And also about Su-35 i read southfront that said that Def minister Dehgan said he wants 18 Su-30 and 8 Su-35 from Russia but Russia insist to buy Su-27MS3

But they can be given to IRGC.

If Iran is going to operate fast jets of any kind, they should be in the hands of a well funded IRIAF. Handing them to the IRGC just means you have to fund a different service, it doesn't make the funding problem go away. Besides IRIAF already have the airbases and the infrastructure to host large numbers of fast jets (especially F-4s). Unless you want to hand IRIAF airbases to IRGC which is a bad idea.

IRGC are trusted military arm of the Mullahs so funding is less of a problem for them compared to IRIAF. IMO IRGC-AF should take up the air attack role solely with ~90 x Su-24MK2, MF-1EQ, Su-22M3/M4 can launch LACM, AShCM attacks on advancing enemy assets in PG from safe distance guarded by resurrected IRIAF comprising of Su-30SME, F-14AM, Mig-29 SMT+Mig-35, F-4E/D. Enemy planes will be met by layers of some 160-170 fighters of these types along with AEW. When TOT starts yielding out more numbers of Su-30SME then F-4E/D fleet can be given to IRGC-AF as well.
F-7N, F-5EF can be put in storage. They are burden.

And however certain the IRGC would be to get its budget, it would still eat into the budget of other services. The money has to come from somewhere.

Israel is doing that. Iranian allies and assets are exposed to Israeli air power. Iran and its allies need to come up with a joint program to create a potent fighter jet that can guard their militias and assets. This Azarakhsh/Saeghe/Kowsar program is perfect in sense that cost is low and they can provide air cover as well. I am thinking of final product of this F-5A/E/F R&D project.
