Iran’s New Aircraft Successfully Passes Wind Tunnel Test

TEHRAN (Tasnim) – Iranian experts have successfully tested a new domestically-made fighter aircraft, named 'Borhan', in the country’s national wind tunnel facility.

The Borhan fighter, which is also known as B92, has been completely manufactured by the Iranian military experts and has successfully passed wind tunnel tests.

Currently, 70 percent of the detail design of the fighter, which is an updated and optimized version of Shafaq fighter, has been completed and its mock-up has been also manufactured.

Some changes have been made in the design of the aircraft to boost its capabilities, compared to Shafaq fighter, including its vertical tail as well as the airfoil of its wings.

The Iranian military experts and technicians have in recent years made great headways in manufacturing a broad range of indigenous equipment, making the armed forces self-sufficient in the arms sphere.

Tehran has always assured other nations that its military might poses no threat to the regional countries, saying that the Islamic Republic’s defense doctrine is entirely based on deterrence.
