The Iranian army air force has began a military exercise near Iran's northwestern border with Turkey, Iranian state-run television said Thursday. Jet fighters, including American-made F-4s, F-5s and F-14s and Russian-made Sukhoi planes, are involved in the operation. The exercise in the northwestern town of Tabriz also includes the new domestically manufactured jet fighter called the Saegheh, or lightening. The broadcast said the exercise is aimed at boosting Iran's defense capabilities, upgrading the morale of the army and displaying the might of the country's air force.
