Pro-Iranian sources reported 1000 drones to be received by Russia

Recently, Moscow and Tehran have significantly increased the level of their cooperation in various fields. Lebanese analyst Elijah Magier announced this on August 13 in a post on his website.

The expert drew attention to the fact that recently a Russian launch vehicle launched an Iranian satellite into Earth's orbit from the Baikonur Cosmodrome in Kazakhstan. The Iranians will now be able to update the list of enemy targets in the Middle East linked to the US and Israel.

The Russian Federation signed a contract with Iran for the purchase of 1000 UAVs after Tehran supplied several units and a simulator on which Russian officers trained: they successfully used the first samples in Ukraine. The move is considered unprecedented for a superpower that buys its drones from Iran.

- he noted.

According to him, the Russian Federation did not pay much attention to the development and production of UAVs, without making serious investments, although now it is difficult to imagine any army without drones. Moscow has focused on the development of hypersonic weapons and has achieved an impressive technological superiority over the United States in this matter. At the same time, the main interest of the Russian Federation is still focused on ICBMs with nuclear warheads.

In turn, Iran, despite 43 years of restrictions on the part of the Americans, has created missiles with a range of up to 2 km, which have been successfully used in Iraq and Syria. But Tehran simultaneously intensively developed the UAV industry and made huge progress in this direction. Iran has already used drones against militants on Syrian soil and has handed over drones to its allies in the Middle East.

According to well-informed sources in Iran, the purchase of drones by a superpower like Russia is an important indicator of the quality and development of the Iranian industry, which has succeeded in producing the most advanced UAVs, such as the Shahid 129, which can fly for longer than 24 hours. This is what attracted the Russian Federation, especially for use in the war in Ukraine

He summed up.

It should be noted that the Russian Federation and the Islamic Republic of Iran did not officially report anything about the deal regarding the UAV, however, as well as about the sale of Su-35 fighter jets by Moscow to Tehran from the “Egyptian” contract.

    This. Only one satellite! And if Iran is taken under a nuclear umbrella?! This will be a drive! This will bring a stream of fresh wind into relations between countries. Hurricane Katrina will seem a light breeze.

    most likely the number is correct once they decided to sell the Egyptian Su-35s to the Iranians, and that’s how it is by barter

      Yes, Iran will be able to produce 1000 fairly large UAVs in a five-year period, no faster. For the five-year period, they will also announce their own, here 100 seems to be true, and even then in a couple of years ... You should take an interest in the production of such complicated products, even in the USA, where not by hundreds, by tens of counts. per year ..

    We don’t have time, we can’t make drones ourselves, then the purchase (if not fake) is justified. As for the phrases about the superpower, we have not reached such a status. We will survive in the war with Ukraine, maybe we will be able to earn money, namely to earn such a status. By the way, are the facts of real combat applications of Iranian drones in general known?

      The main thing is that we do not refuse to develop and produce them.

    1000 drones? Where does this figure come from? This is roughly 1/10 of the fleet of vehicles of all types of US UAVs that have been accumulating them for 25 years. Iran is not the USA, with all due respect to their industry. A full-fledged military UAV is not the same as a drone with Avito.

      and who said that we are talking about exactly 1 Iranian Predators? most likely the bulk are light UAVs of the level of our Eleron or Orlan-000

        Still, the figure is sucked from the finger.
