TEHRAN (Tasnim) – Iran unveiled its first domestically-manufactured simulator system for Mirage fighter jets in a ceremony attended by Iranian Air Force Commander Brigadier General Hassan Shahsafi.
The entire components of Mirage simulator system have been designed and produced by the Iranian engineers and experts.
The system has the capability to simulate flights in different weather conditions. The simulator has been built to increase the Air Force pilots’ accuracy and skills, improve flight safety standards and cut the costs.
In the meantime, a domestically-made system for firing light weapons, dubbed Fateh 12 (Conqueror 12), was also unveiled during the ceremony. The system has been designed and manufactured by the local experts from Iran’s Air Force and the Ministry of Defense.
Fateh 12 simulates real shooting conditions with four types of light firearms, including Heckler & Koch G3 assault rifle, AK-47 (Kalashnikov) machine gun, Rocket-Propelled Grenades (RPGs) and pistols.
In recent years, Iran has made great achievements in its defense sector and has attained self-sufficiency in producing essential military equipment and systems.
