Military Review

The American publication called the likelihood of a major deal for the purchase of Russian weapons by Iran extremely low

131

Iran intends to buy a large batch of weapons from Russia, including the latest Su-35 fighters and the S-400 anti-aircraft system, but the likelihood of a deal looks extremely low, writes the author of an article for the American edition of Military Watch.


At the end of last year, information appeared about a planned arms deal between Russia and Iran. According to reports, Tehran intends to purchase a large batch of Russian weapons, including 24 Su-35 fighters, two batteries of S-400 air defense systems, as well as a Russian satellite. In addition, under the agreement, Russia will overhaul Iranian MiG-29s and Su-24Ks and retrain Iranian pilots. The cost of the deal will be $10 billion, most of which Iran will pay for with oil supplies.

However, the author considers the probable deal unrealistic and gives a number of arguments in his favor. First, he writes, settling with Russia, one of the largest oil exporters in the world, again with oil supplies, looks stupid. Secondly, the amount of the $10 billion deal does not match the approximate cost of the weapons planned for delivery. Based on previous Russian deals, the total for fighter jets and anti-aircraft systems will be about $4 billion, with another $5 billion to spend on repairs, training, and satellite. It is not clear where the other XNUMX billion came from.

Another argument in favor of the unrealistic deal is that Iran intends to buy the most expensive Russian Su-35 fighters, when until recently it was negotiating with China for the supply of Chinese J-10C fighters, which are much cheaper both themselves and in operation. Considering that the park is combat aviation Iran is significantly outdated, it is more profitable for Tehran to buy more Chinese fighters or Russian, but cheaper ones, for example, the MiG-35, which is a further development of the MiG-29, which is in service with the Iranian Air Force. Moreover, the Iranian military has previously shown interest in MiG fighters and cheaper Su-30s, but not in expensive Su-35s.

Thus, the probability of a deal between Russia and Iran for the purchase of S-400 air defense systems and Su-35 fighters for $10 billion remains extremely low, the author concludes.

        There are a lot of decisions here .... you need to read the contract ..... training, ammunition, spare turbojet engines, ground equipment .... etc. In general, if you build an Air Force fleet, I would start with the MiG35S and Su30SM2 ...... and replace everything that is with these machines .... Or J10 and Su30SM2 ... and Chinese sighting containers.

      The question is not what Iran wants, but what the Russian Federation, which is very sensitive to the opinion of dear Western partners and no less expensive officials from Israel, will sell to it.

          At best, the Su-35 will become combat-ready in Iran in a year. And despite the fact that Iran has neither AWACS aircraft, nor such a number of modern aircraft, and I think the quality of the pilots is lower. That is, the delivery of 24 Su-35s will not seriously change anything. The same picture with the S-400 if they are also sold. But on the other hand, if Israel dares to strike, it will be before all this becomes combat-ready.

            Well, why: Iran already has 4 S-300PMU-2 divisions, so they will be able to master the S-400. There are "Torah" also. There are Soviet fighters and pilots who can fly them. Here the question will be in retraining, and this is not as difficult and time consuming as teaching again.

              1. With the S-400, there is more of a question when they will be made (the queue and the Indians are waiting for them). 2. Comparing the MiG-29 "9-12B" and the Su-35 is not very .... moreover, to teach not only pilots but also technicians.

              1. Throw off pictures or an official message of arrival. 2. How is this possible if there is no agreement today and the Persians will arrive in Moscow only on the 19th. And the question is whether they agree or not.

                      The topic is really sensitive. And the article by the American author is stupid, he even has problems with arithmetic, he can’t count on logic. He considered that 10 billion is too much, they say, 24 billion for air defense systems and 5 fighters. But Iran has always wanted to buy not 24, but 75 (!) Heavy fighters. So - the cost of 75 Su-35 = 7,5 billion dollars. + 2,5 billion dollars. for two regimental sets of S-400 (this was the case for Turkey).
                      Total 7,5 + 2,5 = smile a miracle of 10 billion dollars.
                      24 Su-35s will be delivered this year - they will be overtaken by the summer.
                      And the remaining 51 pcs. will be delivered in the coming years.
                      I will also correct the "logic" of the American "expert" - about negotiations on Chinese J-10s. lol
                      The fact is that for several years it has been known that Iran will most likely choose the Su-35 or Su-30 as a heavy fighter, and as a light J-10. So one does not exclude the other.
                      And Iran's plans for light fighters are measured in the order of 150 J-10s.
                      The author’s opinion that the Russian Federation will not take oil is also stupid. lol More like take. bully Indeed, when calculating oil, its cost is always at a good discount (expenses and troubles for its sale). And the oil will go to India. yes She needs a lot of oil, and the Russian Federation has its own refineries in India ... and a network of gas stations. Oil is NEEDED. Indeed, when delivered from Iran, logistics costs will be much less.
                      But having re-equipped its aviation, Iran will be completely different - the strongest military power in the Gulf, and maybe the entire region, and besides, a nuclear one.

