S-400 and other weapons: how Russia can help Iran

100

The other day, the representative of the Russian Foreign Ministry said that after the lifting of the five-year arms embargo of the UN Security Council, negotiations could begin on the supply of arms and military equipment to Iran. Although the United States has already announced its intention to extend the embargo. But what is Russian weapon would help the Iranian authorities protect the country from numerous risks?


Air defense and coastal defense


One of the most important areas in the military sphere that Iran needs to develop in order to protect itself as much as possible is air defense and missile defense. Iran now has several important problems in the field of air defense.

Firstly, a significant part of the air defense system was purchased from various suppliers during the Cold War and is now simply outdated. In the S-200 divisions of 6 launchers in the ranks of 1-2.

Secondly, Iran has few modern air defense systems. So, the most powerful are the S-300PMU-2 “Favorite”. In 2016, Iran purchased 4 divisions of these air defense systems from Russia. But to protect with their help the entire rather large territory of the country is impossible. Therefore, the S-300PMU-2 air defense system and the Tor-M1 air defense system are used to cover nuclear facilities.

Thirdly, Iranian-made air defense systems are not yet produced in sufficient quantities. These problems, of course, do not detract from the fact that Iran has one of the most developed air defense systems not only in the Middle East, but also in the world. But in any case, it is necessary to modernize and develop this system.


Thus, Iran needs modern anti-aircraft missile systems of the S-400 level. Moreover, Russia delivered the S-400 to Iran’s long-standing rival, Turkey. It’s another matter that Israel will very seriously object to the supply of S-400 to Iran, with which Moscow also has good relations. But in Tehran, of course, in any case they will want to acquire the S-400.

Coastal defense is another important area for Iran. The fact is that the United States and its allies, including Saudi Arabia, threaten Iran, primarily from the south - from the Persian Gulf. In the event of a conflict, the enemy will begin to strike on the Iranian coast.

Now Iran, which does not have modern means of coastal defense, is protecting its sea borders with the help of a large number of sea mines. But the power of the Iranian coastal defense can increase significantly if the country, after the embargo is completed, manages to acquire Russian Bastion coastal missile systems that will help cover the Iranian coast.

Fleet: which planes will help Iran


According to many military experts, Iran will certainly pay attention to the modernization of its air force’s fleet. After all, the Air Force is one of the weaknesses in the defense system of the Islamic republic. This circumstance is connected, first of all, with the obsolescence of aircraft.

If we talk about airplanes that could significantly change the face of the modern Iranian Air Force, then this is, of course, the 4 ++ MiG-35 generation fighter, the Su-30SM heavy fighter, and the Su-57 fighter in its export version. However, if we talk about the acquisition of the Su-57, then everything will rest, of course, on the financial issue.

As for the Su-30SM or Su-35, if such aircraft appear in the Iranian Air Force, the latter will gain advantages over almost all other countries in the region, since the aircraft in many respects surpasses the fighters in service with potential opponents of Iran in the Middle East - Saudi Arabia and Israel. If Tehran has enough money for the Su-57, then it will surely ensure full air superiority over all enemy vehicles, with the exception of a small number of American F-22 Raptor located in the Persian Gulf.

Tanks for ground forces and submarines for the fleet


Iran, like other countries in the Near and Middle East, has always paid great attention to the development of ground forces, in the first place - to building up tank relics. Recall that now the basis of the tank forces of Iran are Russian T-72 tanks, but the country's authorities understand the need for further modernization of the fleet of armored vehicles. The most likely candidate for the purchase is the Russian T-90S tank. In Iran, they have long been interested in them, noting the good combat capabilities of the tank and its low cost compared to other analogues.

However, the Deputy Commander-in-Chief of the Ground Forces of Iran, General Kiomars Kheidari, speaking about the possible prospects of acquiring Russian T-90 tanks, noted that Iran was interested not only in buying Russian-made tanks, but also in getting their production technologies in order to arrange the assembly of equipment already at Iranian enterprises.

In addition to these weapons, it is possible that Iran will want to acquire diesel-electric submarines from Russia. It is unlikely that Russia will deliver nuclear-powered submarines to Iran, as evidenced by the plans repeatedly repeatedly voiced by the Iranian authorities to build their own Iranian nuclear submarines. Now in service with the Iranian underwater fleet stand, in particular, and submarines of the class "Kilo", produced in the Soviet Union.

Thus, if the embargo that expires in October 2020 is lifted, Iran will be able to acquire Russian weapons. There is no doubt that some contracts will be concluded shortly after the end of the embargo, and some will cause fierce opposition from regional opponents of Iran. But in this case, it is unlikely that Russia will give up its interests - both financial and military-political. Although there have been precedents in relations with the same Iran. And the United States and Israel will do everything to extend the embargo. Moreover, in the case of possible intentions on the S-400, the emphasis will be placed on the case of an Iranian attack on a Ukrainian airliner.

        There are sanctions against the Russian Federation, and against the buyers of weapons, the Russian Federation also has ..... the problem is that Iran does not have money, and as soon as they appear Iran runs to buy to the west.

