Military Review

Iran believes that the country is comparable to Russia in military technology

85

The Iranian army is one of the most powerful not only in the region, but also in the world. A highly developed defense industry allowed her to reach these heights.


This opinion is expressed in the Iranian newspaper Hamshahri. In this case, the publication refers to publications in the Israeli media.

The authors of the article believe that the Iranian military industry has managed to create samples of weapons that are comparable to the products manufactured in Russia. Also comparable to Chinese products. "And some of them are even better."

In particular, Tehran's successes in the production of unmanned aerial vehicles for various purposes are underlined. The authors argue that Iran has become one of the world's leading manufacturers of UAVs, as if bypassing Russia.

The Israeli newspaper The Jerusalem Post mentioned an arms exhibition that was held recently in Iran and showed perfect examples of modern military equipment comparable to the products of the world's leading manufacturers. Thus, Tehran demonstrates to its opponents that the country is capable of existing and developing, despite the sanctions imposed on it.

Mention is also made of the missile weapons and air defense systems presented at the exhibition. Their presence suggests that Iran has everything necessary for both offensive and defensive purposes.

But the highlight of the exhibition, the authors of the article called the demonstration of the American RQ-170 drone captured by the Iranian military in 2011. True, they modestly kept silent about the details of this operation, in which, most likely, Russian-made electronic warfare equipment was used.

        Only two countries can produce the entire range of weapons, the United States and Russia. China is gradually approaching this. Iran was not even close.

                Today we practically do not produce anything in the required condition or quantity.
                There are few ships, but with those that we release there are questions.
                Air defense - you need a much larger and wider range.
                There are few tanks.
                ACS - few.
                Etc.
                But nevertheless, the very range of manufactured products can be called complete. Or the most complete.
                For how long?

                  What are you so sad?
                  If you do not produce anything "the condition you need", this does not mean that Russia does not have weapons (production of weapons) sufficient to prevent aggression against its territorial inviolability and encroachments on sovereignty.
                  As for a sufficient number of tanks and other weapons dominating in WWII, it would be time to move away from the situation when "the generals really think in terms of the previous wars."
                  As for the tanks, can you share your thoughts, where is Russia going to deploy the Kursk Bulge?
                  The main "problem" of the Russian Armed Forces is the absence of ships in the fleet and bases in the territories of "probable allies" to fulfill and ensure their cloudless future.
                  Among other things, the mercantile interests of functionaries from the government directly and indirectly hinder the development of military construction and prevent the fulfillment of existing orders even at existing production facilities and sites. What can I say, long-term repairs, incomprehensible "tortoise zeal" in various areas of weapons production, outright betrayal in the form of disclosing military and state secrets, submission of state will to the requirements of "incomprehensible organizations and communities", the dependence of military production on the supply of "partners" ...

If necessary, heavy aircraft will be used (which only two countries have). So ... we need a UAV, but it's not urgent, and it's better to conduct the tests as they should.

      If they are catching up, then Russia is fleeing to the other side ... and Iran is purposefully strengthening its defenses, without defective managers, without Western partners, and as I understand it, without the life-giving hand of the market ...

        And in Iran there are successful managers and foreign partners - China for example. Yes, and the hand of the life-giving market is there too (technologies for the sale of oil) ... but I'm more worried about our "colleagues" from Israel ... it's a very lengthy article for me from Russia, but what can I say about Israelis (not about Jews) who have the smartest scientists and the most technologically advanced weapons. And again, everything comes down in the article to drones, as a panacea for all ills. You don't know: maybe this is hidden advertising from UAV manufacturers ???

          Iran has been under sanctions for 50 years now. And rely only on its own forces. And this somewhat stimulates reasonable activity. If the country does not ruin its aviation industry. Is engaged in education, then there is always a result.

          You probably don't know much about the state of the industry. Despite my also skepticism about our industrial commanders, we can still reproduce Soviet developments and even modernize them. AND Russian nuclear (submarine, of course) cruisers are still leaving the stocks, for a long time, difficult, but they are coming off. So you got your finger in the sky. We are talking about technologies, but there is still technology.

          APASUS, are we talking about technology or everything? Nuclear technology is, after all, an order of magnitude higher than the bolts for Boeing, which we can also make. Another question is that we are not allowed to do them, the prohibitive financial and patent policy. What does the "underestimation of the enemy" have to do with it, what is it for? Can Iran make satellites, guidance systems, ICBM missiles? Yes, Iran does tactical front-line armament at the suggestion of China, no one denies it. If we organize the production of the element base, then we will do everything that we did before. I look at VO, such commentators have proliferated, offtopers are sick all over their heads and you apparently lead them.

          No, Iran certainly should not be underestimated. Just objectively, and now - this state is under powerful sanctions (which cuts off their spending on science), a theocratic regime (which narrows scientific research), is in an extremely unstable region, and all resources are essentially tied to this region and its politics. Unlike the PRC, Iran's capabilities for stealing technologies are very limited, and the funds do not allow it to launch production of such a wide range of equipment as even in our country. They are forced to buy something, because of the sanctions they sell them not the best.
          From the point of view of the system of checks and balances, Iran is now practically an ant in pitch, it moves and concentrates, but this is happening even more slowly than in the case of our country. And on the horizon, nothing is foreseen that would radically change this trend.

