    This cannot be surely? These type systems are clearly on the embargo list as offensive weapon systems not defensive...
    Hope it's accurate but don't understand how it can be.

    The thing is both Trump and Hillary were planning to vacate the treaty anyway so...

    As in lift the sanctions and start selling to Iran? Israel will never stand for it.

    seriously f*ck Israel ... what the hell can they do about it if Russia did sell Iran SU-30s

    a lot more than you think/know....a side from that - if the sanctions remain in force it is moot point anyway.

    It is fairly obvious isn't it?

    Any western anti semetic sensible person knows that when a nuclear armed country that has not signed the non proliferation treaty complains that another country that has signed the non proliferation treaty and wants nuclear energy technology but there is no evidence they have any nuclear weapons programme cannot be allowed to trade freely and legally with its international partners.

    Obviously that nuclear armed countries that has violated the airspace of several neighbours and bombed even more and keeps the local non jewish population of their country like cattle must be listened too because they know all about illegal nuclear weapons production... they are the Tokra, the Vulcans, of Elves of western myth and legend...

    Su-27UB in iranian colors and with Iranian flag on the tail. It is Su-27UB as it have single front Wheele. Su-30 have twin front wheele. In the video you could see Iranian F-4 Phantoms in front of hangars. There is a good question, if it is only one on testings, or Russia sell them some retired Su-27 fighters and if they are modernized to Su-30KN standard.

    I'm afraid it's fake, i've seen it a few weeks ago and it was claimed to show "Su-30" in Iran. It's some kind of game footage superimposed on real footage of that iranian base.

    I don't know. Plane looks realistic, not graphic taken from games. Modern photo shops could do a lot, this is true, so fake is also possible. On the other hand we know, that Belarus retire their Su-27 fleet, some central Asian republics like Uzbekistan are selling their Flankers, so it is not impossible for Iran to buy few second hand Flankers in secret, which are not from Russia. Considering, that RuAF jets also were some time based in Iranian air base (Su-34 and Tu-22M3), Russia could deliver to Iran spare parts and equippment to support Su-27 fighters officially as equippment to support their Su-34 in operation over Syria. Situation in ME is very fragile and IRIAF need new fighters. If Iran bought them from belarus, than they got Su-27 modernized to Su-30KN standard. If they bought them from somewhere else, they could modernize them to that standard as well in Iran by the help from Belarus and Russia. Iran could buy them in China as well as China is retiring their basic Su-27 from first tranches, as they are replacing them with J-11. I don't think, Russia would be against their reselling to Iran.

    They'll need the most advanced versions, specially to combat any Israeli incursion since their hardware is packing - unlike the cheap crap America sells to others. Long range stand-off missiles will be a must, along with quality radars.

    I still think however the more on Air Defense that they spend the better. That is, more batteries of S-300s, Tors and Pansirs - LOTS!!!! They'll need to become a fortress of sorts to fend off saturation attacks. That along with their missile program should be a good deterrent.

    Ideally Iran would buy MIG-31 Interceptors as well - much more deadly for important operations. Sadly they'll have to make due with their Tomcats - great beasts but old as hell (who knows how many they have to really matter).

    The SME should be more than capable, if priority is Air-Defense then Pantsirs should be of primary concern, S-300s should be reserved for taken out launch platforms.

    It seems Iran already decided to buy Su-30SME. But bbefore contract Will be signed and the first produced fighter delivered, it will take years, specially because of sanction as they have to wait 5 years after nuclear deal was reached. In the mean time they could buy some second hand Su-27 Flankers and modernize them to Su-27SM or Su-30KN standard to get capable multirole fighter. With buying some Su-27 fighters, Iranian pilots will become familiar with Flankers and later their transition to new Su-30SME would be far easier.

    Russia offered Iran to buy Su-27SM3 fighters instead of Su-35 and Su-30SM?

    According to foreign experts on Babak Taghavee aircraft, which he said on his page on social networking site "Twitter", Russia has refused to Iran in the request to put a total of 24 Su-35 (18 units) and Su-30SM (6 units). Instead, Iran was asked to purchase an unknown number of Su-27SM3 fighters, which Iran refused.

    The reasons for the refusal to supply the Su-35 are the presence of sensitive technologies in the aircraft, the inability of Iran to pay for the supply with hard currency and the availability of UN sanctions.

    Also, according to his information, there is no contract for the supply of Chinese J-10 fighters to Iran (the estimated number of purchased aircraft is 24 units). China is in this issue under US pressure, but even if the contract is still concluded, the delivery of fighters will begin only in the 2020s. An interesting fact is that Iranian pilots of F-4 Phantom II fighters preferred Russian Su-30 twin-engine aircraft to Chinese single-engine J-10 fighters. Therefore, Iran initially chose the Su-30MK fighter, which was later replaced by Su-30SM.

    I read it and the tweets. It is speculation from some air force magazine from Iran. They apparently in negotiations for J-10 and FH-7. Which both don't come close to Su-27SM3 capabilities which leads me to believe it was BS.

    From the same source...


    #Russia Deputy PM, Dmitry Rogozin offered #Iran Defense Minister Gen. Dehqan sale of MiG-35 4++ MMRCA today, but #IRIAF is not interested

    While #Iran wants Su-35S, #Russia offers only Su-27SM3 and today MiG-35S/UB but equipped with Zhuk-ME radar. #IRIAF wants with Zhuk-AE radar

    I call BS because there would be no reason to say no over the Zhuk-AE since it will reduce cost for the T/R modules.

    Sorry, till I hear it from Russian news, I don't believe it. Cause, Su-35 is being exported anyway to countries like China so there is zero reason not to sell it to them.
