The customized version of Superjet 100 assumes a significant increase in the share of Russian components in the design of the aircraft to eliminate the need to obtain US approval

Iran Aseman and Iran Air Tours signed letters of intent on Thursday with Sukhoi Civil Aircraft Company at Turkey’s Eurasia Airshow, calling for the delivery of a customized version of the Superjet 100 version dubbed RRJ95R from 2020 to 2022-23. Each carrier wants 20 aircraft.
The RRJ95R would contain markedly less foreign content while keeping the SSJ100’s Powerjet SaM.146 turbofans supplied by a partnership between France’s Safran and Russia’s NPO Saturn. 
The manufacturer expects both airlines to convert their LOIs to firm orders by the end of the year, Aviation International News reported.
“We intend to increase the share of Russian-made items by 10-15%,” SCAC CEO Alexander Roubstov told journalists at the show.
