Head of the Organization of Research and Self-Sufficiency Jihad of the Iranian Army Ground Force General Seyed Massoud Zawarehei, said that “They (Americans) are completely aware of the fact that their (attack) choppers are vulnerable, and for that reason they have protected some sensitive parts and some layers of these choppers. This, however, is not true for the body of these choppers. We, too, have focused on their weak points… All in all, choppers are surely vulnerable and cannot be coated by a layer of steel.” Zawarehei’s remarks came several days after Iran unveiled the Shaher 14.5 mm sniper rifle. The rifle is capable of targeting and destroying concrete strongholds, armored vehicles and choppers.
