Iran is going to buy from Russia a party of T-90 tanks


Ahmad Reza Purdastan:
Our relations with Russia in the military-technical field have strengthened. And in this regard, the acquisition of Russian T-90 tanks is on the agenda. We hope that the relevant contracts will be concluded, and our specialists will go to Russia to gain experience in the operation of this modern technology.


What specific number of T-90 tanks that Iran is going to buy from Russia is in question - not yet reported.

Earlier, the Iranian authorities reported that deliveries of C-300 anti-aircraft missile systems began from Russia. Recall that earlier Russia decided not to supply complexes to Tehran, citing the adoption of the UN resolution, despite the conclusion of contracts and the fact that C-300 is difficult to attribute to offensive weapons. Namely offensive weapons UN resolution and forbade the supply to Iran. Now, C-300 Russia’s air defense system is being delivered to Tehran, and Iran itself has withdrawn the lawsuit that was previously filed against the Russian Federation.

        In terms of the totality of indicators, the new Russian T-90MS tank is the best on the international arms market. This statement was made by the Deputy General Director of Rosoboronexport Sergei Goreslavsky.

        "The new T-90MS tank has been repeatedly demonstrated at international exhibitions, including the largest regional IDEX exhibition in Abu Dhabi. We are convinced that the aggregate of indicators and the criterion" efficiency-cost "T-90MS, which is the pinnacle of the development of the T-72 / T-90 is the best tank offered on the international arms market today, " - quotes Goreslavsky RIA Novosti. The Deputy Director leads the Russian delegation at the Gulf Defense & Aerospace 2015 exhibition in Kuwait. It includes representatives of Rostec and Rosoboronexport.

          The newest Russian tank delighted military experts at the beginning of 2015 at an exhibition in Abu Dhabi. "One of the Middle Eastern countries has offered to test the T-90MS tank on its territory in August," said Igor Sevastyanov, deputy general director of Rosoboronexport. In addition, a number of states in the Middle East, back in February 2015, expressed a serious intention to purchase a Russian novelty.

          The T-90MS tank was developed and manufactured by the Uralvagonzavod corporation. In the new modification, all combat characteristics have been increased, including firepower, protection, mobility and command control. The main direction of modernization of the tank is the tower. It is equipped with a new automated fire control system, a more accurate 125 mm gun, remotely controlled 7,62 mm machine gun, and a new dynamic defense.

            Exactly. First there was a short Soviet-Iranian war of 1941, conducted by forces of 44 and 47 A ZakFR and 53 A SAVO. And then Iran signed an agreement according to which:
            The USSR and England received the right "to contain in the Iranian territory land, sea and air forces in such quantities as they consider necessary." In addition, the unified states were granted unlimited right to use, maintain, protect and, in case of military necessity, control over all means of communication throughout Iran, including railways, highways and dirt roads, rivers, airfields, ports, etc.
            Iran, in turn, has committed itself to “cooperate with the Allied states with all the means at its disposal and in all possible ways so that they can fulfill the above obligations”.

            In fact - this is she, the occupation.

          But there was a time when Iran asked to become the 16th republic.
          In fact, the right decision, though the size of the party is unclear and whether they will insist on their assembly. Although Iran is better to buy more air defense systems.

    There’s a double edged sword: without exporting military equipment, it’s hard to scrape together for a purchase for your army.
    In the case of tanks, I will say more: we have a very large number of tanks of earlier models, and tanks are weapons in our case, a defensive war. That is, if they attack us, then we defend ourselves. And to protect their territory, you can use any tanks that are in service. In addition, I do not really believe that in the near future someone will want a land war on our territory. Therefore, tanks are quite a good export earnings item. What does the high-tech export.
    But airplanes need to be saturated with modern VKS missiles.

      Honestly, I didn’t quite understand how they could buy tanks, they were offensive weapons, and they couldn’t be delivered to Iran for almost another 5 years, although some kind of instrument for supplying weapons there was specified there, such as a special permission of the UN Security Council.
      In fact, Iran just really needs to update its armed forces, and the complex here includes the ground forces and the Air Force and Navy, Air Defense, and so on, we could support our ally against terrorism as well as the enemy of the United States, Persian monarchies, Israel, Turkey well and earn a lot of money on this which we need so much to confront our enemies.

    It seems to me that the story of the lawsuit of Iran against Russia was a joint operation, against the background of not wanting to lift sanctions from Iran.
    After the appearance of this lawsuit and the alleged discord between Russia and Iran, the United States began to fuss about lifting sanctions.
    Is there a mistake, most were against the lifting of sanctions.
    If so, then the United States once again received a weekly footcloth on the boot!

    For good Persians, you need to buy a dozen T 100s for 72 T 90, which is reasonable both in terms of money and logic.
    I think about the tanks, they thought with a look at Iraq (to help) and to Turkey (to fill the face) - and there and there a lot of T 90 heaped up is not necessary, but mass is necessary.
    Yes, and a lot of T 72 (from conservation) can be negotiated at least tomorrow, and T 90 still has to wait.
