Iran's Air Force chief says the Islamic Republic has successfully launched the production line of radar-evading 'stealth' fighter jets.
Brigadier General Ahmad Miqani said Tuesday that the new jets would significantly enhance the Air Force's combat and defensive capabilities.
Iran has recently started manufacturing superior 'Quick Reaction' tanks to increase its defense self-sufficiency.
Iran has also developed an electro-optical surveillance system that acts as a viable alternative when radars fail to cover a particular range.
"We have upgraded our air force fleet, radar-systems, and missile systems over the past few years and we are now ready to counter any threat," Brig. Gen. Miqani continued.
He added that the Iranian Air Force would prove its dominance by immediately crushing anyone who dares to try and penetrate Iran's airspace.
Washington and Tel Aviv accuse Tehran of pursuing a military nuclear program and threaten Iran with the use of military force if the Islamic Republic continues with its nuclear enrichment program.
Tehran insists its nuclear program is aimed at generating electricity and is in line with the nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT).
The most recent UN nuclear watchdog report concluded that there is no link between the use of nuclear material and the 'alleged studies' of weaponization attributed to Iran by Western countries.
