I wonder why Russia wouldn't offer more aircraft to the Iranians for export, but I guess these F-14s will still give the US Navy and Airforce a hard time in a US-Iran war

Because the UN (of which Russia is part of) has embargoed Iran, and eberyone (i.e. Foxnews and Friends) knows that US F-22s would pwn these Iranian F-14s in a minute.

Well is is said that Iran Allegedly purchased 250 Su-30 MKM and 20 Il-78 MKI aerial tankers from Russia. Something this picture supports: .

And IDK about Raptors, but F-14 can pwn US F-15/16/18 quite easily with their ultra-long range AIM-54 Phoenix and Sedjil missile which is basically a airborne version of the MIM-23 Hawk. .

I wonder how many AIM-54s the Iranians have left, they did extensively used the F-14 in the Iran-Iraq war and I'd think military exercises would drain the AIM-54 reserves even further.

And it's also a pity that the USN decided to retire it's own fleet of F-14s, would be interesting to see the American and Iranian F-14s going at each other

According to some reports, they have made an indigenous version that has the same range and capability of the Phoenix, it's called Sattar-4.

Here is the Sattar-4(The one in background, foreground is the Sedjil)

And MIM-23 Hawk. Both the Sedjil and Sattar series are seems to be created from combining elements form those two systems. The Sattar series is likely to supplement/replace the phoenix and all other foreign missiles in general service while the Sedjil appears to be an extreme-range missile like the Vympel R-37 optimized to shoot down targets like AWACS and and other C4ISTAR aircraft whilst keeping the launch platform out of range of any fighters that might be protecting the target.

So what are they used in the Iran-Iraq war? Paper planes? Or are you saying they could mass produced these fighter long before HESA was established?

Do me a favor and do some proper research. Whoever you are.

Somehow This reminds me of the P-40 at the haleiwa field in the attack of the pearl harbor