        And what count them then? Russia is all in sanctions (only foreign accounts should be blocked), so is Iran .. From the United States, Russia tried to flirt after the collapse of the USSR and we all know what happened, the NATO bases around us were almost drowned in blood .... Now there is a chance to make peace in BV, but this must be done together with Iran and nothing more!

        Difficult choice

        And what's so complicated?
        - The United States imposed sanctions against Russia.
        - The United States imposed sanctions against Iran.
        - Iran needs to rearm the army.
        - Russia has something to rearm the Iranian army.
        - Russia needs markets for the defense industry.
        - Iran is interested in Russia, as a member of the UN Security Council, for non-extension of US sanctions under the auspices of the UN.
        - Russia is interested in lifting sanctions for the supply of large quantities of weapons.
        - If Russia does not block US initiatives on Iran, China will do it, and he will carry out all the necessary supplies. It’s good for yourself. Let the quality be worse, but in all the necessary assortment.

        Well, what's the choice?
        And what is its complexity?
        Sanctions from Russia will not be lifted anyway.
        And from the new it’s neither hot nor cold - it’s usual.
        And Iran, among other things, is waiting for deliveries of Russian (in the Russian configuration) MS-21 and Sukhoi-Superjet-100 aircraft in a total of 300-350.
        Russia may lose contracts worth tens of billions of dollars. ( fellow ), if he gives up his interests. And in case of refusal from them, he will not receive ANYTHING. yes
        Therefore, I repeat the question:
        - So, is this choice so complicated? wink

      So then it is, but there are a lot of interests intertwined. As soon as the last time the sanctions were eased, Iran and Europe first of all launched cooperation (Thanks to Medvedev). As for weapons, then we need to negotiate with China, it is better to negotiate, rather than clash to the joy of "well-wishers."

    Yes, you can supply Iran with many of the weapons systems listed in the article. All this will be beneficial to both the Russian Federation and Iran. However, the Anglo-Saxons will be so hysterical from all this. They definitely do not need strengthening Iran. Will our authorities be able to conflict with the United States over Iran or not, that’s the question.

        The Russian Federation and Iran signed a contract for the supply of S-300 worth about $ 900 million in 2007. However, with the adoption by the UN Security Council on June 9, 2010, a resolution on Iran, which imposed a ban on the transfer of modern weapons to it, began to curtail military-technical cooperation between Russia and Iran. In April 2015, after some progress in negotiations on a nuclear issue between Iran and the Six International mediators, Russian President Vladimir Putin lifted the embargo on the delivery of the S-300 complex to Iran.

        Let's see what changes now ...

            Iran has a difficult financial situation and this can be used. Tehran can make an offer that is hard to refuse. Installment supplies by installments, but put forward requirements that meet the interests of the Russian Federation.

      I agree with you. Iran’s main ally is China, which buys (bought) the most oil from it. Due to the lack of money and the difficult economic situation in the country, Iran may agree with China on the supply of arms in exchange for oil. But here everything will depend on the determination of the Americans and its allies. Of course, Iran can also buy some weapons from Russia, but this is only on credit.

    As for the Su-30SM or Su-35, if such aircraft appear in the Iranian Air Force, the latter will gain advantages over almost all other countries in the region, since the aircraft in many respects surpasses the fighters in service with potential opponents of Iran in the Middle East - Saudi Arabia and Israel. If Tehran has enough money for the Su-57, then it will surely ensure full air superiority over all enemy vehicles, with the exception of a small number of American F-22 Raptor located in the Persian Gulf.

The article is easy to clone in the text, replacing the word “Iran” with the name of any country with an army in need of modernization, as well as of this country’s weapons to the appropriate nomenclature of the latest weapons of the Russian Federation indicated in the text .. In fact, just a listing of worthy new products of our military-industrial complex .. One of the most uninteresting articles of this author ..

    But what Russian weapons would help the Iranian authorities protect the country from numerous risks?

    In order to shield from countless risks - it will take trillions of dollars and decades in time.

    Thirdly, Iranian-made air defense systems are not yet produced in sufficient quantities. These problems, of course, do not detract from the fact that Iran has one of the most developed air defense systems not only in the Middle East, but also in the world.

    Something with the logic of the author is not quite. That is not produced in sufficient quantities, then one of the most developed air defense systems. Iran’s air defense is a hodgepodge of dozens of different systems. Moreover, long-range, such as S-300 or S-200, there are generally about 45 launchers. Medium-range - one and a half hundred American "Hawks" and half a hundred of our ancient S-75. Near radius - 2,5 hundreds of French “Crotals”, 3 dozen of our “Tori”, about the same amount of “Shell”, about 2-3 dozen “Rapier". There are not so many new Iranian ones in comparison with the total amount of air defense equipment. One cannot say with such a “zoo” that one of the developed air defense systems is not only in the Middle East, but also in the world

    If we talk about airplanes that could significantly change the face of the modern Iranian Air Force, then this is, of course, the 4 ++ MiG-35 generation fighter, the Su-30SM heavy fighter, and the Su-57 fighter in its export version. However, if we talk about the acquisition of the Su-57, then everything will rest, of course, on the financial issue.

