Two weeks ago, Iranian media proudly presented the latest product of native technical thought – undetectable to radar superfighter Qaher-313. Reported on a solemn live presentation for media, with his President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad. Unfortunately for Iran, western experts have different thoughts about the jet.
During the ceremony, the president proudly touted the aircraft as “one of the most modern in the world.” He assured that he has already “thousands of hours” in the air, pilots praise him very much and it will become a great terror for every invader. Not without reason is it called Qaher-313 (Conqueror-313).
However, on the Internet there are available a lot of accurate, high-resolution images. There can be seen clearly that the model of the plane is made of fiberglass painted in trendy black color.
The canopy is made of a thin plexiglass, and one could see that it is not transparent enough and incompletely made, so it’s rather useless.
Another puzzle is jet’s propulsion – small air intakes will not be able to supply a large engine. Nozzle is positioned so that any attempt to use a booster effect would melt the tail.
Dashboard looks like crafted from random collected parts. It is equipped with analog gauges, which in Western countries (and the new eastern) are not used in a long time. Inside the cabin there is clearly visible the fiberglass hull.
To convince doubters, Iran presented the photo of the jet it the air …
However, the discovery of the truth about montage did not take too much time.
Nice try Iran! Better luck next time 🙂
