I trust Debka almost as far as I can throw my truck. I certainly wouldn't call them MSM though, although they do as good fact checking as the MSM
The transaction runs contrary to the terms of the nuclear accord the six world powers and Iran signed in Vienna earlier this month.
Not according to the few other sources talking about it.
These tanker planes can simultaneously refuel six to eight warplanes.
They're joking right? No aircraft built could simultaneously refuel 6-8 warplanes. It could refuel a GROUP of 6-8 maybe and depending on how far
they're going, but not simultaneously. Even using it to transfer fuel to parked aircraft it can only refuel 4 at a time.
There aren't even 100 of the type in service yet.
While I have no doubt the total number of aircraft ordered is way inflated, I also suspect that Iran HAS ordered some aircraft. They'd be almost crazy
not to have already ordered them for later delivery.
