Military equipments

Iran should enhance his military equipments to face a future Trump/Clinton presidency.

We started to get some S300 from Russia. IMO, we should buy some Sukhoi Su30 plane ASAP.

Here is a thread for news and discussion about it.

I might be wrong but we are under arms embargo, no new deals regarding military equipments can be made with any country, and under the JCPOA the arms ebargo wont be lifted before 2020 something.

Iran's S-300 Missile Systems Underscore Its 'Power and Ability to Defend Itself'

Russian-made S-300 air defense systems will allow Iran to bolster its military and improve its image, Ahmad Vakhshiteh, chief editor of Iranian analytical site RussiaViewer, told Sputnik Persian.

In an interview with Sputnik Persian, Ahmad Vakhshiteh, chief editor of the Iranian political analysis site RussiaViewer, said that the S-300 air defense systems will help Tehran deal with a whole array of issues related to both its military and perceptions of the country abroad.

The interview came after it was reported this week that Russia had fulfilled its contract to deliver S-300 long-range surface-to-air missile systems to Iran.

He recalled that in the run-up to the delivery of the S-300 systems, Iran had managed to develop a domestically made analogue of the S-300, producing a small amount of what Vakhshiteh described as an experimental series of cloned missile systems.

Now that the S-300 systems have been sent by Russia in accordance with the agreement, they will enter service with the Iranian army and will be showcased during the country's military parades, according to Vakhshiteh.

Touching upon the two countries' cooperation in the development of weapons, he noted that a number of global challenges and threats have prompted Moscow and Tehran to expand their partnership, which he said has reached a new level in the past several years.

Vakhshiteh referred to the "joint military action in Syria", saying that Russia and Iran will continue to boost this cooperation because security in Syria will help maintain security throughout the Middle East and beyond.

On Thursday, the head of Russia's Federal Service for Military-Technical Cooperation said that Russia has finished executing a contract to supply Iran with divisions of S-300 air defense systems.

"All divisions have been supplied," Alexander Fomin told RIA Novosti.

On April 11, the Iranian Foreign Ministry announced that Russia had made the first contracted delivery of the S-300 systems as scheduled.

The $900-million contract to deliver five Russian S-300 systems to Iran was signed in 2007. It was suspended after the adoption of UN Security Council sanctions agaisnt Iran in mid-2010. In April 2015, Russia resumed talks to deliver the S-300 air defense weaponry following an agreement on the Iranian nuclear program.

Why? US and Europe are better societies and have better technology.

5 million Iranians live in the West. How many live in Russia and China?

I am talking about military. Of course, Iran should side with the usa but corrupt, imcompetent and dumb politicians in the usa (and as consequences in Iran) will never let this. Eurooe follow blindly the usa either because of politics or because of the business and sanctions fear.

If Iran dont want to be an easy target like iraq, it should strenghten its ties with alternative powers

Iran Starts Construction of 3 Naval Bases Along Southeastern Coast

Quote:
MOSCOW (Sputnik) – The construction of three naval bases and two naval zones has been launched in Makran, Sayyari said at a press conference as cited by Iran's Tasnim news agency.

The authorities started to pay special attention to the development of the Makran coast after Iran's Supreme Leader Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei marked it as one of the priority tasks in 2014, according to the media. In 2015, China and Iran agreed to build two new nuclear stations in the region. The Iranian Navy has been on watch in the Gulf of Aden since November 2008 as Somali pirates hijacked a cargo ship chartered by Iran to carry wheat off the coast of Yemen.

What do you mean better societies? How does the west have better society exactly? In any case, what does that have to do with military alliances?

And they don't have better military technology than Russia. Russia's Sukhoi and MiG Jets and Mil helicopters are among the ultimate military aircraft you can buy. Their S400, S300 and Buk anti-aircraft systems are completely unrivalled by anything the west makes.
If you want the best military technology, you go straight to Moscow.

The west may have some good stuff too. But they will pick and choose what second rate, end of line stuff they decide they are allowed to sell you (if anything) and they will rip you off for it. And in any military alliance with them, Iran would only be a subordinate pawn.

If Iran is serious about it's place in the world, membership of the SCO is the only way to go.

In terms of freedoms and openness.

Regarding military, the Patriot system is highly advanced and so is the iron dome the US designed for Israel. I am not sure based on what you say Russian technology is more advanced.

Also it took us 10 years to get S300 and if Russia would easily sell where are the 3400s, Buks, Migs and Sukhois?

Agree the lobbies make it hard and the US system is corrupt.

But Iran could also recognize Israel and tone things down. At the end of the day Israel and The West are natural allies of Shia against Arabs and Sunnis.
