Iran has produced more than 800 home-made simulators gaining self-sufficiency in manufacturing simulators, a senior Iranian commander has said.

Iranian Army Lieutenant Commander General Mohammad Hassan Baqeri said the army had equipped more than 50 ground force units with 800 home-made simulators.

Iranian Army airborne commander General Kiomarth Ahadi said in February that all the airborne bases of the army were equipped with flight training simulator systems.

He also said well-equipped and non-static simulators for other types of choppers were also being produced.

The simulators were imported from the foreign countries, including the US and the UK, before the first mobile helicopter simulator for chopper 206 was built by Iran in 2007, according to The Fars News Agency.
