TEHRAN, Oct. 10 (Mehr News Agency) - Five domestically-made fighter jets dubbed Saeqeh, which means lightning, have been delivered to the country's Air Force fleet.
The fighter jets were tested during an air maneuver in Shahinshahr, Isfahan Province, on Saturday at the presence of the Army commander, defense minister, Air Force chief and a number of other Air Force commanders.
Saeqeh is a second generation of the Iranian Azarakhsh fighter. Saeqeh fighter planes tested successfully on September 20, 2007. Like the first generation it appears to be based on the U.S. F-5E.
The Saeqeh is a joint product of the Air Force and the Ministry of Defense.