    As for the Su-30SM or Su-35, if such aircraft appear in the Iranian Air Force, the latter will gain advantages over almost all other countries in the region, since the aircraft in many respects surpasses the fighters in service with potential opponents of Iran in the Middle East - Saudi Arabia and Israel. If Tehran has enough money for the Su-57, then it will surely ensure full air superiority over all enemy vehicles, with the exception of a small number of American F-22 Raptor located in the Persian Gulf.

    A masterpiece. And in order to achieve at least parity, you must have at least an equal number. And so the phrase that having received the SU-30SM or SU-35 Iran will receive an advantage over all countries of the region is a masterpiece !!!
    The same Saudi Arabia has about 215 F-15 different modifications, about 71 Typhoons and about 60-65 Tornadoes (we will not count). How many SU-30 and SU-35 should Iran have in order to have an advantage over Saudi Arabia? I’m not talking about Israel now. Pure fuss

    Coastal defense is another important area for Iran. The fact is that the United States and its allies, including Saudi Arabia, threaten Iran, primarily from the south - from the Persian Gulf. In the event of a conflict, the enemy will begin to strike on the Iranian coast.

    Now Iran, which does not have modern means of coastal defense, is protecting its sea borders with the help of a large number of sea mines. But the power of the Iranian coastal defense can increase significantly if the country, after the embargo is completed, manages to acquire Russian Bastion coastal missile systems that will help cover the Iranian coast.

    Well, of course, without the “Bastions” - nowhere. The fact that Iran has a large number of anti-ship missiles is probably not known to the author. From mobile systems disguised as civilian trucks to high-speed mini-boats with 1-2 anti-ship missiles. But Iran, according to the author, has nothing but mines ...

    Recall that now the basis of the tank forces of Iran are Russian T-72 tanks,

    Yes, with arithmetic, the author is also not very. According to the latest directory, Iran has about 1500 tanks, of which only 480 are T-72. Is this the foundation ??

      Well, let's calculate - Iran was asked to sell the S-400, the Russian Federation wrapped up (Russia refused to supply S-400 anti-aircraft missile systems to Iran. The reason, according to the agency, is the Kremlin’s reluctance to “aggravate the situation in the Middle East); They asked for the purchase of Su-35 and Su-30 (Russia refused to request Iran to supply a total of 24 Su-35 fighters (18 units) and Su-30SM (six units). Instead, Iran was asked to purchase an unknown number of Su-27SM3 fighters, what Iran refused); Further, Iran wanted to buy superjets, but (US authorities refused to authorize the sale of Russian Sukhoi Superjet 100 aircraft to Iran, because American components are used in the production of the liner.)
      So we do not want to sell ourselves

    this whole “modern” rubbish will not help Iran. Give / sell it to Yao and then it will be a really effective defense weapon for Iran. Everything else is about nothing. Israel in Syria has demonstrated how it successfully circumvents all these 300/400 complexes. And this is the problem of ALL defensive systems. The initiative always belongs to the advancing side. And the purchase by Iran of 20-30 su35 type aircraft (it is still unknown what they really are in real databases) will not make Iran a strong air power. No one in their right mind has a ground operation will carry out. And tanks the modern ones didn’t fall into Iran. Enough of those masses of infantry (Yemeni rebels with the support of Iran demonstrated their ability to literally fight with Berdanks) and without heavy equipment, etc. that is. And this is the strength of the Iranian VS. They are not afraid of losses and in close combat their strength.

    First things first, Iran does not have that much money. The main source of income, like ours, is the export of hydrocarbons, and Iran is under sanctions, plus it simultaneously wages three wars, which also diverts significant funds. And finally, Iran’s main trading partner is China.
    China is able to offer Iran a multi-role fighter built on the basis of our Su-27, but with more advanced avionics and S-300 level air defense systems, and much more weapons as counter deliveries. It will be more difficult for us in this case, but we are acting together in Syria, but nothing more. The attitude of the Iranians towards us is twofold, they know the value of our leadership and its word, the ayatollahs do not watch our zomboyaschik day and night to have the opposite opinion and be blind.
    MiG-35 how much can we offer them and deliver to Iran, when and when? ... Su-30SM, Su-34 or Su-35S, cousins ​​of our leadership from a small but very very proud country in the Middle East will not let them deliver to Iran East. Sukhoi planes have a range and capabilities that are not easy to fight with Israeli aviation, but also in which case strikes against targets in Israel "from Lebanese airspace." Moreover, there is always the possibility of Iran creating nuclear weapons, both warheads for its missiles and aviation bombs, in the latter case the Su-30SM and Su-34 aircraft can be their carriers - Israel’s nightmare.
    So do not flatter yourself and Iran has little money, and we have not so many chances. Maybe we’ll sell something, but not in quantities to perceive Iran as a serious buyer with a great prospect.
    And the article ... well, I also wanted to - I write wink "paper will endure everything."
