ISW analysts believe that Iran could have already transferred its UAVs to Moscow

ISW believes that Iran could have already transferred its UAVs to Russia, hoping to receive the Su-35 from the Russian Federation in return.



This is published by ISW on its website.

Unconfirmed reports on social media suggest that Iran may have sent the first batch of drones to Russia and sent pilots and maintenance personnel to train on the Russian Su-35, potentially suggesting that Iran may try to use recent aviation agreements to facilitate the acquisition of Russian combat technology, says the ISW review.

Earlier, the American intelligence service, citing unofficial Iranian sources, also claimed that Iran sent a batch of UAVs to Russia.

If true, this statement suggests that Iran may receive Russian Su-35 aircraft in exchange for drones, which could be part of an agreement signed between Moscow and Tehran on July 26, ISW emphasizes.

Recall that earlier Putin visited Iran, but the Kremlin stated that Putin did not discuss the supply of combat drones with Iranian representatives.
