Iran manages C-130 Overhauls
The overhauling operations of the plane took 23,000 man/hours of work.
The C-130 plane joined the Iranian Air Force fleet after making its maiden flight.
The Iranian Air Force announced in August that the Iranian experts managed to overhaul two mirage F-1 fighter jets.
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.
Iran also announced in June that its experts are overhauling different types of aircraft, including Mig-29 and F-5 fighter jet.
In August 2012, a Mig-29 fighter jet of the Iranian Army conducted its test flight successfully after being overhauled by local experts.
The aircraft which was down for 12 years could experience its first flight after it was overhauled, which took 21,000 man/hour of work.
The Iranian experts spent 24 months to overhaul the strategic fighter jet and mounted three types of modern electronic systems onto the aircraft in a bid to increase its technical and backup capabilities.
