US intelligence suspects Iran of wanting to purchase weapons in Russia and China

The Iranian leadership is considering the possibility of acquiring a large consignment of weapons and military equipment from Russia or China, in particular fighters, tanks, anti-aircraft and coastal missile systems. This is stated in a report by the US Department of Defense Intelligence Agency (RUMO).


According to this report, next year Iran intends to try to acquire the C-400 anti-aircraft missile system, the Bastion coastal missile system, as well as Russian or Chinese fighters and tanks in Russia next year. The RUMO states that Iran cannot independently produce this equipment.

US intelligence claims that Iran is already holding consultations on the acquisition of weapons with both countries.

The supplier is considered mainly Russia, China - to a lesser extent. Iran may purchase Su-30 fighters, Yak-130 training aircraft and T-90 tanks from the Russian Federation. In addition, Tehran was interested in purchasing C-400 and Bastion complexes from Russia

- the report says.

According to the RUMO, the imposed US sanctions against Iran could lead to the fact that the latter may face a shortage of funds for the acquisition of these weapons and the development of their own.

Recall that Iran has a five-year arms embargo imposed by the UN Security Council on 20 July 2015 and an eight-year ban on the supply of ballistic missiles. Washington advocates the extension of both bans.

      In general, the combination, Bastion-S 400- Su 30, could finally repel the desire for direct aggression against Iran.

    In no case to extend ... Iran should have the technical capabilities to protect its sky from aggression from the United States and Israel.

      That's right. Given the clearly hostile steps on the part of the United States, Canada and other NATO countries towards Russia, in terms of the supply of lethal weapons to Ukraine, why not Russia answer the same? !!!

    For about 10 days, Iran has been sausage. About 300 dead, more than 1000 wounded. Several banks, administrative buildings and barracks of the IRGC were burned, half of the dead were security forces. All cities have strikes. I wonder why in VO this topic is not consecrated.

      The following year, UN restrictions on the sale of serious weapons to Iran end. Although the C400, like the C300, never got there. There are some agreements with Israel.

        The current restrictions do not apply to air defense systems, so Iran already bought the S-300PMU-2 in 2015 and received it the next year.

        There are 4 S-300PMU-2 divisions in Iran. But the delivery was delayed, in due time. And before that, in the 90s, Iran was driven in full. EMNIP we have only direct losses in the region of 4 billion dollars.

    "suspect Iran of a desire to purchase arms of Russia and China" if we discard all anti-American rhetoric and so on.
    US intelligence "discovered America": Iran is already an "adult boy" does not need the orders of other people's uncles. Naturally, if Iran is not capable of producing weapons, then it will try to buy it, but here excuse me and a no brainer that Iran currently has a "big" choice: Russia or China. All this can be calculated purely logically.
    The arms market is large there, as in every market there are large manufacturers, smaller ones. The Iranians are serious guys: they want reliable money for their money, and whoever can buy modern money from: USA, England, the Russian Federation and China, maybe 1-2 more traders. Even if you do not take the S-400, but for the rest of the positions weapons, the choice is not very large.

    Russia, which is under all imaginary sanctions, is least worth bothering to sell-not selling ... Bothering is only one thing - the sale of what type of weapons corresponds (does not harm) its interests in this region.

    "Suspicion" is one of the stages of work. And only after working on the data can we say whether the suspicion was confirmed or not. In this case, we are talking about "suspicion", since no one will sell military equipment to Iran until the beginning of 2021 (missiles until 2024). More precisely, the deadline is October 18, 2020 and October 18, 2023
