Rare behind the scenes video of Iranian Air Force Sukhoi Su-24 Fencer operations

The following interesting video shows daily operations at the Islamic Republic of Iran Air Force Sukhoi Su-24 Fencer, belonging to the 72nd Bomber Squadron at TAB-7 in Shiraz.

Mission briefing, dress rooms, flying clothing as well as a taxi ride by a journalist in the Fencer (this explains why he doesn’t wear a flight suit). Also cockpit images during buddy refueling and air-to-air footage of a KH-29L (AS-14 “Kedge” in NATO designation) air-to-surface laser-guided missile test fire.

A rare and quite long (unfortunately in original language) “behind the scenes” of one of the most interesting Iranian combat planes.
