    Iranian Air Defense Systems

    Impressive trio. With Third Khordad taking care of short (Dey-9) medium (Ta'er-2[d]?) and long range (Ta'er-3), I do have to ask myself if the Sayyad-4A of the same range as Ta'er-3 will indeed be deployed. Would it not make more sense to go straight ahead with deployment of the Sayyad-4B? As...

    Iranian Chill Thread

    I remember some six years ago at https://www.business-standard.com/article/news-ani/iran-possesses-bomb-which-dwarfs-us-moab-117091600579_1.html ... a report of an Iranian Father of all Bombs appeared. I cite the following which captures it in a nutshell:- ... "Following a proposal by the...

    The first to target, if the US is involved, will be multiple, multiple, CM's. Those which are able to avoid detection and subsequently reach their targets will not however have the oomph to damage seriously dug in Iranian nuclear facilities. Maybe these will target ADS' such as SAM batteries...

    Hi Yet more interesting posts. There are two distinctive camps regarding a 'souped up' Kowsar 11'. One favorably in support thereof, the other definitely not in support of it. Also very nice pics posted to Twitter, and also to this thread of possibly such an a/c. One in particular shows its...

    Iranian Chill Thread

    Hi Intriguing posts. Regarding the optical ball and missiles on each side, could this possibly be it:- On the poster to the left, at the bottom, is an image that I cannot discern. Neither on the poster to the right, at the bottom. As far as modified KOWSAR'S goes, imagine such combat a/c...

    Made in Iran

    Thank you for your input. I realized that a military t/fan cannot be directly read over to a civilian one. What I had in mind - ToT not withstanding, is the entire supply chain intended to produce a 'heavy' engine (viz. RD-33 et al?) mentioned in September 2016, and alluded to in July 2020...

    Made in Iran

    Hi Hope I'm not off topic. But I wrote the above up as follows. If it takes a village to raise a child, then it takes a country to raise an aircraft. Either that country pulls together as one, or it falls together as one. A possible plus to this may be found in Iran’s planned IRJ-72...

    This is a subject that has garnered comments of various kinds. Some are in favor of the Sukhoi Su-35S Flanker E, some are not. If the IRIAF is successful in acquiring this a/c, then it would have to be in sufficient numbers to really impact the air space over Iran. A number of 24 is a little on...

    New Introductions

    “In addressing the acquisition of Su-35 Flanker F’s as per Joe_Adam, he states that he would “love to see Iranian made hi-tech/long range superiority fighters but due to lack of funds, the projects started slow in piecemeal fashion. That must be overcome, hopefully very soon.” I have for a...
