Iran has produced a number of domestically-designed combat choppers named ‘Toufan’ (Hurricane) which are equipped with hi-tech weapons and anti-tank missiles, the defense ministry announced on Saturday.
“The combat chopper is equipped with advanced weapons systems, including anti-tank missiles, rocket-launcher and 20-mm artillery and enjoys high mobility,” Iranian Defense Minister Brigadier General Ahmad Vahidi said.
Vahidi also declared inauguration of the mass-production line of composite propellers for chopper 214 by the defense ministry’s affiliated industries.
Iran has recently made good progress in the air industry and has succeeded in gaining the technical know-how for producing stealth aircraft and drones.
Of course, no regime celebration would be complete without desecrating the American flag.
