Modernized AH-1 in Iran
« on: March 04, 2018, 12:47:32 PM »
Upgraded in Iran helicopter AH-1J program Toufan-2 with rocket Shafagh.

The air-surface missile Shafagh was created on the basis of the anti-aircraft missile Shahab Thaqeb (Iranian copy of the missiles for the Chinese SAM FM-80\HQ-7) with the installation of a new guidance system, etc.
