BEIRUT, LEBANON (6:20 P.M.) – On Thursday morning, the Iranian Air Force received three locally-made Kawthar combat aircraft, as they continue to boost their aerial combat capabilities.

The Iranian Ministry of Defense released a video showing the three fighters flying during their handover ceremony, which was conducted in front of Defense Minister Amir Hatami and several other officials.

Hatami, said in a statement during the handover ceremony, that “America has competed that Iran, despite the continuous sanctions imposed on it for 40 years, has managed to reach a deterrent force that cannot be underestimated,” stressing that his country will not receive approval from “America and others with To develop and expand Iran’s defense capability. ”

The Iranian Air Force has been greatly affected by sanctions over years, which has prompted Tehran to domestically-produce their own aircraft.

However, with the upcoming expiration of the arms embargo, the Islamic Republic will be able to purchase high-tech warplanes that will further their aerial capabilities and strengthen their armed forces.
