http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Qaher-313

The Qaher-313 (Persian: قاهر-۳۱۳‎; also Ghaher-313, Conqueror-313, Q-313, F-313) is an Iranian single-seat stealth fighter aircraft publically announced on February 1, 2013.[1] It was presented to the press by President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad and Defense Minister Ahmad Vahidi on 2 February 2013, as part of the Ten-Day Dawn ceremonies.[2][3][4][5][6] A prototype version has been test-flown at some point before that.[7]

The F-313 Qaher was designed and is indigenously produced in Iran.[8] The aircraft is said to be a stealth fighter with low-level operations capability.[9] Qaher is built with "advanced materials" and had a very low radar signature.[10] Qaher can take off and land on short runways and it has "easy maintenance".[11]

Incredibly doubtful it has stealth tech of any real means

I bet they're using "undiscovered" Materials they found in their mountains

Looks like an F-35 knockoff. Probably a lemon also.

It looks more like a toy than a legitimate fighter plane.

I like the body, but the wings are a bit odd looking.

general opinion by aircraft design experts is that the one seen is a scale mock up or PR tool. IF it is full sized it is far too small to have anything but the smallest jet engine on the market and even then its air intakes(seen covered in red in the photos) would be too small by far, afterburner capability would be impossible. Fuel load, weapons loads and even room for basic military avionics would all be highly problematic. There are no visible access panels which points to it not only being a mockup but a simplistic mockup.

The canopy: 376367_10151267045228603_2091176214_n-thumb-560x392-171927.jpg appears to be cheap plexiglass. Check out the distortion visible in the picture. Image quality through the dome would be horrendous and the heads up display would be greatly effected except there is no heads up display onboard.

Dont expect Iran to be taking the lead in the air supremacy role anytime in the near or distant future.

Agreed. And I doubt they have mastered the on-board electronics systems. This is the same way I feel about the 'new' Chinese stealth fighter. It's easy to make it visually look appealing but its a completely different story when it comes to fighting capability, safety, electronics, materials used.

There are only a handful of nations able to make top-of-the-line aircraft, the Americans, some European countries and obviously the Russians, the rest don't compare.

At least they're not dumb enough to just re-use footage from the movie Top Gun, unlike China, lol.
