    They make all the parts needed for even older F-4s to keep them in the air, & could do the same if it was worth having more modern F-16s in their AF (1 example is allegedly in their posession), as discussed earlier on another thread.

    Unfortunately, that's true. Zionist tentacles are all over DC, even other countries. Haley and Lindsay Graham are among the worst.

    Does the Russian Military fear the B-1?

    The B-1B is the equivalent of the Tu-22M3... does the US fear the Backfire?

    Does the US have a better air defence network that Russia does?

    They will of course respect it... but MiG-31s with R-37Ms will eat them for breakfast... the B-1s based in Norway will likely never get off the ground because of Iskander strikes destroying the runways.

    The sole fact that those F-14S are airborne, after those 50 years, is mindblowing.

    One of the things driving the replacement of the F-14 by the F-18 was that the F-14 was too expensive to operate and maintain... and that is the more sophisticated D model Tomcat... not the older A model Tomcat the Iranians have.

    Irans ability to keep those aircraft flying is astounding... a country like Germany or the UK probably couldn't do it without US assistance, but Iran... under western sanctions managed to keep them working is something you would put not just put on your CV... you would put it on sheets of paper and put it on walls and telephone poles near where you live.

    They make all the parts needed for even older F-4s to keep them in the air, & could do the same if it was worth having more modern F-16s in their AF (1 example is allegedly in their posession), as discussed earlier on another thread.

    I am biased but I would like to see them get the production licence to make MiG-35s and MiG-29Ms... and for them to then produce those aircraft for the countries that the US has screwed over with F-16s like Turkey and Venezuela and Pakistan... and eventually when it wakes up from the American nightmare, Argentina.

    That new guy they have seems to be a Zelensky Trump type guy... you vote them in because they talk peace and better relations with the Russians and ending wars and bringing US soldiers home from places America does not need to bleed in, and then when they get into office it is sanctions on Russia and more wars...

    The explosion was caused by a storm and heavy Rain  , causing explosion : The Tehran mayor has banned Rain from falling in sensitive areas   to protect pipelines .

    Shocked

    Small UAV or terrorist ( small terrorist ) can not destroy this . So cover the pipes with soil . Missiles with big warheads more easily intercepted by AD . Why not attack the refinery ? Perhaps better defences and AD ? UAV attack should have been attempted , even with AD . But it was not .......because it was done by placing explosives by hand .

    Cool
