Iran has restored a Sukhoi Su-24 attack aircraft after years of it being grounded at an airbase in Shiraz, located in southern region of Iran.
On January 14, Iranian experts and specialized technicians of the overhaul facility of Shahid Doran Airbase in Shiraz, succeeded in overhauling the grounded aircraft after spending over 35,000 manpower, working hours and constant efforts, Mehr news agency reported Sunday.
The aircraft has now joined the operational fleet of the Armys Air Force after having passed all the necessary flight, combat and landing tests, the report said.
In 1990, the regime received twenty Su-24 Fencer strike aircraft, which were later grounded for technical issues. Iranian Air Force experts reportedly overhauled several Sukhoi Su-24 fighter jets for the first time in 2014.
