    Iran's New Qaher 313 Stealth Fighter

    I think I agree with the people who are calling this a mock-up. Those photos of the cockpit don’t look very convincing to me.

    Just because it doesnt exist now, doesnt mean it cant. We are made to believe they are living in mud huts, but that couldnt be farther from the truth.

    I'd be impressed if a couple high school kids did this in their spare time. Back to the drawing board Mahmoud, your sh!t is ragged!!

    No HUD and everything is in English? There isn't even any locks on the canopy. Surely they can make a better fake than that. I think it's a trap.

    Look at the sides of the cockpit, they are fiberglass. I have seen models that look more realistic!

    Not a real aircraft, for sure, and while the Iranians have many capabilities they lack our ability to design a helmet-mounted cueing sight with a virtual head-up display that obviates the need for a physical HUD (although ours doesn't work). Still, be cautioned against two mistakes: perceiving Iran as our enemy and underestimating Iran. Our own fighter force today would be more capable if we had large numbers of good-enough instead of small numbers of the best.

    Absinthe, you seem to have overlooked the basic rule in AFI 3-6101, which says you cannot be in the Air Force or participate in these Forums if you're interested in aircraft.

    Agreed. Iran will bring an end to themselves on their own. Scrap the 35 and bring back the F-15 lines.
