Air Tanker.

This is coolbert:

Yet more and even worse alarmist headlines courtesy of DEBKAfile:

"Iran buys 100 Russian refueling aircraft for its air force to reach any point in the Mid East" 

. . . .

 "Secretary of State John Kerry can expect some really hard questions during his trip on exactly how the Vienna accord makes the region safer, when Iran’s first act after signing is to arm itself with a huge fleet of Russian in-flight fuel tankers to expand and strengthen its range and power for aerial aggression."

Il-78 able to re-fuel multiple numbers of warplanes simultaneously.
I think the initial, intuitive and instantaneous response to that DEBKAfile headline is that the number of one hundred [100] air refueling tankers is much too great. Allegedly this is the Il-78 MIDAS Russian aircraft. Iran suddenly their coffers swollen with cash and the first thing they do is buy advanced military hardware FROM ONE OF THE PARTIES A SIGNATORY TO THE RECENTLY ARRIVED AT NUCLEAR ACCORD?

Secretary Kerry WILL have a lot of explaining to do.
