And then he died predictably... ALSO like a cornered rabbit.

Tell me more about these deadly predatory rabbits that are capable of killing their enemies when cornered.

And Iran is still flying F-14s to this day.
What other options could Iran go to then?
They could try buying Migs if they weren't so pissed off at the Russians. Lately, though, their main priority seems to be attempts to reverse engineer foreign technology to a capacity where they can manufacture it themselves.

I'm suddenly reminded of the Shatnerverse novel "Ashes of Eden" where the Federation first mothballed the Enterprise and then sold it to a bunch of colonists as part of their local militia. I'm thinking the Qualor-II depot might serve a similar purpose: it's an after-market junkyard where old Starships are held until somebody comes along and makes the Federation an offer. Arguably, that seems to be the case with those Vulcan ships; the only reason for the subterfuge seems to be the Romulans not wanting to leave a papertrail with the sale.
