QUOTE: Iran Aircraft Mfg. Company (HESA) is negotiating with Armenia over the sale of 3 Iran-140 turboprop aircrafts

Iran-140 offers certain advantages that compensates for the larger capacity of jet planes and presents the buyers with more profitability in the long run
turboprop consumes 500 to 600 kgs of fuel per hour compared to 2.2 tons of Fokker 100’s consumption.

the contract to sell 3 Iran-140s at the cost of $27m to Sudan will soon be going into effect

What exactly is the Iran-140? Did the Iranians develop it themselves? How does it look like?
Is it still in development or already flying? How many are on order and, if flying, how many are delivered? Which airlines are flying it or are going to fly it? Only Iranian airlines?

I haven't even seen an Iranian airline flying that a/c. Iran, Iran Aseman, and Saha fly mainly Boeings.

Quoting AMSSFO (Thread starter):
What exactly is the Iran-140?

An Iranian-built version of the Antonov An-140. The An-140 is a 50-seat turboprob which is intended to replace the aging fleet of An-24/26.
It is adapted to rough operating conditions in the former Soviet Union/Asia, Africa and south America.
Sales of the An-140 have been made to a Libyan (?) airline, apart from various Russian and Ukrainian customers.

Just go to www.antonov.com for more information.

Exceptions confirm the rule.

Its basically an Iranian version of the Antonov 140. Has some slight changes in a few areas including avionics, making use of European (French) systems instead.

The Iran-140 is a kit-built AN-140 assembled in Iran.

It's unclear who Armenia is?!?!? The state owned Armenian Airlines doesn't exist anymore and Armavia is the major airline and considered as the flag carrier these days.
Armavia did lease 3 ATR-42s a year and a half ago but returned them all back claiming it didn't fit (and meet) their needs and expectations. Since the airline has used leased An-24s, Tu-134s and lately Yak-42s instead.
The A320s though are Armavia's backbone and it's logical that they may be looking for regionals from different manufacturers, and Iran-140 could be one of them.
Of course, if by Armenia the article indeed means Armavia.
