Iran Shows Footage of Indiginous Qaher F-313 'Stealth Fighter'

#1
It's an improvement on the previously shown comedy mock-up...



...especially given the original B&Q Perspex canopy...



...mini ejection seat...



...and a cockpit that looks like it would be more at home in a home-built...



...but not by much!

Essentially, the Qaher F-313 looks like a publicity exercise for domestic audiences. While it's capable of taxi trials, and possibly even flight, this is a long, long way from being a credible combat design!







I don't think F-22 and F-35 pilots need to lose to much sleep just yet! :)

Looks rather odd from this angle. The very round leading edge and thick aerofoil must limit performance if it ever actually gets in the air......:roll:

So the rest of the world has been using ultra thin wing sections on all jet fighters since the 50's, but Iran decides to go with what looks like the type of modified Clark-Y section that I used to use on R/C training models.

That's rather quaint.

And the intakes should be blanked off nicely from all of that nasty air stuff at high angles of attack.

I know nothing of military jets but I've flown a Cessna 150 with more buttons and switches, now I don't think this thing is real.

'Indiginous'?

I mean, I know what all the letters mean individually but...

Would there be a massive objection if I re-title the thread?

the droopy wing ends look like they have seen Firefox a few to many times. Or is that just me.
They might have been inspired by this badger:

Or this one...

('We'll give the wings some anhedral, stick a twin tail on it like we did with our new superfighter which isn't a Northrop F-5 and paint it black, and no-one will be any the wiser'

'Don't we need to scale it up a bit, Mahmoud?'

'No, the infidels will never twig we might be making this stuff up')
