Iran PressIran news: 'Refueler,' or airplane fueler, is a tanker that is used to refuel all kinds of airplanes.

Salimi stated that Iran is one of the four countries in the world that has achieved the technology of producing airport refuelers, adding that only the U.S., England, and Germany produce the airport refuelers, with India joining the countries enjoying the so-called technology.
