Well, before the revolution of 1979, Iran had about 230, and during the war with Iraq, only about 20 of them were totally destroyed!
Iran has also been making the Cobras since 1988 in low numbers, and has been upgrading the existing fleet with new fire control systems and other upgrades!

It’s difficult to give an accurate figure of Iran's Cobra numbers, but it would be more than 200!

LOL HBN, I don't know how much each of them cost, but let me give you an interesting comparison between Iranian made weapons to that of other countries; A German made MP5 sub machine gun costs $900, a Turkish made MP5 also costs $900, a Pakistani made MP5 costs $550, but an Iranian made MP5 submachine gun will cost you $300, with minimum of fuss!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Generally speaking, Iranian made weapons are 1/3 of the price of western equivalents!!

Also, yes, the Iranian alphabet is very almost identical to the Arabic Alphabet, with minor differences, just like the English text follows the Roman alphabet!

Well, the main parts of the Cobra that have been upgraded are the fire control system, which have been upgraded with multi function displays, which makes the job of the pilot easier, and also the shape of the cockpit has been changed to that of the Super cobra!
All the newly built cobras are made with these specifications, and the old cobras are also being upgraded with the same things!
