Iran Plans to Equip Home-Made Drones With New Air-Based Missiles

Iranian Defense Minister Brigadier General Hossein Dehqan announced the country's plans to equip its drones with the home-made powerful and high-precision air-based Nasr cruise missile, Iranian media reports.

“Using the air-based Nasr missile by the Army and the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) the Air Forces will remarkably increase their operational and tactical power,” he said.

As the Nasr missile is equipped with a high-precision radar allowing it to trace and intercept targets, it doesn’t need any backup and the fighter jet can leave the danger zone immediately.

Noting that the Nasr missile can be mounted on various types of fighter jets, the minister announced Iran's future plan to equip its home-made drones with the air-based missile.

Since March, the Iranian defense ministry has started the mass-delivery of different ballistic missiles, including the Qadr, Qiam, Fateh 110 and Khalij-e Fars missiles, as well as the Mersad air defense system to the IRGC and Khatam ol-Anbia Air Defense Base.

“These missiles can strike and destroy enemy targets with a high-precision capability and provide for a wide range of the Armed Forces’ needs to missiles with different ranges,” Dehqan said during the inaugural ceremony.

In recent years, Iran has made great progress in the defense sector and has become self-sufficient in essential military hardware and defense systems. The country has repeatedly made it clear that its military might is based on the state's defense and that it poses no threat to other countries.

Iran, Russia Start Talks on Sukhoi 30

TEHRAN (FNA)- Tehran and Moscow started talks on the supply of the Russian-made Sukhoi 30 fighter jets to Iran.
The talks were held on Tuesday on the sidelines of the MAKS 2015 air show in the town of Zhukovsky near Moscow during which Russian President Vladimir Putin and Iranian Vice-President for Science and Technology Sorena Sattari were present.

"Today, we visited different parts of the exhibition and the fighter jets' air show for three and a half hours accompanied by Mr. Putin which was a rare opportunity," Sattari told FNA yesterday.

"Putin showed that he is well aware of the military issues, knows the companies and products and spends time to get more familiar with them," he added.

Asked if the issue of purchasing Russia's Shkhoi 30 was raised during the visit, Sattari said, "We spoke about it but we didn’t discuss purchasing them and talks were mostly focused on the technological issues."

"You should ask issues related to purchasing (Sukhoi 30) from the defense ministry, and other groups like the trade teams should pursue the issue," he added.

The Sukhoi Su-30 is a twin-engine, two-seat supermaneuverable fighter aircraft developed by Russia's Sukhoi Aviation Corporation.

It is a multirole fighter for all-weather, air-to-air and air-to-surface deep interdiction missions.

Iran Mulls Russian Military Aircraft Purchase, Joint Space Projects

MOSCOW (Sputnik) – Iran is holding active talks with Russia on the purchase of at least two types of military aircraft, Iranian Vice President Sorena Sattari told the Russian Kommersant daily.

"The relevant talks are going well," Sattari said, adding that he cannot give any further details on the possible contract at this point.

The vice president also said that Tehran is mulling the purchase of the Russian Sukhoi Superjet 100 plane — a twin-engine regional passenger jet, which became available commercially in 2011.

"If Russia offers us [Iran] good financial terms, a lot of our airlines would be willing to take them [Superjet 100 aircraft]," he told Kommersant.

The sanctions imposed on the Iran by the United States in 1979 blocked Tehran from purchasing new airplanes and spare parts to repair the old ones. The lifting of anti-Iran sanctions, stipulated in the final agreement on Iran’s nuclear program reached in July, will give Tehran a chance to renew its aircraft fleet.

On Thursday, Russian Deputy Minister of Industry and Trade Andrei Boginsky told journalists at the MAKS-2015 air show outside Moscow that Iran is considering purchasing dozens of Russian Sukhoi Superjet 100 aircraft.

According to Sattari, Iran is also interested in using Russian rocket carriers to launch satellites into orbit.

"It is important that this is done as part of joint projects. That is, so that we jointly develop and create satellites and cooperate in the sphere of space rocket construction," Iran’s Vice President told the Kommersant newspaper.

Sattari stressed that Russia has no competitors in the sphere of space technology.
