Iran has started building complex flight simulators, Deputy Chief of country's Air Force, Manouchehr Yazdani said, Fars reported.
"As an example, I can say that Iran already has a SU-24 flight simulator, and other projects in research phase," Yazdani noted.
The deputy chief also mentioned the F14 fighter jet simulator, noting that Iran started making it some 10 years ago, while it has already been successfully functioning for 3 years now.
Two years ago, Iran has put into service Cobra combat helicopter simulators, in a bid to raise the Iranian Air Force's training potential.
The simulator became operational at an air base in Isfahan Province, and it took two years to develop it.
All of Iran's flight simulators are built to help fighter jet pilots hone their skills, making it possible for them to rehearse tactical and combat flights.
Iran has unveiled numerous homemade military hardware, equipment and weaponry as part of the efforts to boost the country's defense capabilities.
