I disagree... in our entire history of the last 100 years foreign powers like USA and England HAVE changed again and again the direction of our development.. without Operation Ajax in 1953 Iran would be a Democracy 23 years before Spain.. in a way IRI, Revolution etc are all results or reactions to change of natural Evolution of our country by foreign powers.. and USA and UK still Keep destabilizing the Region... just since 1990's we had several foreign invasions, CIA false flag etc... and today middle east is a huge mess

let analyze the facts..culture of chaploosi or mozakrafat is a direct result of lack of education ... which is caused by lack of wealth and Democracy! who has again and again prevented Democracy to grow in third wold? who again and again caused Regime changes..who were responsible for destroying democracy in Chile 1973, Iran in 1953, I can bring you o many examples from south america, africa and middle east, how foreign powers prevent the wealth of those nations to be used for the local people..middle east is today probally in worst situation, cuz USA and some of their allies are afraid of grows of new global players like China, Russia or Brics countries, so USA and some western nstions want to keep the control over strategical energy recourses in middle east to be able to put pressure on potential new powers... ..middle east is since Lawrence of Arabia suffering year by year more under foreign interventions and as you see again and again foreign powers (specially USA and UK) are the major reason of backwardness in our region..calling the foreign powers as the root of problems of course doesn't mean that I would justify local dictators...

Iran Needs all possible technologies.. I'm also not a big fan of nuclear reactors, but I think it is important for IRAN to have acces to the Technology and have the know how ...once you have the know how than you can decide if you want build more reactors or you prefer more solar powerplants... I even think Iran should in future, maybe in time after IRI, even keep the idea of possesing WMD's alive as long countries like Pakistan or Israel have nuclear weapons... you can't disarm all people around yourself and than walk around as the only person with machine guns and RPG7

I nevere said just pay and buy...I said sign contracts to produce russian or chinese fighter jets inside IRAN...And yes with some 300-350 modern fighter jets in combination with big number of SAMs and radars on the ground you can make it very hard for any agressor to attack IRAN... If an agressor like USA or Israel would know that attacking IRAN by air might cause them losing 150-200 fighter jets, you can be 100% sure that atack wouldn't at all happen...Vietnamese airforce and airdefence shot down huge number of US-planes (with smart using of Russian SAMS and a small number of jets) remind you, back then Vietnam was't even able to produce weapns... Iran today produces lot of different types of weapons..a defending force has some Advantages, since the air battle would happen over your own territory and terrain, while the enemy has to fly long distance over your ground with fuel limitation and facing SAMS,radars and jets... Iran made good Progress in improving SAMs but in aviation Technology IRAN is far behind, so in this sector Investment and license production of Russian or Chinese fighter jets could be a starting point to create an iranian aviation and aerospace industry

Democracy can only survive if stability and sovereignty are already there... Else foreign powers can easiely destroy the Democracy... just look around the world,.. Chile had in 1973 a democratic government, which was easiely removed by CIA.... after fall of soviet unions, CIA took Advantage of weakness of Russia, lot of Dollars been spent on destabilizing Russia and Caucasus... Russia was about to fall apart... Look at so many other countries in third world... if you aren't strong, united, stable and Independent there would be no chance for Democracy to be Born... a plant can't grow in desert....

several european nations themselves were colonialists or have benefit from colonialism...but USA is the dominant power and Europeans often had to shot up and Keep silence... And one major reason that Europe isn't under pressure like middle east ist because unlike middle east there are no strategical ground natural resources in europe... But because of natural resources like oil, natural gas, gold etc countries in middle east and Africa will again and again under US-interventions...And by the way, even in european Democracies US-Force is often dominating..try to write an article in a newspaper in Gemany, Sweden or Finnland and criticize Israel, often it would been censored... Didn't you see how easiely USA forced the democratic Switzerland to give up their bank secert and even pay huge penalties to USA... majority of Germans are against US-troops and bases in Germany, can they vote against that?

domestic defence industry or a strong amry wouldn't stop IRAN from having functional infrastructure... lack of Democracy and corruption inside and sanctions from outside are the main reasons for those negative trends... so if you want more money for infrastructure and education than you have to fight against corruption,dictatorship and sanctions, but please don't join those forces, which wish to weaken our armed forces and defence industry.. when it Comes to defence industry and armed forces it is not a political or ideological question...for long therm strategical interessts of IRAN as an Independent sovereign nation stability and strong defence capabilities are a must....

