Could it be just that the list of inducted aircrafts are not made public? If so, it may be a good move on IRIAF's part. How would you rate Saeqeh and Azarakh based on their public specifications, speaking of which I would love to know if you have access to any reliable, original Iranian source for such information.Khoda Hafez.
Above and Below: HESA's Iran-140 in the percieved AWACS role. Antonov An-140 military AEW version will be equipped with a rotodome and a yet to be determined surveillance radar. Iran has an urgent requirement for at least a dozen of such aircraft due to its diverse topography!
I would think that they may wait untill they can produce the An-148 and probably adopt that one for the AEW role.Username
Did that deal go through?
All of us have seen the reports about the deal. The problem is that we don't know which of many ventures that Iran gets involved with actually materialize on time.
