Saegheh Flies Over Tehran

Two of Iran’s new homemade jet fighters, “Saegheh” (Thunderbolt), were flown on test flights over Tehran today. Iranian defense officials say that Saegheh is similar to the American F-18 fighter plane but “more powerful.”

The planes will officially join the air force fleet on Saturday 22 September, Iran’s “Army Day.”
