    Tehran, Feb 4 (IANS) Iran’s new stealth fighter will make its maiden test flight by the end of summer 2009, the commander of the Iranian Air Force has said.

    Hassan Shah-Safi told reporters on the sidelines of a conference on military industrial research here that military experts are now working on the project, Mehr News reported.

    He said the defence ministry will produce as many aircraft as needed.

    He pointed out that Iran is currently attempting to increase the range of the air-to-air heat-seeking missile it has successfully tested.

    Iran expands air fleet with new fighters

    A senior Iranian defense official says the country has successfully produced a new generation of Saeqeh (Thunderbolt) fighter jets.

    The General Manager of Iran's Aviation Industry Organization in the Defense Ministry, Majid Hedayat, said Wednesday that the organization would soon launch a mass production line for the new fighter jets.

    "The new generation of Saeqeh fighters are equipped with additional facilities and capabilities," Fars News Agency quoted Hedayat as saying.

    Iran test flied the first generation of the home-manufactured 'Saeqeh' fighter jets in September 2007.

    Hedayat added that Iranian experts have also produced other military planes, which would later join the Air Force squadron for naval patrolling purposes.

    The report of Iran's military enhancement comes as earlier in July the country's Air Force chief, Brigadier General Ahmad Miqani, announced that the Islamic Republic had produced radar-evading 'stealth' fighter jets.

    In response to Israeli war rhetoric, Iran has launched a campaign for military self-sufficiency.

    In preparation for a possible Israeli attack, the Islamic Republic has revamped its fighter jet fleet to fly distances of 3,000 kilometers without refueling.

    The upgrade would allow Iranian aircraft to fly to Israel and back without the need to refuel.

    The Iranian Armed Forces have also been holding military exercises on a regular basis after Israel conducted an air maneuver over the Eastern Mediterranean and Greece in early June, which according to Pentagon officials, appeared to be a rehearsal for a potential bombing attack on Iranian nuclear facilities.

    But I gotta ask - how is Bush pulling the media strings now that he's out of office? Does his web of fear-mongering extend out of Crawford, Texas?