That is a good question and I found this video for you. The thing is is like comparing apples to orange. Russian Iranian American here(didn't know I was part Russian until recently). So the F22 is on it's 5th generation and Lockheed Martin put a ton of money in R&D. In 1997, they built 195 F22's, at a cost of $350,000,000. Russian SU 35 was first developed in 98 but not used until the Russian Air show in 07. The F22 has a top speed of 1500 MPH/2414KPH and range is 1840mph. The SU 1491MPH/1940, range 1940. They both have their advantages and disadvnages. American F22 has a bit more fire power than the SU35 but in a dog fight, the SU35 is more manuverable

Ali Europe brought up some good points this will help Iran's air force but stealth is overrated. We also need to develope our air defenses, radar etc. I found this video that I thought was very interesting and that is where I got these stats from. Na zdrovie Slava Rassia, Iran Ypa! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VeqGKSv4jvM

Ali_Europe 01-30-2018 02:14 PM

Re: Important: Iran and Russia Closer to Su-30 Deal
 
Keano jan, well as I said before Stealth is a Little overrated..Sure stealth technology has its benefits (specially if an airforce wants to attack a foreign territory .. but Iran isnt a world power like USA, Russia, china which Needs their airforce to Project power outside their territories. Iran isn't also following any imperial agressive politics.. Iran's Airforce key duty is to defend IRAN's sky and supporting the airdefence Units like S-300 or Bavar on ground...
it is also important to explain what stealth Technology exactly does... it doesn't make a fighter jet disapear, it makes it harder to detect...the shape is designed to reduce the amount of radar waves which would be reflected back to radar stations or even absorb some of radar waves by using high tech materials and even Special paints to make the radar cross section smaller.


well, but in last few years radar Technology also improved a lot and newer softwares can even analyze the reflecting waves of different radars and even detect stealth jets...Russians air defence Units even made a smart trich by combination of different type of radars (Doppler radar and impulse radar, so each radar cover the weakness of the other system)... another Problem for stealth Technology is the extremly high maintainance costs (that's why USA ended F-22 Programm by less than 200 jets). In therm of air foce of future different nations follow different strategies..USA has invested alot in stealth cuz the major role of their airforce is to attacking foreing nations so the main goal was to make the attacking plane be harder to detect... russian follows a different strategy... Russians have started to develop a jet with stealth capability (SU-50) but at same time to Keep the cost under control, they also work hard on improve the radar systems and add stronger jammers to some of their conventional jets like Mi-35 or SU-35

Mig 35 radar for example has some almost unbelivable performance:
offers a wider range of operating frequencies, providing better resistance to electronic countermeasures (ECM)s, extended detection range The FGA-35 radar with initial stage performance of a 200 km detection range for 3m2 RCS target. Later detection range was raised up to 250 km. It can track up to 30 targets at any time, engaging up to 6 air targets at once, or 4 ground targets at once.

Su-35 radar is even almost 400 km range




So on both fields: stealth Technology and anti stealth measures a lot is going on and only future will prove which Technology would be the best answer... (specially if you look at huge debts of countries like USA, the question would also e how long such arm races can run)

But let be back to IRAN: Iran isn't USA or Russia or China and the major goal of IRAN isn't to join an arm race... IRAN's major goal is to protect IRAN's long therm strategical interessts and defend IRan's stability...

So no matter whyt type of government in long therm would ruling Iran, defence would be important...

But since Iran's major focus is defending and not conquering, Iran can use smart the benefits of being in a defence position:

- combination of airforce and air defence
- using smart the landscape and size of Iran in a defence doctrine
- make it as hard as possible for any attacking air force to enter Iranian sky

As I mentioned in my earlier post, this is possible with an airforce of some 250-350 modern fighters combined with a big number of different air defence and radar Units on ground...

in several of defence fields the domestic industry can cover the Needs (Shahab missiles, iranian rifles etc) but in aviation Technology we are still far behind the rest of world... and we can't Keep revers engineering 50 years old jets like F-5 to defend IRanain sky (it is like to start a race against a ferrari by driving a Peykan)

I agree with current iranian doctrine of domestic production to prevent dependence on foreign nations(Lessons from IRAN-Iraq war and sanctions). But for closing the gap a license production of a good fighter jet could be a game changer for Iran aviation techology... Sure Russians wouldn't share the secrets of their new stealth jet SU-50 with other nations. But even a modern none stealth jet like SU-30 could be a big advance and a big jump to improve both: Iran's defence capacities and IRAN's aviation industry

And it is also important that IRAN Needs to have several walls of sky defence: a good airforce combined with good connected air defence Units on them

in therm of air defnce Iran capacity has improved

Re: Important: Iran and Russia Closer to Su-30 Deal
 
Ali Europe jan, you are right a stealth fighter does not make it disappear, it makes it harder to detect with radar. Coming from a military background here is what I believe Iran should do. The SU 30 is a good quality plane, and the SU35 stacks up well with it's American counterpart, the F22. You also mentioned USAF, Russian AF, and Chinese AF. You are also correct on that, they need their AF to be massive and strong so they can flex their military muscle.

