Good enough for the local powers, but at most, this force will only be able to dent the US, but it'll never defeat it.

Those aren't F-4 phantoms in that top picture. More like F-5B's(two seater trainers) or probably Iran's unlicensed modified version the Azarakhsh F-5E two seater which I believe they can make or mass produce.

The Iranian built Saeqeh, which means thunderbolt in Persian.

My bad, you're totally right - they are F5s or Azarakhsh. The fusilage is very similar to the F-4.

There is no licencing problem with the Azarakhsh, as far as I know becuase it is based upon, but different, from the F5 (unless you have other info), I have also read that it is also has features from the Tomcat and Phantom too - I think there is problems with the Hughey chopper as far as patents go, becuase it is pretty much an exact replication.

I don't have technical info, sorry.
The Azarakhsh & Saegheh are based on the F-5 but are bigger, faster, and more capable in general.
The Shafaq is based on the F-17 Cobra but supposedly with some stealth capability.
The missile technology for these aircraft is supposedly good.

Hellios!
 
This (below) I am sure is the Z-3, look at the turret, it resembles the M1 a lot more and also the tracks have skirting, something missing from the Z-1 which looks like a CC of the M-48.

Also the Z-1 has six bottom rollers, the Z-3 has 7.

Yes sorry licensing was a poor choice of words. The airframe its based off is a solid airframe(cheap as well which is a plus) and I'm sure the avionics have been beefed up to a somewhat modern standard. I remember reading Iran was going to purchase the Chinese super 7 aircraft as well but maybe not anymore because of development problems. How exactly are they keeping the F-14's flying? I've read analysts say Iran probably can only get 7 in the air yet a few years ago American E-3's spotted 14 flying around. I imagine they can fit the Moskit SS-N-22 Sunburn's(they probably have them though its not confirmed) on them which is the most lethal anti ship missile in the world today. Even the U.S. navy has no defense for it.

Another beautiful aircraft is the F-14 Tomcat.

I think it was a formation of 16 that was tracked by a US Awacs flying near the Iraqi border - They were kept airworthy through cannibalisation - the US service crews, upon evacuating Iran, sabotaged the whole F-14 fleet - so this depleted the fleet considerably before even a shot was fired.

The remainder that survived the war were kept flying through further cannibalisation at first - I think Iran must have gotten many spare parts through the black market especially since the US decommissioned its fleet, congress has recently taken drastic steps to halt such sales at US military car-boot-sales.

These (below) are the 3 main armaments of the Saegheh & Azarakhsh aircraft shown above.
 
The 2 grey salvos fire ground-attack rockets.
The blue missiles with white tips are medium-range air-to-air.
The small missiles with red tips are short-range air-to-air.

Below is a weaponized version of the BH7.
Looks like it's been fitted with 4 missile tubes.  Interesting...
