LONDON, July 29 (IranMania) - Iran's Air Force chief says the country's military experts are capable of overhauling F-14 Tomcat fighter jets in a matter of 40 days, PressTV reported. 

Brigadier General Ahmad Miqani said Monday that Iran's Air Force has achieved self-sufficiency in the repair, maintenance and overhaul of its equipment.

He added that Iranian military experts are capable of overhauling F-5 two-seaters, F-14 Tomcat fighter jets, 707 and 747 aircrafts with only forty days of work.

"We have upgraded our air force fleet, state-of-the-art radar-systems, and rocket launchers over the past few years," Brig. Gen. Miqani said, adding that the country would continue its efforts to reach the peak of its military capability.

The Iranian Air Force chief announced that the country is mass producing different types of drones used in reconnaissance missions, pinpointing enemy bases, and carrying explosives.

Iran has recently started the production of superior 'Quick Reaction' tanks to increase the country's defense self-sufficiency.

Iran has also developed an electro-optical surveillance system that can act as a viable alternative when radars fail to cover a particular range.

Brig. Gen. Miqani described recent enemy threats as mere psychological warfare but added that Iran is fully prepared to deliver a devastating blow to the enemy in the event of an attack on the country.

US and Israel accuse Iran of pursuing a military nuclear program and threaten the Islamic Republic with the use of military action should the country continue uranium enrichment.

Tehran insists its nuclear program is aimed at generating electricity and is in line with the nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT).
