Russia does not manufacture wide-body liners, if Iran buys MS-21 so this takes 2x longer then airbus.
Tu-204? how many per year now 1-2? can be max 8? so 100 in 15 years including developing prod capabilities?
They are just pragmatic. and nobody says they will not buy from Russia more nuclear PPs or even MS-21 one will be available.
I dont think Iran wants 100 wide body liners in a first place. They will most likely buy number of Airbus320Neo and some amount of wide bodys, they do not need 100 Airbus A330s, at least i dont see why would they.
They would not be interested in Tupolev for sure, here we are talking about Sukhoi 100, which can be produced in probably over 20 per year with no issues, maybe even more if orders existed. If they buy now Airbus, they will never again buy Russian liners simply due to logistics it would be too expencive and messy. They would have bought Russian liners if they had to before sanctions, now when they have ability to choose the wont.
Precisely. Russia screw it royally with Iran. It's still beyond me why Iran can't have indigenous nuclear arsenal. The haven't done any attacking wars the last 200 years in contrary they have been on defense countless times. They have the population of France and some 6 times greater area, they are the biggest country of the Shia world and it's one of the most historic, oldest and greatest nations on the planet. For Russia and China to go along with the jewish paranoia was inconceivable by me from the very beginning.