        If you can arrange for the smuggling of Boeing engines to Iran, you will very soon become fabulously rich ................ do not write any more nonsense, please. Iran has mastered the production of repair kits and repair of aircraft engines for Boeing !
        after the Islamic Revolution of 1979, Washington stopped military-technical cooperation with Tehran, and the maintenance of the equipment turned out to be very difficult, because The US imposed unilateral economic sanctions, including banning the sale of aircraft and parts to Iran. Tehran has more than once accused the United States of hindering the development of civil aviation in Iran by all means and even handed over to the secretariat of the International Civil Aviation Organization a certificate in which the economic embargo by the United States is called the main reason for certain technical shortcomings and problems. This document accuses the United States of gross violation of Article 44 of the Chicago Convention of 1944, which is the fundamental document in the field of international civil aviation. This article states that a country that has signed a convention cannot interfere with the development of civil aviation in another country that is a party to this convention. In fact, the United States is flagrantly violating this provision. The state of the Iranian aircraft fleet really brings a sad smile among experts, because while civil aviation around the world is rapidly developing, creating a new generation of aircraft, Tehran can only boast that the Iranian Air Force was able to independently improve its fleet having learned to repair passenger Boeings 707 and 747 in just 40 days.

            Here's a paradox - there are no spare parts left, and the F-14 of the Iranian Air Force both flew and are flying ...
            Maybe the Americans destroyed something, and shoved the remnants into Iran at exorbitant prices on the sly?
            And yes, besides the mothballed aircraft, a repair kit for each aircraft was in the warehouses of the Navy, plus something was in the warehouses of manufacturers. I'm not sure that all this was stupidly disposed of - Americans are very fond of money, especially large ones and without taxes.

    We have already passed this "catch up and overtake". The question is, to what extent will this "overtake" be consistent with national security issues and interests? Obviously, with such statements the Iranian leadership, and the article reflects the opinion of the Iranian leadership, wants to instill and support the country's population confidence in the country's power and the ability to resist the main opponents.

    The fact that the Iranian army is not the last in the region is not even worth arguing about. But the Persians can also boast well
    the Iranian military industry has managed to create samples of weapons that are comparable to products made in Russia. Also comparable to Chinese products. "And some of them are even better"
    Dare, perhaps by doing this, you are holding back a possible American attack.

    Iran believes that the country is comparable to Russia in military technology

    Iranian military experts, probably, had something in their heads, the Iranians didn’t develop anything themselves - they either got the technology crooked somewhere or bought it, but the fact remains - they have been waiting for the lifting of sanctions for more than 10 years to get the C 300.

    What Iran has done to the Russian Federation for the production and use of UAVs is a fact! From trifles such as quadrics and ending with sheds such as Shahid .. They do not chase after gigantomania, but they have saturated their army. And they master it successfully.

      We remember that we still managed to catch these people and this school of education. At the Polytech, the surname of the teacher in the record book and the author on the title page of the basic book / problem book on the subject could be the same. smile

    But Turkey is developing harmoniously the entire military industry. And I foresee with them
    a breakthrough in the development of aviation. All the prerequisites are there.

    After I saw the vidos with the Iranian robot, of course, I began to take their scientific potential more seriously. However, it would be a big illusion on their part to compare the approximate similarity and fullness of their range of military products with ours. In matters of ballistic missiles, air defense / missile defense, any aviation, modern tank construction, equipment for infantry and SSN, helicopter construction, electronic warfare, radar technology - we surpass them by the corps.
    Of course, they can create good samples of light weapons, UAVs (well, excuse me, even if their Turkish private traders are already doing), I admit that they have very good competence in short-range missiles. Others, even at a stretch, are incomparable ..

    True, they modestly kept silent about the details of this operation, in which, most likely, Russian-made electronic warfare equipment was used.

    If the Russian means were used, the REB did not beat the opportunity to keep silent about the details - the Russians did not let the Iranians be killed.
    The default means Iranian, or in the worst case, North Korean or Chinese REB funds have just been used. Then the default is possible.

    No comment. As for the region, one can still agree, as for the world, they are still very far

    Iran has been under sanctions for 50 years.

    Isn't it 150 or 250 years? The Shah was overthrown in the late 70s (revolution of 1978-1979). During the war with Iraq, the United States, albeit tacitly, supported Iran (Operation Iran-Contra). The war ended in 1988. Even taking 1979 as a starting point, in any case, 50 years "does not dance"

    Israeli newspaper The Jerusalem Post mentioned the arms exhibition, which was held recently in Iran and demonstrated perfect samples of modern military equipment comparable to the products of the world's leading manufacturers. In this way, Tehran demonstrates to its opponents that the country is able to exist and develop, despite the sanctions imposed on it.
    When the exhibition took place, dont clear... But Fars News devoted a large segment to examining the new capabilities of Iran's weapons that could threaten the United States, Israel and their allies in the region.
    (Threatening, yes, but no more! And Iran knows it)
    Many Iranian drone models are replicas of American drones captured by Iran, although it has also built replicas of Israeli drones and weapons.

    Iran's original drones from the 1980s were relatively innovative and unique. But now he needs copies of American models such as the Predator and Sentinel, or the Israeli Elbit Hermes 450, either for propaganda or airworthiness reasons.

    Well, what, in 10-20 years it is quite possible. We will eat through the remnants of the Soviet legacy and that's it, we cannot create something new due to all-consuming corruption, the loss of qualified personnel, and the bureaucracy. Armata is a front tank, the T-50 cannot take off, the dagger is cartoon, we can’t even make submarines.

    Let them count the flag in their hands!
    You can't make a modern weapon on your knee. We need powerful science and production. Simply, stupidly, we need research institutes and design bureaus, albeit with a lot of ballast. Ballast, by the way, is also necessary. We need universities. And where is all this in Iran?
    No, I understand that we have a lot of problems with the same universities, I teach myself. But beyond the hillock, no better.

And let's also remember when was the last time Iran or earlier Persia won at least someone? All information on this topic is read only from the dusty manuscripts of the libraries, and these same manuscripts were written by no one knows who and unthinkable when!
