On 23 Julie 2018, the Iranian militar announced the Fakour radar-guidit air-tae-air missile wis now being mass produced. A ceremony attendit by Iranian defence meenister Amir Hatami wis held tae mark the announcement, during which at least sax missiles were displayed as well as the front ends of another five.

The Iranian media reportit that it haes a range of 150 km, a speed of Mach 5, and a guidance seestem that enables it tae hit a target independently of the launch aircraft’s radar.[12]

Although maist sources reportit that the Fakour-90 is a copy of the AIM-54, some analysts suggestit that the Fakour-90 wis actually an air-launched version of the MIM-23 Hawk missile with control surfaces frae the AIM-54.[13] The Fakour-90 wis awso criticised for haeving less range than the oreeginal AIM-54 missiles.[14]
