Iran is seeking the S-400 air defense system from Russia, Bloomberg News reported on March 2, citing Israeli and American sources.
The sources said that the possible acquisition of the sophisticated air defense system by Tehran would speed up an Israeli decision on a possible attack on Iranian nuclear sites. Russia has not yet said publicly whether it will supply the system.
The S-400 air defense system was developed by Russia’s defense giant Almaz-Antey to counter all sorts of airborne threats, including stealth fighter jets, cruise missiles, drones and ballistic missiles.
The system utilizes several types of missiles with different specifications, with the most capable being the 48N6 and 40N6E with the ranges of 250 and 400 kilometers respectively. The main radar of the system, the 91N6, has a maximum detection range of up to 600 kilometers.
According to Bloomberg News report, Iran could need up to two years to operate the S-400 system if a deal was reached with Russia.
Russian-Iranian military cooperation grew last year. The United States and its allies claim that Russia received hundreds of combat and suicide drones from Iran for use in its special military operation in Ukraine.
In 2019 some Iranian officials expressed interest in procuring the S-400 missile system to further improve its defense capabilities along with the previously purchased S-300PMU2. Russia stated at the time it was ready to sell the S-400 system to Iran if an official request was made.
The reports of a possible S-400 deal came following talk of Russian preparations to deliver several weapon systems, including some two dozen Su-35 fighter jets, to Iran.
Israel has been threatening Iran over its nuclear program for the last two decades. Tensions rose after the U.S. withdrew from the 2015 nuclear deal. Talks to resolve the issue slowed down last year, which explains why Tehran may be preparing for a worst case scenario.
They’ve said their new “Bavar” system (revers copy of upgraded S-300) is better than Russian S-400…. Far too many influential Jews in Russia. It’ll take years for delivery….(just like with S-300PMU2)
No, they didn’t say it is better but it can match/equivalent to S-400.
TASS (Russia): “Iran’s Bavar-373 long-range mobile air defense system, believed to be an equivalent of Russia’s S-300 systems, will become operational by the year-end” –
The Aviation Geek Club (West): “The Iranian Bavar-373 not only competes with the S-400 but is effective against stealth aircraft such as F-22 and F-35 fighters.”
Iran Front Page news (Iran): “Iran’s Bavar-373 air defense system rivals Russia’s S-400”
Now can you link me the source which claim Iran said it is “better than Russian S-400”? I would love to read which dumbass said that. Also, Russia is selling their jets, attack helicopters and there were words going around for years that Iran was looking to buy Russian S-400 and that Russia didn’t had problem with selling them to Iran.
Matter of fact Russia has more reasons to now sell them to Iran as Zionists hint it they might give Ukraine their air defence systems.
was not referring to TASS but to Iranian source. That news article goes back to the time of the 1st appearance of the production model of that system. I can’t find my source now since that was early last year. I have no clue even where exactly I red it.. The words were ;” as good as and in many aspects even better than S-400″ or something very similar to that.(I remember it because I was considering it exaggerated immediately) The person who wrote it (expert or journalist) obviously couldn’t say that. Since no Iranian military expert was even close to S-400 at the time. Let alone to know the specifics.
Russia had big problem selling them S-300 for sure. When Iran finally decided to take it to the international court (because they have paid in advance and waited for years) Russia suddenly decided to re-mediate and have sent them S–300PMU2 (some say that it was S-400 in “everything but the name” I doubt that because the biggest problem is always the long range 400km missiles (with reduced export range)as compensation and apology) Chinese who pre-ordered long before anybody else, before the sales of S-400 even started, have waited long time to see finally long range missiles)
Russia has better air defence systems compare to other countries that are selling them. But no air defence is great, The U.S. Patriot missiles failed to stop drones and cruise missiles attacking Saudi oil sites. Over the years we seen $100-$200 Gaza rockets breakthrough Israeli air defence systems and one of Syria S-200 missile landed inside Israel near their nuclear site. Same goes with Russia another massive explosion reported just today in Moscow region, in the suburbs of Kolomna.
“The best defense is a good offense”. You can see what the US is doing, they know how weak they are now and how hard it is for them to even attack weaker countries.
I don’t really fan of air defence systems but if I had, I put my money on Russian air defence systems.
The most recent “Iron Dome” usage between Israel and plain old rockets from Gaza says a lot. Plenty of damage was done by plain rockets. While patriot missiles did stop many of them. The images of the sky that night in Israel, you could see the missile/rocket trails. Maybe you remember that? Imagine if Gaza/Hezbollah had guided missiles!
Aircraft still carry chaff for AA missiles… Nothing’s perfect. I agree though, Russian’s seem to be more territorial defense oriented. Including their skies.
