The Iran-Russia deal for Tehran‘s order of advanced Russian Su-35 fighter jets is completed.
The threat of war between Israel and Iran forced Tehran to sign a contract with Russia for the supply of a large batch of Su-35 fighters.
These fighters will allow the Iranian Air Force to pose a significant threat against Israeli fighters, including the F-35 (according to the Russians).
Iran intends to take delivery of three dozen of these fighter jets, deliveries of which may start as early as this month.
“Moscow can repair and modernise 20 MiG-29 fighters and 25 Su-24MK frontline bombers, which are already in service with the Iranian Air Force.
In addition, it is possible to sell the Islamic Republic modern S-400 anti-aircraft missile systems, which will be able to provide effective air defence of the country‘s nuclear facilities.
The estimated value of the contract is $10 billion. According to some sources, part of the payment for the Su-35 will be crude oil and Russia is also interested in Iranian drones. ” – said Iranian journalist Khayal Muazzin.
Iran desperately needs Russian high-tech weapons in the midst of an imminent Israeli attack.
