Default The 3 Iranian Tomcats

Let's just hope there's a change in attitude on both sides so that the last of these magnificent cats can keep flying for another 50 yrs

Nice collection. I suspect the blue camo is on somebody's to-do list. HM after all just did what appears to be a quite nice Iranian phantom.

I had that gemini blue one but got rid of it as witty tomcat just don't do it for me. Still, for a completist it's a must at this point

Perhaps a Manu will produce a 1/72 of the Iranian Kowsar fighter jet ....

i'm sure that if there was a massive change of ideology either way - that is, if tehran tilted substantially towards moscow OR they did the smart thing and realised that, even though the US committed a terrible evil in iran in 1953 and, the US and Iran really should be natural allies and Iran joined the western sphere, that would pretty much be the END of flying tomcats.

tomcats are just too expensive to operate. iran does so simply because they have nothing else. their russian ex-soviet stuff is old and tired. if iran was offered something like F16s or even old Su27s, it'd be goodbye tomcat.

on the plus side maybe they'd be offered for sale to museums and private collectors. For such a popular aircraft there are too few tomcats in museums, including essentially none in europe (perhaps in order to keep random spare parts away from iran).
