Moscow plans to sell Iran state-of-the-art warplanes, tanks and missile systems, Russian state media said Wednesday – a haul that could reportedly total up to $8 billion. The deal to sell an unspecified number of Sukhoi Su-30SM fighter jets to Tehran could be sealed by the end of the year, according to RIA Novosti. The news agency cited an unnamed Russian defense official.
