"Iran says it is looking into a plan to jointly produce Sukhoi Superjet 100 (SSJ 100) airplanes with Russia – what could take the Islamic Republic to the club of global plane makers if materialized. Iran’s Minister of Industry, Mining and Trade Mohammad-Reza Ne’matzadeh told reporters in Moscow that Iran has already started talks with Russian over the plan. 'Now the talks regarding a joint manufacture of this airplane are underway, but there are no results yet,' Ne’matzadeh told reporters on the sidelines of the St. Petersburg Economic Forum."(Press TV, “Iran, Russia eyeing Sukhoi Superjet deal,” 6/16/2016)

"Iran plans to buy the Sukhoi Su-30SM fighters, the Mil Mi-8 and the Mil Mi-17 helicopters, as well as other weapons from Russia in an arms deal worth more than $8 billion, the Kommersant newspaper reported, citing unnamed sources. 'Tehran has already sent a list of military hardware that Iranian Armed Forces would like to purchase from Moscow,' the daily added, saying that the Russian Ministry of Defense, the Russian government and the Kremlin have already seen the list. The Iranians allegedly want to buy the Sukhoi Su-30SM multirole fighters, the Yakovlev Yak-130 advanced jet trainer and light attack aircraft, the Mil Mi-8 and Mil Mi-17 transport helicopters, as well as the K-300P Bastion-P mobile coastal defense missile systems, frigates and diesel-electric submarines. 'The addition of any Su-30 variant would greatly increase the capabilities of the Iranian air force, which is mostly equipped with an antiquated mix of American-, Russian- and Chinese-built hardware,' defense expert Dave Majumdar wrote for the National Interest." (Sputnik, “Su-30s, Mi-8s: Iran Considers Inking $8 Billion Arms Deal With Russia,” 2/16/2016)
