Arab sources report that Iran will soon receive Russian Su-35s


On August 5, Arabic-language information resources disseminated information that during the visit of Russian President Vladimir Putin to Iran on July 19, a contract was signed for the purchase of 18 units of Russian-made Su-35 multipurpose super-maneuverable fighters for the Iranian Air Force. We are talking about aircraft that were previously built for the Egyptian Air Force at the aircraft factory. Yu.A. Gagarin (KnAAZ) in the Far East of the Russian Federation, but for certain reasons Cairo refused to take them.


It should be noted that officials in Russia and Iran have not yet confirmed or denied this information; don't comment at all. At the same time, the Arab media and social networks are convinced that Iran will receive the mentioned fighters from the Russian Federation in the near future.

Arab sources report that Iran will soon receive Russian Su-35s

Before that, on August 3, the American "Institute for the Study of War" (ISW), citing its informed sources, published data that Iranian Drones in the amount of 46 units, but without specifying the characteristics of these UAVs, are already in Russia. Moreover, Tehran simultaneously sent its pilots and technicians to train the use and maintenance of the Su-35, which Iran will receive from Russia in 2022.

Note that the possible sale of these aircraft to Iran started talking even at the end of 2021. Now such a deal would be extremely beneficial for Tehran, as Tel Aviv threatens to bomb important Iranian facilities. The Israel Defense Forces have upgraded their F-35I Adir fighters, and now they can fly over to Iran without aerial refueling. But the Iranian Air Force's existing aircraft cannot withstand the improved F-35s. The only fighter that is currently on sale on the world market that can fight the F-35 is the Russian Su-35, which is confirmed by American and Israeli experts.

    And what's wrong? Absolutely everything is fine. Stable. And without misunderstandings, like with Turkey. In the supply of weapons. I mean. In any case, visually. And so purely for the people! Oh, hunting even give nuclear charges to Iran with delivery vehicles to Washington! yes laughing

    Israel's provocation is not ruled out. He can easily try to destroy the delivered fighters, which is called "on the ground", during their development and deployment

      Aircraft can be placed at a Russian base in Armenia, since the border is nearby, while improving the skills of Iranian pilots. But, I think that Russian crews will be able to resist the Israeli f35, more qualitatively. It looks like a new vietnam. If Iranian air defense is able to withstand the f35, as in Ukraine the air defense is opposed to Turkish UAVs, then the fear of losing the f35 sales market will do its job. The strategic tactics are clear. It's up to the military. Something tells me that America is bluffing with q35.

    I doubt the authenticity of this news. In 2022, Russia will produce aircraft only for itself in order to prevent conflicts from NATO. How can she supply Su-35 to Iran?

    All this is very similar to the truth and quite logical. I am surprised why the S-400 air defense systems are not supplied to Iran. They probably hope that Israel's position on Russia can be changed step by step.

    The original RQ-170 costs $6m x46 units=$280m and the SU-35 costs $18x104,66m=$1,9bn

    Key phrase:

    We are talking about aircraft that were previously built for the Egyptian Air Force at the aircraft factory. Yu.A. Gagarin (KnAAZ) in the Far East of the Russian Federation, but for certain reasons Cairo refused to take them.

    For export, several others are supplied than in the Russian Aerospace Forces. That is why it is necessary to attach the unsold ones, and Iran is just right ... Yes, and the receipt of Iranian attack UAVs is very timely (only why domestic attack UAVs are not visible, only promises have been heard for years) ...
