If Iran were to purchase all 64 Russian Su-35 “war gods,” their Air Force’s might would increase dramatically.

According to Avia, a Russian news agency, Iran wants to buy 64 Su-35 “war gods” from Russia to outfit five air squadrons. Transactions valued at up to ten billion US dollars may take place.

According to Russian media, Iran plans to purchase 64 “war gods” from Russia to equip five aviation squadrons for the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC).

“Commander of the Islamic Republic’s Air Force Hamid Vahedi revealed that Iran is negotiating with Russia to purchase Su-35 fighter fighters. The acquisition of Su-35 fighter jets is also planned, according to Brigadier General Hamid Vahedi “Report by Avia.

Iran’s acquisition of many Russian Su-35 generation 4++ fighters will give it indisputable military superiority in the Middle East.

 There may be as much as $10 billion involved in this deal to purchase Su-35 combat jets from Russia. According to reports from Russian media, the first Su-35s might be on their way to Iran before the year’s end.

The Sukhoi Su-35, also called the Flanker-E+ by NATO, is a heavy fighter plane with two engines and a long-range the Sukhoi Military Aircraft Corporation made that. It was based on the design of the Su-27 Flanker from the time of the Cold War to face the American F-15 Eagle.

The first model was shown at the Farnborough International Airshow in the UK in 1992, and the Russian Air Force has been using it since 1995.

With the help of new technologies, Sukhoi began to make the Su-35 a 4.5-generation fighter around the middle of the 2000s.

The Russian side claimed that upgrades to the Su-35’s outward appearance and internal components improved the aircraft’s performance in combat.

The Su-35 is an upgraded version of the Su-27 and Su-30, distinguished by its larger nose, heavier use of carbon fiber and lithium-aluminum alloys in the fuselage structure, and broader and squarer tail fins; the airframe is predominantly built of lightweight titanium.

Su-35 employs a revolutionary 3-dimensional vector thruster Saturn AL-41F1S (also known as 117S), which combines innovative low-pressure and high-pressure turbine technology with two laser detectors on either side of the aircraft’s nose that can detect laser projectors at a range of 30 kilometers. Accurate digital control system. SDU-D increases overall thrust by 16%.

The Su-35’s AL-41F1S engine has a movable nozzle that assists the rudders, allowing the plane to fly in a very tight circle, evade missiles, and win dogfights.

However, it cannot fly at supersonic speeds; when accelerating, it still has to use the afterburner mode.

The Su-35 has a maximum altitude of 18,000 meters, making it par with the F-15 and F-22 and 3,500 meters above the F/A-18E/F Super Hornet, the Rafale, and the F-35.

With a maximum speed of Mach 2.25 at a high altitude, the Su-35 has a 22% larger fuel capacity than the Su-27 (equal to F-22 and faster than F-35 and F-16). Without aerial refueling, its fighting range is 1,700 kilometers.

When carrying two extra fuel tanks, the flight range reaches 4,500km; Su-35 can refuel in the air, and radar reflectivity (RCS) is only 1-3 m2. The Su-35 has 12 weapon hangers that help them carry 8 tons of weapons.

The Su-35 can use the R-77 Vympel missile with a range of up to 175km, equivalent to the US AIM-120 missile. Su-35 is also equipped with medium-range R-27 and long-range R-37 missiles used to destroy early warning aircraft (AWAC), electronic warfare (EW), and aerial refueling.

In close-range air combat, the Su-35 uses an infrared-guided missile R-73 Vympel capable of capturing targets with a sensor mounted on the pilot’s helmet; missile probes can “see” the target at an angle of 60°; 300m – 30km range; and a 30mm caliber cannon with 150 rounds of ammunition.

The IRBIS -E semi-active phased array radar equipped on the Su-35 has a 240° scanning capability, a detection distance of 400 km for strategic bomber targets and 90 km for tactical aircraft.

Radar can lock up to 30 different targets, including eight ones that can be locked almost continuously with enough accuracy to destroy with medium-range air-to-air missiles simultaneously with active probes.

This radar can fire two targets simultaneously with missiles with a semi-active probe. The Su-35 is equipped with the OLS-35 infrared search and track (IRST) system, which can simultaneously track four infrared signals with different short wavelengths.

There is no need to activate the search radar because the enemy aircraft will not be able to detect anything beyond 90 kilometers (the target’s tail) and 50 kilometers (the target’s front).

An infrared missile alarm system with six sensors in front of the fuselage covering all angles can detect man-portable air defense missiles, air-to-air missiles, and surface-to-air missiles within range.

The plane’s two laser detectors can see laser projectors up to 30 kilometers away. The Su-35 is also equipped with a powerful electronic jamming system called L175M Khibiny, which can be used to disrupt enemy radar transmissions.

Currently, Russia has upgraded several Su-35s to the Su-35S standard with enhanced avionics upgrades to meet the needs of modern warfare.
