Iran launches air-to-air missile production line – Def. Min

Iran announced Monday the launch of a production line of a local medium-range air-to-air missile, which was successfully tested last year.

Defense Minister Amir Hatami was quoted by official media as saying Fakoor was designed and manufactured in accordance with state-of-art technology.

“Many countries just import the technology but cannot improve it to make new version of the missile according to their needs, but Iran as a missile producer has the ability to do so,” he said.

He said Iranian experts succeeded in launching the production line despite sanctions.

All fighter jets are capable of carrying Fakoor missile, he noted.
