Iranian Defense Ministry Produces New Combat Choppers


Iran has produced a number of domestically-designed combat choppers named 'Toufan' (Hurricane) which are equipped with hi-tech weapons and anti-tank missiles, the defense ministry announced on Saturday.

"The combat chopper is equipped with advanced weapons systems, including anti-tank missiles, rocket-launcher and 20-mm artillery and enjoys high mobility," Iranian Defense Minister Brigadier General Ahmad Vahidi said.

Vahidi also declared inauguration of the mass-production line of composite propellers for chopper 214 by the defense ministry’s affiliated industries.

Iran has recently made good progress in the air industry and has succeeded in gaining the technical know-how for producing stealth aircraft and drones.

What's Obama going to do to our troops to level the playing field on this one.

Who knows where we are now. But the original intent was to have an ally in the heart of the middle east.

With the current Regime, who knows where this will end up. for all we know Iraq may be annexed by Iran, then there will be two dictators to appease.
