Although the Saeghe is basically just a rebuilt F5 I think it's a bit cool.
The aircraft industry has a long history of upgrades and Mod's the millions of different MIG21's version show that of nicely.
As for the Saeghe the twin tall and any electronic updates will help, but I wonder if it's a full rebuild as the fight hours must be high by now.
Not that 24 of them will worry the US or anyone else for that matter :-)

However... When you see them release items such as the F-313 it really makes you wonder.

Yeah.....Don't underestimate the Iranians. They've kept their F-14s and others flying, and upgraded them for decades with no access to spares. They're a lot smarter than people give them credit for.

LAst i heard these were all sub sonic fighter jets.
The Mig-21 and F-5 in ht post you quoted are both supersonic - I think you must have misread something.
