For a first, Islamic Republic of Iran managed to build a fixed assimilator of Cobra Attack Helicopter and refurbish a helicopter hangar in an Air Force military base in Kerman, southeast of Iran.
Commander of IRI Army’s Air Force, Amir Ahadi told an inaugural ceremony for the military projects that the assimilator was built in two years at a cost a tenth of its foreign counterparts.
The assimilator has a large effect in reducing the scale of accidents and costs.
The refurbished helicopters hangar had an area of 5300 square meters and was abandoned for 30 years. It was redesigned and refurbished in 20 specialized sections at a cost of 10 billion rials ($11.1 m).