What Iran needs to do is defend it's skies but we need to have a good Army, Navy, and Air Force. We have a decent Army but the Navy and Air Force need work but it's not Iran's fault. The sanctions have set Iran's Navy and Air Force back. I think we need to do things like build up our air defense and you do not necessarily need planes for that. Developing our sonar/radar system is very important. This way we can detect an enemy plane and you can always use SAM's and Radar, to shoot down planes. That is how Vietnam were successful in neutralizing the mighty USAF. I think it would be wise to do a combination of asking help from the Russians, and also building planes on our own. We are NOT going to be USA, Russia or China for a long time but what we can do is build up our military defense and protect our skies.

I hope you are doing well, I have not spoken to you in years. I shall patiently wait for your reply. I like what you have to say, when it comes to these things. Did you do any type of military service in Iran or Switzerland by any chance? I am getting the vibe that you have some sort of military training.W If I got that wrong then my bad. Once again, I shall patiently wait for your reply, I wanted to give this some thought before I replied to you.

exactly.. specially some people tend to forget that Iranian airforce doesn't Need to face US-Airforce over Oman sea or international water...(of course Iran can never have an airforce which could survive an air war vs a superpower airforce like USA, countries like USA, russia etc own thousends of jets etc..) But in a defender position Iran has lot of benefits(own airforce has the support of domestic airdefence Units and ground rader, can any time land and renew weapons and fuel, knows the landscapes etc..) while a foreign airforce has by any attack over a large country like IRAN face few dangers at same time SAMs, intercepotors, fuel limitation since any dogfight or escaping SAMS cost even more fuel and to get and to find any important Target in IRAN any enemy Needs to fly quite long distances(Iran isn't Kuwait, Iran is a huge country with lot of mountains, Iran's nature and landscape is another positive factor for IRAN's armed forces ) .. So Iran doesn't necessary Need to spend its entire budget on buying huge number of jets or even buying expensive Stealth fighters.. but more to how use ist budget smart and effective.. Remind you Americans lost over Vietnam huge number of jets (although for sure US-Airforce was lot stronger than Vietnames Airforce).. it is similar to a fight between a bear and wolverine.. for sure the bear is stronger, but the wolverine act extremly aggressive and try to scare or even bite the bear so the bear just even wouldnt feel comfortable to attack him and focus on an easier meal..Iran would not face USA in a full scale war with nuclear weaons etc(such wars are only possible among super powers).. So the big danger for Iran is larger air attacks by USA or Israel to destroy important industrial facilities(power plants, reactors etc)... So Iran has to focus on how you can maximize the pain for an agressor, so the Aggressor would give up the idea cuz of potential big loses... that's what we can call a wolverin tactic

here a wolverine scares a cougar
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZGvHQU71_Rk


although a lion is lot stronger than a Badger, it takes 6 lions to kill a badger(cuz animal smart aggressive behaviour)
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NvlalDNxccw

[Black]the only big Problem is that cuz of Russia any contract between IRan with russia or China wouldn't be possible before 2020... so if IRAN is smart they would already now start to select a group of pilots and technicians to be send to Russia or China for training, so once the license production deal is signed, the rebuilding of airforce would move fast Forward....[Black]

well, for sure IRAN can't follow the policy of Saudi Arabia or Shah by investing huge amount of money and just "buying" expensive weapons..As mentioned before strong dependence on foreign products, make you very vulnerable to Sanctions (suddenly entire fleet of jets could be grounded).. and Iran has other priorities like fighting poverty or improving the education...so not the entire budget can be spend on weapons.. At same time focusing only on one single force like air defence is risky... a succesfull defends Need a combined use of forces... I think Iran air defence and ground radars really improved a lot.. but I think a decent airforce is also needed... sure it doesn't Need to be a super expensive Airforce... But license production of a good fighter jet like SU-30 or Mig-35 could bring following benefits for IRAN a) air force would be a support to SAMs and Radars to a combined defence of IRAN's sky b) it would be a big push to modernize IRAN aviation industry, that's how chinese startet in 1960's by license production of russian production till they were step by step improved their capabilities to have own domestic designs... c) an iranian aviation industry would also be an important ecconomical gain for IRAN, lot of Young iranians from enginners to technicians would found new job offers and aviation indutrty would also create more demand for other industries(tire companies, metal industry, etc) d) Having modern aviation industry inside IRAN would also allow Iran even in case of future sanctions being able to overhaul, repair or even modernize the airforce during potential conflicts

Sherwin jan thanks for the Kind words, well long time not Hearing from IK Family..it is really great that Jashar restart IK(Big thanks to him for the great work) well, several years are gone since old times in IK.... getting older and having more Grey hairs