                        In the Russian Federation there is a special Russian-Iranian bank that solves problems in mutual settlements between our countries. The main thing is that Iran would have enough money for mutual settlements.

                        The question is what kind of money. Iran is under sanctions and cannot pay in dollars / euros - transactions are prohibited, money will be arrested. Therefore, the calculation is carried out in oil, gold, barter. An agreement "Goods instead of oil" has long been concluded with Russia, while oil comes at a discount. Oil from Iran (and Venezuela) goes to Indian refineries owned (50%) by the Russian Federation, and then to gas stations, the network of which in India is owned by the Russian Federation is about 4000 units.
                        So there is where to carry Iranian oil. And the cost of transportation is less. China is also working with Iran in the same way.
                        And according to this scheme, grain is supplied to Iran from the Russian Federation.

                        I'm talking about the fact that they need to eat and buy equipment for them .... and a certain amount and price of oil and resources, obviously at a discount ..... Trade itself is a matter of technology .. there is the Caspian Sea, there is the Volga River. There are oil terminals and grain, and the Russian Federation can always sell its oil as an offset.

                        Iran has a relatively balanced economy and has been under sanctions for a long time. And he has been trading at a discount for a long time - a forced measure, but this is a payment for risk and inconvenience. That's why our defense enterprises or grain traders need Iranian oil?
                        And in order to sell it, you need to attract a gasket company, to which most / all of the discount will go away, and even wait until the deal goes through ... troublesome. So the discount is not in vain.
                        But if the contract is large, the volumes are large, then it makes sense.
                        Or do you think it costs nothing to help the Iranians to sell oil?
                        After all, Russia also has export quotas under the OPEC agreement.

                        True, in recent years there have been rumors about the imminent division of the world into currency zones. And that the Russian Federation will have its own currency zone. but it should be much larger than the RF itself. So it's time for Iran to apply to the CSTO (what a hairpin of the USA) and the EAEU - which will be this very currency zone.

                        Here you also need to take into account that in order to extract oil, you need to buy equipment and conduct oil and gas exploration ...... and repair what you have.

                        For this, there is China, which has concluded an investment deal with Iran for 300 billion dollars. , but the fact of the matter is that he will still take Iranian oil at a discount. You can do it yourself, but then the equipment is only from China and the Russian Federation - sanctions.
                        True, having increased its status by re-equipping the Air Force and acquiring a nuclear status, its negotiating positions may increase.
                        And if he becomes a member of the CSTO and possibly the EAEU, then the single currency and the single market will benefit him. Iran, after all, has a lot of things besides oil.
                        For example, GAZ ... which he cannot sell anywhere. The way out is gas-liquefying capacities, because the neighbors do not allow him to pull pipes.
                        The Russian Federation has its own gas-liquefying technologies and its own production of them, now Rosneft is building factories on this equipment ... If there is interest (from Rosneft), you can also participate in Iranian projects. Especially within the framework of a single bloc and the EAEU.

It is more difficult for China and the Turks ... The Turks have already clapped gold with Iran for oil ..

          You, in your lies and Israeli hatred, have already completely lost everything reasonable.
          Egypt has not bought anything with its own money over the past 10 years, but someone sponsored it all the time.
          Americans annually bash for the Canal,
          The Saudis are bashing.

          And it is the Saudis who pay for aviation.
          And it is they who dance and bend Egypt the way they want.
          And in what position to put Egypt - it is the Saudis who also make the decision, but not the Egyptians themselves.

        The Su-35 can take on board not only air-to-air missiles, but also the widest range of weapons to work on land and sea targets, from smart bombs to the Yakhont anti-ship cruise missile.

      In your words yes honey ...
      Iran is ready to purchase a large amount, but the pro-Israeli lobby in our country is very strong. And the Israeli relatives of some officials have an overwhelming influence on them. This was well demonstrated with the refusal and then the postponement of the execution of a prepaid Iranian contract for the supply of C 300, under the then President Mendelevedev.
      Apparently, even now only those weapons with which the Israelis are well acquainted (and against which countermeasures and methods of successful struggle have been developed) will be sold.
      Most likely, for a "special" approach to the sale of weapons to Iran, Israel will again sell museum junk to our generals. Which will be sold as achievements of the domestic military-industrial complex that have no analogues in the world.
      How disgusting it is to sell the interests of Great Russia for teudat zeuta (registration) in Tel Aviv.

