Israeli TV channel: Russia will supply Iran with two squadrons of Su-35 multirole fighters

Iran will receive two squadrons of multifunctional Russian Su-35 fighters, the delivery of aircraft will take place in the near future. This is reported by the Israeli press, citing intelligence sources.


According to the Israeli TV channel "i24news", in the near future Russia will start supplying Su-35 fighters to Iran, in total Tehran will receive 24 aircraft. In addition, Russia will allegedly supply the Iranians with air defense systems, which are not named. With planes lighter, Iran will get fighter jets originally intended for Egypt, which Cairo abandoned under pressure from the US. Since the export version of the fighters had already been produced, it was decided to deliver them to Iran.

According to Western intelligence, in response to the supply of fighters, Iran will supply Russia with drones of the Shahed-136/131 type. In Kyiv, they generally stated that Russia should receive more than a thousand kamikaze drones in the near future.

It is worth noting that talks about the supply of the Su-35 to Iran have been going on for quite a long time. Tehran said that they were buying planes, and not exchanging them for drones. In September of this year, the commander of the Iranian Air Force, Brigadier General Hamid Vahedi, said that the issue of purchasing aircraft is on the agenda, but a final decision has not yet been made.

According to Western experts, it is the Su-35 that is the only fighter capable of fighting the American F-35s in service with the Israeli Air Force. Therefore, now on the agenda of the Iranian Air Force is the purchase of the Su-35, and not the Su-30SM, which are much cheaper.

In early August, it was reported that Tehran allegedly signed a contract for Russian Su-35s back in July during a visit to Iran by Russian President Vladimir Putin. Then there was evidence that Russia had exchanged with Iran according to the scheme: "fighters for drones." But there were no confirmations or denials from either Moscow or Tehran.

    It is the Su-35 that is the only fighter capable of fighting the American F-35s in service with the Israeli Air Force.
    Therefore, the excitement of Israel and its desire to communicate this information to "the whole world" is understandable. And in terms of air defense means, it is possible to return to the deal on the S-400, which at one time had to be postponed.

      Israel's reaction to this message is interesting.

      And she is not. I went through the Hebrew-language media, found only a couple of articles on this topic on secondary resources, with a rather indifferent narrative, like a weather forecast, and the mainstream media did not even mention anything like that.
      And objectively speaking, I don’t think that Israel is very worried about these 24 aircraft, such a scenario (as well as the delivery of the S-400) was expected a decade ago, and they have long prepared for this. The IDF does not wait until the last minute, any potential threats are considered proactively, and countermeasures are developed in advance in order to be ready to solve problems in case of changing conditions.
      This delivery will not entail any significant change in the balance of forces. Not those numbers. Now, if it were a batch of 240 aircraft, with a dozen tankers, AWACS, modern electronic warfare systems, training of pilots, staff officers and strategic planners, corresponding to the Israeli level ...
      No, without radically significant SYSTEMIC improvements to the Iranian Armed Forces, this will not bring results.

        Israel's reaction is always there. But the Su35S does not threaten Israel and its territory ... There are no common borders with Iran and the Israeli Air Force and Air Defense at another level. But the Su35S dramatically increases the cost of Air Force (Israel or the United States) strikes on Iranian territory and dramatically raises Iran's air defense capabilities. By the way, it was Iran that was supplied with American Phoenix missiles (the prototype of our long-range missiles). In the Russian Federation, they are integrated into the Su35S. Iran can integrate its own. And then air operations against Iran (and this requires tankers and AWACS) will be difficult to implement

          Sharply - loudly said, rather a little. Not those quantities. No matter how good the aircraft is, effective use requires a SYSTEM into which this aircraft will be integrated. In the meantime, this system in Iran is an order of magnitude weaker, sporadic amplifications by individual instruments do not particularly affect the overall "temperature in the hospital".

