Iran "fake" stealth fighter





biolu
Did you guys heard about iranese Qaher-313 stealth fighter?
It was announced by president Ahmadinejad last month, but the jet, said to combine the features of the US F-35 and the F-22 fighters, could not fly because it was too small and made of plastic, critics claimed. Lacking rivets and bolts, the plane was a miniature model or a working prototype at best, aviation experts said.
In response, the Khouz News website published an image of the Qaher-313 in majestic flight, soaring over a mountain peak.
But Iranian bloggers however spotted that the image of the plane was identical to that issued at the February 2 unveiling in Tehran. The angle of the plane, the reflection of the light and shadows were the same.
Looks like it is a big fail for Iran government...
More info on the Independant newspaper website!

It was a poorly done PhotoShop of a MIG fighter.

It seems that either most news sites do not take this seriously to cover it, or else somehow google search brought up mostly sites I'd never heard of. Here is one site that may have a little credibility:

http://www.globalsecurity.org/military/world/iran/qaher-313.htm

President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad claimed this was an example of Iran's high level of scientific ability, and the designer claims all parts were made locally in Iran. Analyst David Cenciotti suggests this is at best a smaller-scale prototype, and identified a number of features indicating poor design for a fighter plane.

By which they mean it was photoshopped entirely in Iran? ^.^
Though, really, they might want to consider outsourcing their photoshop propaganda needs, since they're not terribly good at it.

Their stealth fighter is just an opening gambit. Now Iran claims to have a device that can predict the future with "98% accuracy".

Quote:
Ali Razeghi says his device can produce a print-out detailing any individual’s life between five and eight years in advance after taking readings from the user's touch.

He claims the Iranian government, whose nuclear programme has caused concern around the world, can use his invention to predict military conflicts and forecast the fluctuations in the value of foreign currencies and oil.


Quote:
“Naturally a government that can see five years into the future would be able to prepare itself for challenges that might destabilise it.

“As such, we expect to market this invention among states as well as individuals once we reach a mass production stage.”

Wow chill out. Anyway just posting a fun article found on the internet man. Stealth fighter or not, it has a nice design... More likely to appear in a science fiction movie than on a battlefield though... Very Happy
