News from Iran!

Iran has begun industrial-scale production of its first domestically manufactured fighter jet, state-run television reported Monday, part of Tehran's efforts to become militarily self-sufficient.

The plane was first tested in 2006 and was derived from the reverse engineered components of U.S. combat aircraft.

"The airplane, Azarakhsh, was made by Iranian experts, and it has already reached the industrial production stage," the television quoted Iran's defense minister, Mostafa Mohammad Najjar, as saying.

Fox News mis-spelled target as 'fighter jet' and 'Azarakhsh'.