    As the saying goes, the fool gets richer with a dummy.

    And so, how many people, so many opinions.
    In my opinion, there are several obvious inaccuracies:
    Su35 can hardly be called the latest.
    MiG35 in full configuration, i.e. with AFAR, it is unlikely to be much cheaper, maybe even vice versa.
    The Su30 has now been upgraded in packing to the level of the Su35, so the price will be exactly the same.
    Well, what is better, a couple of dozens of more or less advanced Dryers or a dozen of three or four "Chinese", here is an amateur question. Again, the Persians are now much stronger friends with China than with us.

And gas - the largest importer after the European Union, China and Canada - is also not stupid? Is it stupid to buy gas in Russia and resell it to China?

      If you are talking about an American author, then it is so.
      Iran, on the eve of the Nuclear Deal, decided that after the embargo was lifted, the first thing it would do was upgrade its Air Force by purchasing 75 heavy fighters (Su-30 or Su-35) and 150 light fighters (MiG-35 or J-10 of the latest modification). As you can see, the choice fell on the Su-35 and J-10, and the choice (in my opinion) is optimal.
      The MiG-35 may be of interest only to that buyer who needs ONE type of fighter. For the MiG-35S is a medium-class fighter.
      And about the total amount of the expected contract.
      Considering that in total Iran needs 75 heavy fighters (and not 24), the cost. 100 billion each, then the cost is 75 pcs. = 7,5 billion dollars.
      And two regimental sets of S-400 = 2,5 billion dollars. (so it cost Turkey).
      Here are the required 10 billion dollars.

      I am inclined in favor of "currency + oil" according to the 50x50 scheme. In addition, there are expectations that oil prices will rise above $100 per barrel, and therefore stake oil for several billion at the current price is quite a good deal.

        There are other mechanisms at work here. Purchased oil becomes Russian, not Iranian. The United States is just as successful in buying Russian liquefied gas and reselling it to buyers, but under its own contracts, but this does not mean that the gas is produced in the United States.

        Time. 5 years lost. The customer was clearly not happy about this. Only after the sanctions of 14 years, Putin signed the go-ahead for supplies. When the West "punished" us, then we felt the sanctions and began to understand Iran better.
        Something tells me that Iran will remember all this.

      The fate of the Egyptian contract for the purchase of Su-35 fighters remains uncertain



      Despite the fact that the contract for the purchase of Su-35 aircraft by Egypt from Russia has been signed and their construction has been completed, the aircraft have not yet been delivered to Egypt.

          Iran and Russia will sign a $2022 billion 20-year security and defense cooperation agreement in January 10 that will include the purchase of Su-35 fighter jets, S-400 missiles and satellites. This is reported by the Mehr agency with reference to the website 19fortyfive.

          According to information gathered by a defense analyst, the agreement will include the purchase of at least 24 Su-35SE heavy fighter jets. Many of these aircraft have already been built as they were part of a pending order for Egypt.

        On the network, many different resources give such information on the Egyptian contract:
        [/ quote] We can talk about buying 24 units of these fighters, and about 16 of them have already been produced and are located at the site of the Gagarin Aviation Plant in Komsomolsk-on-Amur. He explained that these are fighters that Egypt ordered in 2018, but Washington is preventing the completion of the deal, threatening to impose sanctions on Cairo, which will harm the existing arsenal of the Egyptian Armed Forces (more than 200 F-16 fighters, dozens of AH-64 Apache helicopters and over 1000 tanks M1А1 Abrams). Therefore, the Egyptians are in no hurry to receive combat aircraft from the Russians. In turn, the Russians tried to sell these Su-35SE to Indonesia, but the United States made a fuss here too.

        Cairo immediately paid Moscow $3 billion for the planes, the aircraft has already been built or is on the assembly line, so there can be no talk of terminating the contract in principle. In this regard, the Egyptians allegedly asked the Russians to transfer these fighters to Iran, which will pay for them with "barrels of crude oil." This is a normal barter deal with an absolutely working scheme that will satisfy everyone except the US. Iran has already selected 30 pilots to be sent to study in Russia, and if the above agreement is signed as planned, then training will begin in January, and by mid-2022, all 24 Su-35SE will be handed over to the Iranians.