Sherwin 01-31-2018 04:13 PM

Re: Important: Iran and Russia Closer to Su-30 Deal
 
Well said Ali Europe jan and I love your Bear and Wolverine analogy. The Wolverine is small but a Wolverine is super aggresssive and can kill a predator 5 to 6 times it's size. On Iran's topography, that gives us a huge advantage, we are not Kuwait or Saudi Arabia, where it is just a flat desert, Iran is very mountainous, especially by where some of my family are, in the East Azerbaijan region. I also realize that our contract with Russia will not go into affect until 2020 so we better start developing our air defenses. I am glad you also mentioned Vietnam. How were the Vietcong able to shoot down many US Planes, it is estimated Americans lost one out of every 9 planes. It is simple they used SAMS Surface to Air missiles. and Iran can easily develop those.

Like in math or science, there is more than one variable factor. It needs to be a combination of us developing our air and naval defenses, plus getting some outside help from Russia. However, as John Wooden of UCLA once said, "A man who fails to prepare is preparing to fail." We cannot afford to sit on our rear end and do NOTHING for the next two years, until Russia comes to the rescue. We need to develop our air defenses and then if you want to get some more sophisticated planes from Russia, go ahead, at least you are not putting all of your eggs in one basket.

I also agree that the Shah's strategy of buying expensive weapons, planes etc is not the right strategy Iran should take. We should build up our Air and Naval defenses. We will never be USA, Russia or China because we do not have the same resources, as the big boys. but the good news is USA is not planning on attacking Iran, anytime soon. They are not going to fly over our air spaces and start bombing us. They also are trying to somewhat normalize relations between Russia and they know that Slava Russians, like Putin, and the rest in the Russian Federation will not be happy about that.

Finally, it is great to be back home with FAMILY. There is no place like home I have been to ISP and that is cool do not get me wrong but this is different. IK is a very special place to me and I know you, along with others feel the same way. I have said this before and I will say it again, "Jashar jan, damet garm aziz," he took it on his own accord to save IK. Perjad jan, thank you for accepting Jashar jan's proposal. I feel like right now we are having a family reunion, like when I visit family in Germany or Russia. I am very happy right now, 2009 was a tough year because not only I had to transition from civilian to military life, I had to say goodbye to my family. That was harder than boot camp and officer candidacy school because that hit me like a dagger in the heart. I hope you and everyone here are doing well. What I love about IK is family will not agree with everything but we even disagree with CLASS and DIGNITY. Other places, insults, ad homenim attacks, it is uncouth and a bad atmosphere. The only way we can grow as family and LEARN from one another and our unique experiences is if we take the time to LISTEN. I am relieved you are doing well dear old friend and thank you for your kind words, everyone. If there is anything I can do for anyone here, do not hesitate to PM or if you just want to chat it up about Team e Melli. Jashar jan damet garm, PERFECT TIMING.

I remember and that is fine by me, and I see what you are saying. Just because you have been critical of the USA or the Shah does not make you pro IR. I will share a personal story, a few years ago I discovered I am part Russian on my moms side(and German). I took the time to learn the language and understand a new culture and that helped me remove my prejudice. Just because I love Russia does not mean that I am a traitor, Communist or anti American.
I served my country, for those who would like to criticize, if you feel that strongly, put your money where your mouth is and join the armed forces. There are those who just talk and there are those who do something about it. I know exactly where you are coming from and I will support you. If anyone gives you or anyone a hard time for a difference of opinion, you know me I cannot stay silent. No matter what your political or religious beliefs are, like you said, we need to think about the long run. Afghanistan, Iraq, Lybia, Syria, Yemen are visible threats, that are all near by us.

When you attack someone, you are fighting a losing battle. If you lose, you go home but if they lose, they lose their country. Take a look at big USA and Russia, what happened when they went into Afghanistan? They got their rear ends handed to them, same thing when USA went to Vietnam. Also, same thing when Napoleon and Hitler decided it was a brilliant idea to attack Mother Russia on her own soil. Never underestimate the will of your enemy, if you do that, you already lost. After the Russians underestimated the Afghans, a Field Marshal said, "In life, there are thee things you must fear, a Tiger's paw, a snakes venom, and an Afghan's vengeance." Too smart too late my friend. The field Marshal tried to warn GWB and said, 'If you send boots to the ground, prepare to build a lot of coffins."

Thank you Keano jan and Ali jan is knowledgeable about the military, I was just adding some information. I would expect your knowledge of the military to be limited because you were not in any military, at least not to my knowledge. The only way we can grow as a family is to exchange ideas so we get educated. You and others have educated me about topics I was unfamiliar with in the past and I greatly appreciate it. There is a saying we have in the Navy which I really liked, "One team, one fight." I feel the same way about our IK family.
