International Military - Although several times failed to be exported, the Su-35 will eventually sell well. This is because Iran intends to acquire the 24 Sukhoi Su-35 Flankers. Commander of the Air Force of the Islamic Republic of Iran [IRIAF] Brigadier General Hamid Vahedi has officially announced that Iran will purchase the jet. That's what the Turkish online portal wrote in its Sunday edition.

Quoted from Bulgarian Military, according to Turkish sources, Iran is ready to buy 24 Sukhoi Su-35 Flanker-E fighter jets ordered by Egypt from Russia. Even so, Russia did not send it. It is believed that after this purchase, Iran will make a second purchase of another 36 Russian aircraft carriers.

The Turkish publication also claims that after the purchase of the first 24 warplanes, Tehran and Moscow can sit at the negotiating table for the production of 36 warplanes in Iran. Turkish sources claim that 30 Iranian pilots are already in Russia and are expected to undergo training.

Egypt ordered 24 Sukhoi Su-35 Flanker-E fighter jets in early 2019, last March. The planes are already in production but are still sitting in the Sukhoi hangar. There are two main versions of why Egypt did not accept it. One version is a technical malfunction that prevented Egypt from fulfilling the contract. This version is impossible, because technical errors are always present in every production, and are fixed, even if the delivery period is extended.

The second version is Egypt's refusal to pay for the delivery of 24 fighters. Such resistance may be dictated by Cairo's fear of Washington not imposing heavy economic sanctions under the CAATSA law. Despite the claims, it is not yet known whether Egypt actually canceled the order.
