More than 20 Su-35 fighter jets awaiting delivery to Iran

More than 20 Russian multi-role Su-35 fighters are waiting for the transfer of the Iranian Air Force. A satellite image of the territory of the Komsomolsk-on-Amur Aviation Plant them. Yu.A. Gagarin (KnAAZ), which shows 21 aircraft of this model.

It should be noted that all of them were produced under a contract for the Egyptian Air Force, but Cairo was forced to abandon them under pressure from the West. After the demarche of the Egyptians, the Iranians showed interest in acquiring the Su-35, since it is the only fighter on the world arms market that can withstand the American F-35 Lightning II and the Israeli F-35I Adir in the sky. Tehran is developing its nuclear program and military-industrial complex, and is determined not to allow the destruction of its facilities.

According to American, Arab, British and Israeli intelligence, information and analytical resources, Iranian pilots and equipment are already in Russia, where they are undergoing appropriate training in the operation of the Su-35. It was reported that Moscow would allegedly transfer the mentioned aircraft to Tehran as early as 2022, but earlier was called number of 18 units. Therefore, it is possible that the total number of high-class fighters sold may still grow.

    Great news, further acceptance into the CSTO. After the wars with Russia, Persia calmed down. Already 200 years in friendship with Russia, can not be compared with Turkey, which at every opportunity is ready to spoil Russia.

    It is high time for Iran to upgrade its Air Force, the main thing is not to let the Jews destroy these fighters on the ground, and of course it’s not enough, at least a hundred of these “birds” are needed to adequately rebuff the Israeli Air Force

      You are right, Israel will make every effort to prevent Iran from getting these Su-35s. We will see in practice what the Israeli lobby in the Russian Federation is doing regarding the fate of these aircraft ... I hope with the NVO and the Israeli counter-march against the Russian Federation, it will finally improve the policy of the Russian Federation towards hostile Israel ...

    But the RF Ministry of Defense does not need them? Has the contract been signed? Or most likely at the head of the country are sold. Wars like this are not won.

    The matter remains small - to build such hangars for the Persians so that not a single Zionist and democratic bomb (rocket) gets them into the dungeon. I hope we will take money for airplanes (of course, in rubles), and not for carpets or galoshes.
