Sukhoi SU-35IQ Asifat al Turab (Sandstorm)

Recommended Posts

After three conflicts with heavy losses, the iraqi air force got almost completely destroyed. The fall of Saddam Hussein and the political system turning from dictatorship to democracy made it necessary to accept foreign help in reconstructing the country. This also meant the rebuilding of the air force.

 

In this matter, a meeting of actual british prime minister and his colleague in the iraqi government took place in London, where a contract was meant to be signed about the purchase of 60 new, to the needs of the iraqi air force adapted, Typhoons. Along with the Typhoons, Iraq signed a contract with Russia for the purchase of 60 Super Flanker with the designation SU-35IQ Asifat al Turab (Sandstorm).

 

These Super Flankers are supposed to be delivered in 2012 tremendously enhancing the iraqi interception capabilities.

The digital camo of the Flanker is used with special allowance of the US government, which recognized a great similarity to their own camo

The Iraqis just bought 18 F-16C Block 52s. Would be cool to see them.

 

Also, you're using the old Ba'athist Iraqi flag. The new Iraqi flag looks like this:

I know that, but a colleague of mine said that the iraqi people likes the older flag more. He is iraqi.

The downloadable version will have both flags in it, so everyone can choose the one he likes most.

Heh. Is your colleague a Sunni? The three stars represent Saddam, in the view of many. The Shi'a and Kurds, who make up about 90% of the population together, detest that flag.

 

Thanks for the option to have both, though.

Yes, 90%. Maybe as low as 80%, but the vast majority are not Sunnis, nevermind Ba'athists. A good chunk of the Sunnis left in Iraq are Kurds, not Arabs. That demographic info is SWAG - Iraq hasn't had a real census since the '50s, and far more Sunnis have left the country since 2003 than any other demographic.

 

Or don't believe me. Whatever. Not like Wiki's ever been wrong.
