Salam all, I uploaded a new vlog on Iran's F-14 and the hunt for spare parts. Hope you like it and would appreciate any feedback. If you have suggestions for other topics, please let me know. Description: Iran Military Vlog episode 4 discusses the IRIAF's endeavor to keep its fleet of F-14As flying. Under the Shah, Iran became the only country in the world authorized to purchase the interceptor aircraft as a joint US-Iranian project to deter habitual incursions by the Soviet Union. Following the Islamic Revolution in 1979, all maintenance support for the Tomcat ended and a sanctions regime denied Iran all access to spare parts. Because the F-14's sensitive maintenance knowledge was denied to Iran as part of the initial deal, the Tomcat was expected to remain non-operational. This vlog problematizes that enduring myth.
Salam, There was a demonstration of so called military aircraft of Iran, named f-313 a few years ago. It was ridiculed by the west and it mostly looked like a mockup. http://theaviationist.com/2013/02/04/iran-plane-cannot-fly/ http://www.thewire.com/global/2013/02/iran-new-stealth-fighter-jet-fake/61781/ Is there any news on this? And what was the reason for this really, if it was a fake?
