Iran unveils first home-made plane turbo-jet engine

Iranian army unveiled the country’s first homemade turbojet engine Aug. 21, during a ceremony attended by President Hassan Rouhani.

The engine dubbed Ouj is fully designed and manufactured by Iranian experts, the countyr’s Defense Minister Hossein Dehghan said in the ceremony, Iran’s state-run IRINN TV reported.

The engine’s operating altitude reaches 50,000 ft and can be installed in various aircrafts with maximum takeoff weight of 10 tons, Dehghan said.

He added that Iran is now among the eight countries that own the technology for designing and manufacturing these engines.

The Islamic Republic says that has made great achievements in its defense sector and attained self-sufficiency in producing essential military equipment and systems in recent years.

Iran has manufactured its own tanks, armored personnel carriers, missiles, radars, boats, submarines and fighter planes since 1992. Iran also unveiled its first domestically-manufactured long-range unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) in 2010.

    Brain is an expandable flesh that can only be broadened in open environment; free of foreign imperialistic adventures and self respectful believes within. When a person believes in his/her entities, he/she will perform much better and smarter. If he/she in other territories could do it so you as well. Englishman tried proving it otherwise. Thanks to the people who made it happen even the objective is far behind the advanced ones. Time is on the side of Easterners rather Westerners.