          Will not. It will only affect the preparation of tactical plans. One in the field is not a warrior, even if there are 24 of them. And taking into account the fact that their resource will be protected, the flight of pilots will not be large, 40 percent will be grounded (at best), on routine maintenance ...
          Rather, in the event of a serious batch, they will overtake them to Pakistan, so as not to lose how much in vain, like Iraq at one time. Only Israel alone has a tanker arm that allows you to simultaneously project an aviation group of 2000+ fighters with AWACS, RTR / EW aircraft, and an evacuation unit for 3000-50 km. In some of the exercises in recent years, near Gibraltar, the IDF Air Force set up an air carousel with similar forces, for 48-72 hours, to "test the pen." And the Yankees have a similar opportunity an order of magnitude higher, given their hub in Qatar and the amount of equipment in general.

            This is the start of construction. And there are no loyal countries to Israel nearby. And no one will allow you to be based in Pakistan or Iraq or Syria. At best, Turkey and Azerbaijan. And flying up without support nearby is flying at high altitude. And the option of "peaceful flight in the territories of neighboring countries" will not work. And besides everything, there is a brsd, the accuracy of which in a conventional design already allows you to get into a separate place of a separate industrial enterprise. Therefore, a system in which there is both air defense and OTRK and ballistic missiles of different ranges that will fly to airfields, headquarters, factories, desalination plants (these are no longer civilian objects and not weapons of mass destruction) is being created in stages.

              About 1-2% of the Iranian arsenal reaches from Iran itself to the territory of Israel, only a couple of hundred missiles, which are taken into account in the current use of the missile defense system in the IDF.
              In order to seriously trouble Israel, Iran needs a closer foothold, in Syria, for example, which is why they have been trying for a decade to drag their less long-range arsenal there and prepare positions for a massive strike on Israel. And that is why Israel is stopping these attempts by bombing Iranian convoys and missile depots in Syria.
              But Iran’s air defense is not yet up to par, technologically, the recently vaunted Bavar-373, which tried to shoot at Israeli aircraft in Syria, was blinded tightly and shot like a duck in a shooting range.

                My friend :
                1. The tasks of attacking Israel and protecting the skies of Iran are tasks of different complexity. Su35S is quite enough for this. It is necessary to supplement AWACS and air defense.
                2. BR is the cheapest way to accurately deliver the maximum number of warheads to Israel. With a high degree of probability of an Israeli missile defense breakthrough. Planning blocks for BR will immediately follow (this is a reality in the Russian Federation and China and the future of Iran). And this complicates missile defense by 10-100 times.
                3. Israel, with all its technological advantage, is a small country with a developed industry (including a dangerous one). And after massive strikes, the recovery potential will be small. The use of nuclear weapons by Israel will lead to retaliatory use (This reality is getting closer every year)

And the PRC does not need this, they will not compromise their relations with Israel. And no one else.

                  Only bad luck. BR that can fly to Israel from Iran cost money, a lot of money, and are assembled piece by piece. Iran has at most a couple of hundred of these, over a decade of production 24/7. And Israel's missile defense systems, these couple of hundred, are just designed to intercept, and with a margin. Even if a dozen flies, this is a pellet for an elephant, in 1991 50+ flew in from Iraq and nothing.

                  How??? Hats? To do this, they need to use a trifle, of which they really have tens of thousands. But this little thing must first be concentrated in the right quantities where it will fly from. But "there" they cannot concentrate anything, because bombs with inscriptions in Hebrew fall from above, and this very concentration is nipped in the bud.

                  You seem to have difficulties with scaling, in order to really destroy the potential for the restoration of Israel, you need a dozen nuclear strikes of 100+ kilotons or hundreds of thousands conventional missiles. in 2006, several THOUSAND missiles fell on Haifa and the north of the country in a month, of which more than a thousand with warheads of 100+ kg. It slightly scratched the economy, nothing more.

        Exactly. Iran has signed and ratified the NPT, which implies the abandonment of military nuclear programs in exchange for access to peaceful nuclear technologies.
        Without this agreement, Iran would not have received a nuclear power plant in Bushehr from the Russian Federation, because the Russian Federation is also in the NPT. But Iran cheated, tried "to eat the fish and not break the rectum," for which its other members of the NPT are punished, because it's not good to rat.
        Israel (and also India and Pakistan) did not sign this agreement at all initially, did not receive nishtyaks attached to the signature from anyone, and therefore has the right to send everyone to the forest. fellow
