Iranian Experts Overhaul Mirage Fighter Jets' OBOGS System.
TEHRAN (FNA)- Iranian Air Force experts for the first time overhauled a Mirage fighter jet's on-board oxygen generation system (OBOGS).
The OBOGS system is one of the sensitive sections of Mirage fighters which adjusts the oxygen level of the pilot's cockpit in different altitudes.
The project was implemented for the first time by the Iranian Air Force's experts.
Back in 2013, the Iranian experts at Shahid Nasser Habibi air base in Northeastern Iran had managed to overhaul two Mirage F-1 fighter jets, the Air Force announced on Sunday.
The overhauling operations of the two fighter jets took 45,000 man/hours of work.
The two aircraft joined the Iranian Air Force fleet after making their maiden flights.
Also, in 2014, Iran unveiled and launched its first home-made Mirage fighter jet simulator in a ceremony attended by Commander of the Islamic Republic of Iran Air Force (IRIAF) Brigadier General Hassan Shahsafi.
The Mirage simulator system was designed and built by Iranian engineers and all its parts have been produced domestically.
Military officials said the machine enjoys the capability to simulate flights in different weather conditions.
The officials also said that the simulator has been built to enhance pilots' preciseness and skills as well as flight safety and reduce the costs.
