If Russia declared war against Iran, who would win?
Most Helpful Guy
Iran get's most of it's weapons from Russia or China and it also has no backing from the West. And if they did go to war, Russia would invade by air over the Caspian Sea via choppers and planes. Anyway, they wouldn't aim to occupy Iran - too big for that. Instead they would destroy possible nuclear sites, imprison (or more likely shoot) the government and destroy other key military targets quickly and precisely - they wouldn't bother sending in troops to garrison cities. After that, they install a Russian friendly government that either becomes an even worse dictatorship or outright collapses because all of the country would be experiencing unrest and revolts and what not.1