    As for the desires of the purchase, everything is clear.
    But it will really not be easy for Iran to pay. Iran is now in a very difficult economic situation ... The lack of water has led to a critical situation for the local population in the main agricultural areas .. farmers have lost their crops, moreover, this has been going on for several years in a row. .Products that were previously produced at home have to be bought abroad .. Prices have risen, inflation has begun in the country, people are already protesting with social
    requirements .. The most important thing is that the government, instead of solving problems, began arrests and banally shoot protests .. The leadership is faced with a choice: either strengthen the defense against the threat of external dangers, or raise the standard of living of its own population .. Both very important .. and there is simply no financial means to do both ..

              They may have used the backward reclamation technologies of the 1940-50 model: they decided that they would manage on their own, and their agricultural science and hydraulic engineering science during the sanctions degraded much deeper than the defense industry.
              On the other hand, this is a window of opportunity for the agricultural specialists of the Russian Federation - neither the Europeans, nor the Americans, nor the Israelis and the Chinese will correct their mistakes (the consequences there will now be cyclical, seasonal). There is an opportunity for hydroconstructors and specialized agricultural research institutes of the Russian Federation to receive foreign funding of such proportions, which usually happens only in defense sectors.

    Thus, the probability of a deal between Russia and Iran for the purchase of S-400 air defense systems and Su-35 fighters for $10 billion remains extremely low, the author concludes.

    There will be a low probability if the US accepts our "ultimatum". And since the likelihood of this is even lower, the sale of weapons to Iran is just very likely. What can prevent two "rogue states" from trading with each other?

    I didn't really understand...
    The author says that Iran wants to buy air defense, fighter jets and repair some of the weapons.
    The author says that Iran will pay 10 billion dollars for this. And the payment will be oil.
    A paragraph later, the author says that this weapon is not worth 10 billion, but is worth 5.
    Well OK, Iran will pay 5.

    Why, due to the fact that the author cannot agree with himself, Iran cannot buy weapons from the Russian Federation?

    And as for the fact that Iran cannot pay off with Russia with oil - it's all nonsense.
    Russia sells oil to anyone, and getting five billion worth of oil is quite normal. We have a lot of clients. And the fact that it does not have to be dragged from Siberia, but can be shipped in the Persian Gulf, for example, to China - why not? Minus the cost of logistics.

    An American writes about things he doesn't know himself. Everyone already knows that Iran will "take away" Su-35s intended for the Egyptians. The planes are ready and can be seen on the Google map. Persians will supply oil to Egypt. The Egyptians paid us with money. A delta of 5 yards is rather an extremely low price for barter oil, and a plus is rather a large amount of ammunition for both old aircraft and new Su 35. Or for some kind of Iskander, just not the whole list is announced

And stepping on the callus of the Americans in the Strait of Hormuz is already the direction of a further offensive. And so they will now ask for what will more effectively complete the first task.

      I completely agree with you, which is probably why the choice fell on fighters and air defense systems.

      But I believe that the author of the article was mistaken and it is most likely not about 2 S-400 batteries, but about 2 divisions, i.e. about the S-400 regiment (especially since the S-400 is, in general, the regimental system).

    In addition, several countries have already abandoned our fighter, the reason is quite ordinary, having excellent flight characteristics and exceptional maneuverability for an advanced 4th generation aircraft, it has avionics, avionics significantly inferior to its counterparts.
    Computer simulation of battles and training battles with NATO fighters of various versions of the Su-30 became the final nail in the coffin of the 4th generation fighters of the Su-27 family and development.

    Su-35s were bought because of thrust vectoring engines and a number of other nodes for study and COPYING.
    That is why there was a bargaining around the number of purchased Su-35s, in fact, our "effective managers" were bargaining about the price for which we are ready to give in to China also these technologies.
    The result of this transaction on video:


    And the overall result - China is already completing work on the third stealth fighter, this time in the deck version, I will not say anything about our only one. It is moving away from dependence in the supply of our aircraft engines of the AL family. And finally, the hero in the video, the J-10 fighter has been brought to the level of the latest modifications of Western fighters and is at least not inferior to those of the F-16, and gradually became the most numerous modern PLA Air Force fighter.

    The difference between the SU35S and MiG35 is the most important in terms of range, with the SU 35S, Iran can safely fly to Tel Aviv and keep almost the weight of the BV at gunpoint. This comedy in Egypt where the allegedly Rafal drowned out the SU35 C and won the fight, only for deb .... catches. SU35S can easily deal with F35 and EASY, and with F22 on level ground. They don’t think that they can carry more different weapons than F35 and F22 in place. For Iran, the purchase of the SU35S would be what it takes to dominate the BV.
    Taking into account the trinity geopolitical situation, this would bring a balance of power in the BV with NATO and even an advantage, and NATO zlochintsy understand only such a language of POWER and dominance.