Medvedev was under the spell of the West and made some mistakes. This will not be repeated.
I linked you 3 source one from Russia, one from West MSM and one from Iran. None of them mentioned that the Bavar-373 was better than S-400 – that was my point. I was interest which news outlet said, “as good as and in many aspects even better than S-400”.
Also, you should check your sources, you know PressTV or Fars News – those are real Iranian news sites – but they are fake news site which claim they are Iranian news site like Iran international (they are base in London).
The Bavar-373 is based of S-300 and Iran claim they upgrade it, now people claim it is close to S-400, you have to take it with a grain of salt – all of it is just claims. TBH, I was mainly wondering which news outlet claim that.
Israel can’t attack Iran alone and destroy Iran’s hardened underground nuclear facilities unless of course the IDF were to use nukes if they really have them. If Israel does use nukes then Putin will have an excuse to use nukes in Ukraine and bring the war to a quick end on his terms.
Well that’s just a real poor idea. We all want Israhell to piss off but it’s not worth ending the World.
Israel has nukes and will use nukes against all WMD’s who jeopardize us and our Allies.
What the fuking are you even saying? “will use nukes against all WMD’s who jeopardize us and our Allies”
What dose that even mean ape? Speak English. WMD is stand for Weapon of mass destruction.
What is the meaning of having nukes if you dont use them? Off course Israel will use them but in the right moment, and not only that. Israel has already used their nukes several times in 9/11, Yemen, Lebanon.
What Russia will do if Israel use nukes?? Nothing. Absolutely nothing at all. Sitting on the fence as usual. Issuing declarations that this is against the Geneva Convention, the Minsk Deal, chatting chatting, the usual bs.
That was a nonsense comment of you having used ‘nukes’…….how bout you come on out of your muzlim closet of multiple ID’s? Yous muzlim no? run this bombastic site? playing both sides of the debate?……lol……stupid muzlim.
Jews are good at telling fairy tales.
Iran build underground military sites BEACUSE if their enemy use nuclear weapons they wouldn’t be able to destroy those underground bases – that is the whole point. Those bases are deep underneath a mountain NOT level ground and you have to hit it right to even come close to damaging it.
You people are very childish or just dumb as hell, there was a study which point out the best way to use nuclear weapons on those sites was to hit the enters/exits WHICH they mention they wouldn’t need to use nuclear weapon for it. AND THAT IS IF they could reach those sites in the first place. Also, the fact that everyone to their mother wouldn’t care after if Israel get fleet because they used nuclear weapons.
The only good thing about nuclear weapon is to kill a lot of civilians – the end.
Give them one right away, they’re on our side!
It is not that easy and it would take good amount of time, and Russia haven’t said anything yet.
Iran will pay for it, and get it the day and year they dont need it.
Clown Israel said they might give Ukraine their air defence systems – now if you had a brain cell you could understand what Russia doing right now. Matter of fact, didn’t some old Jews suck you cuck as a child and told you “we are the chosen one”? Your God have your back, ignore what happened during WWII or the fact most of the world dislike Zionists for very good reasons. Or the fact that Zionism is dying… you know what nvm.
Russia has showed its behaviour so many times, so everyone with more than 1 brain cell knows what Russia will be doing. I could set my alarm clock after Kremlin’s behaviour and reactions.
Stop talking to yourself muzlim……get real.
Hehhhehhhhaahah. wait and see. Winter is comming for esrael.
With international weapon’s sales. I would expect the Russian’s to sell anything slightly less efficient than what they have in their own stock.
The squatter scum can’t attack Iran at moment with its current defence systems, but somehow when the S400 arrives suddenly the squatters will be in a better position??
Never heard so much crap.
If you really knowd that what which weapons İran Have. You will not write here againe. So much. That you see from İran is only a head of iceberg. Very very strong and long range minyature nuc weapons they have. A few thousands. Radiation bombing too. I Hope peace for every one. But dont play with persian lions Tail. I say.
Ok Erik Nielson and JJ -ulla of muzlim fame……we’re onto you. Your muzlim shit ain’t flyin no more.
Junk comments here just like on Al-Bress TV site…….total nonsense.
is your dirty dhoti at Dalit dry cleaner?
I got you muzlim loser……stop talking to yourself. You do the same thing at Al-Bress TV. Fucking taliban site.
Russia must sell them to Iran and train the operators, Israel and US are arming UkraineRusdia must retaliate by arming Iran.
“Israel has been threatening Iran over its nuclear program for the last two decades.” The terrorist entity like a thug can only attack in the dark, against single targets that are not defended. The ZionaZi shit hole will NEVER attack a real army, not Hezbollah and not Iran directly, ever.
Soon Palestine and its rightful owners will be cured of the cancer of Xion.
