    Walter Hickey and Robert Johnson Iran's Military Weapons - Business Insider

    Iran's military has 545,000 active personnel and some of the most advanced military technology of anyone out there.

    The thing is, the United States gave them a lot of it.

    Read more: Iran's Military Weapons - Business Insider with many pictures and links to a most impressive arsenal.

    This sits one back on one's heels to see their arsenal.

    Just remember, a fighter jet is only as good as the pilot who operates it.

    Israel has some of the best pilots in the world.

    Israel is not invincible...Hezbollah made a meal of their Merkava tank.

    $5.5 billion to make these tanks and the Al quids Brigade can blow them sky-high with old 1970s RPG technology...:lol:

    The F-14? Really.:lol: When I left the military in 1989 they said the probability that any of those F-14's were still operational (then) was next to zero. People have to understand, that without a viable parts stream Western fighters like that become giant paper weights. I'm sure the same goes for any other American made aircraft acquired so long ago -under the Shah's regime.
