- The Islamic Republic of Iran Air Force (IRIAF) plans to purchase Russian Su-35 Flanker-E fighter jets, according to its commander, Brigadier General Hamid Vahedi. It would constitute Iran’s biggest acquisition of fighter aircraft in over 30 years if authorized.
- Vahedi also clarified that the IRIAF now wants Su-35s rather than Su-30s. Since late 2021, there have been rumors that Iran would buy 24 Su-35s Russia had initially built for Egypt.
