IRAN - Data written in blue are subject to confirmation.
Early aircrafts were serialled with a 5 digits system, 3-5xx. During 1976 this system was changed to
a 6 digits one 3-7xxx, presumably due to the large number of all types of aircrafts being on stock.
Yet another serial change was noticed in 2008, some serials starting with 3-73XX. Overhauled

aircrafts are reserialled in this range.
