has no experience, not the production capacity to make something serious.

If the LADY had not gone on about the West at one time, the IRI would have long had a fleet of MiG 29smt as light fighters and SU 27 in the export version with a special abbreviation. And from -300 would be. The word / "would" interferes)) as usual, however))
