    JF-17 fighter jet of Pakistan Air Force shoots down Iran-made spy drone

    [​IMG]

    Pakistan Air Force shot down an Iranian spy drone flying in Panjgur airspace.

    The incident is first of its kind in the history of two Islamic countries, which share a 900-km-long porous border.

    A JF-17 fighter jet shot down a spy drone belonging to the Iranian regime. Pakistan Defence, a military analysis group, reported, “Air Force JF-17 Thunder fighter intercepted an armed Government of Iran drone 49km inside Pakistan & shot it down for showing hostile intent.”

    Interesting. Woodcomp is a Czech propeller company. Rotax engines are used all over the world, and popular in many UAVs (including US, Russian, and Pakistani models)

    unlikely that the UAV would belong to Iran. Entries on the body are not related to Iran.

    That really doesn't mean much unless Iran is in the habit of scraping the labels off all the foreign things they receive. Pop open the cowlings on my helicopter and you'll find labels from a dozen different countries on various parts and pieces.

    Iran now produces all kinds of wankel engines, we do not need to enter them.

    "Two Iranian men charged with smuggling dozens of German-made engines capable of powering drones into Iran by declaring them as jet ski engines went on trial at a Frankfurt court on Monday."

    "Tom Cooper, an aviation analyst who has written extensively about Iran’s air forces, says his sources in Iran generally aren’t fazed by the impact of sanctions targeting the UAV industry. “Everything necessary we do not manufacture at home is easily available by means of arms brokers and middlemen, just three times more expensive than normal,” Cooper says one of his sources told him."

    That they tried copying some engines and produce some doesn't magically mean that they do not import any. Countries with far more technologically advanced engineering and manufacturing sectors still import things.

    You can don't accept the reality and also think that Iran is a backward country. It's not mind.

    Maybe some equipment will not be produced due to cost reduction in Iran [Limited purchase market]. But because of the sanctions, we are forced to reinvent the wheel.

    Being 'backward' is utterly and undeniably irrelevant to the point. India imports parts, Japan imports parts, the US imports parts, the PRC imports parts...

    Our situation varies greatly with other countries. No one gives us anything because of various military sanctions.
    We even need an OFAC license to purchase a passenger plane.
