ImageTehran, Iran, Nov. 11 – Iran plans to build a new IRAN-140 aircraft capable of marine patrol and cargo transportation, state media reported on Monday.

The IRAN-140 is a double-engine turboprop aircraft which can fly almost 1,865 miles before re-fuelling and seats 52 people.
 
The head of Iran's Aerospatiale Industries Organization (AIO) Majid Hedayat said that the aircrafts would be equipped with technology enabling them to undertake marine patrol missions, Fars news agency said.
 
The first IRAN-140 aircraft was introduced by Iran in 2003. Five domestically-manufactured IRAN-140 planes were completed in October to increase the country’s transportation capacity and upgrade the Iranian air force, state media said.
