TEHRAN (FNA)- Iranian Air Force Commander Brigadier General Hassan Shah Safi underlined the need for long-term planning in the field of parts manufacturing and indigenizing production of the parts and components needed for his force’s fighter jets and aircraft.
“We should pay heed to (airplane) parts manufacturing more than before by adopting long-term planning in the field and looking at the far-away horizons,” Brigadier General Shah Safi said.
“We have fully supplied all the parts needed by the air force through expediting a parts manufacturing movement, cooperation with defense ministry’s aviation industries organization in manufacturing testers and utilizing veterans’ experiences,” he added.
In recent years, Iran has made great achievements in the defense sector and gained self-sufficiency in manufacturing essential military hardware and defense systems.
Yet, Iranian officials have always stressed that the country’s military and arms programs serve defensive purposes and should not be perceived as a threat to any other country.
