Iran Equips Fighter Jets with Anti-Missile Capability

The Islamic Republic of Iran Air Force (IRIAF) officially announced that
the country’s fighter jets have been equipped with anti-missile
capability and are now able to detect and intercept any kind of incoming
missiles.

The capability was demonstrated during the third phase of the
‘Fadaeeyan-e Harim-e Vellayat III’ air drills in Northwestern Iran.

The development is viewed as a great achievement for the Iranian weapons and defense industry.

During the military exercises, a missile fired by an F-5 fighter jet was
instantly detected and destroyed by a Mig-29 fighter jet.

The Islamic Republic of Iran Air Force (IRIAF) on Tuesday started the
main phase of its four-staged air drills with testing hi-tech bombs and
other advanced weapons systems, including various air-to-air and
air-to-ground missiles.

An array of fighter jets, fighter bombers, cargo and transportation
planes, including F-4, F-5, F-14, Sukhoi SU-24 fighter-bombers, Mig-29
and the logistic C-130 planes, and Saeqeh home-made fighter jets are
used in the drills.
