I doubt it, i just don't see how a few economic deals are going to resolve the sour relation with Iran with respects to what happened too there S-300 contract, much less locally produced airframes.GarryB wrote:Russia and Iran have signed a few economic deals recently and have clearly become closer partners.
The Potential for sales of sophisticated aircraft is interesting... I would suspect... based on the little I know about Iran... that any Flanker deal might involve local production of perhaps airframes and some parts.
Maybe if Russia sent a few Antey-2500s as gifts, and then demonstrate them on the Israelis who will attempt too destroy them
Wouldn't it be more beneficial, if Sukhoi helped Iran with joint development of there (Iran) Stealth fighter??Perhaps Sukhoi and Iran might get together and develop a new Flanker that perhaps is a mix of the fighter and the strike aircraft (Su-35/Su-34) but also adds interceptor performance (MiG-31) to the mix...
