A senior Iranian MP says the country has purchased the most advanced type of Russian fighter jet which is only sold to the Russian army.

According to a report by Mizan, as translated by IFP, Abolfazl Hassanbeigi, the vice-chairman of Iranian Parliament’s National Security and Foreign Policy Commission, referred to the history of Iran’s plane purchase from the Soviet Union, and then Russia, and said, “Iran has purchased Sukhoi and Mikoyan MiG-29 fighters before.”

“MiG-29 is manufactured in three ranges. The first is sold to small countries; the second to Russia’s allies, and the third to the Russian Army,” he added.

“The Islamic Republic of Iran has bought the same MiG-29 fighter jet that the Russian army possesses, namely the most advanced type.”

Elsewhere in his remarks, he further referred to the negotiations with China, Ukraine and Russia for joint manufacture of fighter jets.

“However, we haven’t bought Chinese aircraft because they were not as advanced as we expected them to be,” he noted, dismissing the reports about Iran’s secret negotiations with China about fighter aircraft purchase.

“Nothing can remain secret in today’s world. […] The world will naturally know and announce anything purchased or sold by Iran,” he added.

“As Iran is aware of the large number of weapons sold by Germany, France, China and the United-States to ISIS allies, others know about Iran’s deals as well,” Hassanbeigi went on to say.

Chinese Plane Makers Should Meet Int’l Standards to Sell Aircraft to Iran: Minister

While China is trying to catch up with Western aircraft manufacturers for a share of Iran’s market, Iranian Minister of Road and Urban Development Abbas Akhoundi made it clear that Chinese planes must meet international standards and think of technical support before sales to Iran.

Akhoundi, who is in China with a business delegation, paid a visit to the Commercial Aircraft Corporation of China (COMAC) in Shanghai.

COMAC is China’s state-run aircraft manufacturer, established in 2008, Tasnim reported.

In comments during the visit, Akhoundi emphasized that Chinese planes will need to meet international safety standards before being used in Iran’s fleet.

Chinese plane-makers ought to assure Iranian airlines and organizations of the safety, technical and quality standards, and should also guarantee the after-sales service, as well as technical and financial support, he added.

Iran signed deals with European and American plane manufacturers after coming into force of the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), a nuclear agreement between Tehran and the Group 5+1 (Russia, China, the US, Britain, France and Germany) reached in July 2015.

During a visit to Paris in January by Iranian President Hassan Rouhani, Tehran signed a major contract with Airbus worth about $27 billion to buy 118 aircraft.

Iran also sealed a deal in June worth around $25 billion with the US aerospace heavyweight, Boeing, for the purchase of 100 passenger planes.

You don't know that :) Also, try to outmaneuver a plane when you don't even know where it is, I don't think it will work out.
You don't have any plane with enough range to fly over Israel, let alone go back. and it would be instantly shot down over enemy territory by our Davids Sling.

the american f-117 was said to be stealth too , it was shot down by a soviet sam from the 1960's

read the article carefully , it says russia is willing to export a mig-29 with a higher range , if they wanna buy a higher range mig-29 they wanna fly it to israel , on the way back it can use iran's inventory of aerial refueling to refuel indeed

instantly shut down over enemy territory by our Davids Sling
you're not suggesting israel is hiding SAM's in iraq are you ? :crazy: cause they'll be overrun by our shia militiamen after they fire their first sam

This news sounds like nonesense. Iranian defence minister stated they are talking to Russians about su-30. I have no idea where this foolish MP got this Mig-29 story from. If Iran wanted to go for a Mig, they would clearly go for the Mig-35.

The F-117 was shot down when he had its weapons bay open. It wouldn't happen to an F-35 because its weapon bay is instantly closed when you fire your bomb or missile.

The highest range the best MiG-29 version can achieve is 1430km. Not enough to even get to Israel, and even if it would have got into Israel we have the Davids Sling, which is the best SAM in the world that can shoot you down over our neighboring countries.

And how the hell did you conclude that I said "Israel has SAM's in Iraq"

i wonder why you call it a weapon bay then :lol: if it's constantly closed :lol:

the iron dome too was said to be the best , it proved to be less than best


And how the hell did you conclude that I said "Israel has SAM's in Iraq"
you said "enemy territory" i concluded you must have hidden your sams in a third country , cause israel is not really "enemy territory"

-------------------

the f-117 was shut down because the stealth technology is more or less propaganda , it works against a nation like iraq but not against russia or someone else willing to fight back
