Baku, Azerbaijan, Oct. 8
By Fatih Karimov – Trend:
Iranian Air Force successfully overhauled Mirage fighter's on-board oxygen generation system (OBOGS) which supplies oxygen to the flight crew.
The overhaul was carried out by experts of the Overhaul Center of the Islamic Republic of Iran Air Force (IRIAF) for the first time, the official website of the IRIAF reported.
Mirage is a French air-superiority fighter and attack aircraft designed and built by Dassault Aviation.
Iran's air force reportedly has at least 12 operational Mirage fighters.
Earlier in 2014, it was announced that the Islamic republic’s defense ministry has domestically produced a cruise missile system for its Mirage fighters.
Iranian media outlets report that Iran has made great achievements in its defense sector and attained self-sufficiency in producing essential military equipment and systems in recent years.
Since 1992, Iran has manufactured its own tanks, armored personnel carriers, missiles, radars, boats, submarines and fighter planes.
