Comment: This article overstates Iran's capabilities.

(See in situ)

This article overstates Iran's capabilities.

The plane is basically a modified F-5 fighter with some anti-radar features. It's pretty much a light fighter with some ground attack ability and the technology for this type of plane was obsolete in the early-1970's.

The real message is that Iran can arm itself on its own without foreign weapons but I doubt the U.S. Air Force is very concerned.
