Iran's new jet fighter: Qaher F313

31 posts in this topic

Prior to the opening of the Pacific Theater Area of WW2 most of the Allied forces believed that the Japanese had poor aircraft, and their pilots couldn't see well enough to fly properly anyway.

It was a very rude awakening, when they found out just how wrong they were.

At the time of ww2 Japan had a tiny economy, very little oil and minimal industrial power.

It still took years to beat the small empire to it's knees.

The Zero was very fast but very vulnerable too.

What is up with these crazy Iranis?

Nukes, missiles, jet fighters; mid-20th century anyone?

update: the photos of the interior cockpit of the plane show that there is no latch assemmbly on the canopy. No way to keep it closed. IF this plane could fly, and thats a big if, the canopy would be torn off during takeoff.

Also of note is that the avionics in the cockpit are on par with a small personal aircraft like a Cessna 2 seater.

In 10 or 15 years, due to their huge rearmament program, you might see the Russians being able to project enough power to actually be able to protect Iran.

Until then however, Iran is basically on its own, and all these cheesy fake "superweapon" programs they keep announcing suggests that they are more than a bit desperate at this point.

Aviation Experts Debunk Iran’s Stealth Fighter Jet Claims

The development of a new Iranian stealth fighter attracted a lot of attention over the weekend. But aviation experts are now questioning whether the jet is even real.

This weekend pictures and video were released of Iranian military officials surveying what looked like a fully operational Q-313. Aeronautics experts, including David Cenciotti of the blog The Aviationist, quickly pointed out some serious design flaws.

For example, the wiring of the cockpit's front panel appears too simple and the cockpit seems too small for a pilot to fit inside. Perhaps more importantly, Cenciotti claims the plane's back engine contains no nozzle for afterburners, which means the heat would probably melt the entire jet. He further speculates that the video of the plane coasting through the air was mostly likely a radio-controlled version.

The video of the plane's unveiling released to YouTube was met with mockery from viewers. There are upward of 150,000 views and counting. One person joked, "I built one of those when I was a kid. I wonder what type of glue they used?"

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