Iran to Buy Tupolev’s

Russia announced today that it will sell 130 Tupolev civilian aircrafts to Iran. The announcement came shortly after Russia delivered the first shipment of nuclear fuel to Iran for its Bushehr plant.

Tupolev aircraft are unpopular with the Iranian public due to their high rate of fatal accidents in recent years.

Tatarstan’s Garbonov plant will manufacture the 130 Tupolev 214 and 334 for Iran.

If I'm not mistaken, part of the production may be undertaken by Iranian aerospace in Iran.
