Iranian “Special” Fighter Is A Joke

Those Iranians are special. They’ve developed the worlds first-ever rivetless fiberglass stealth fighter! It apparently comes complete with an 8-track player (look at the slideshow, linked below) and a canopy made from the finest plastic bubbles found in gumball machines everywhere!


Ahmadinejad unveils new Iranian jetfighter

Iran’s newest fighter jet, Qaher-313, or Dominant-313, is unveiled by Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, accompanied by top officials during a ceremony, in Tehran, Iran, Saturday, Feb. 2, 2013. Ahmadinejad unveiled the country’s newest fighter jet, which officials claim can evade radar. Meanwhile, experts in the United States doubt if the plane can even fly, much less avoid radar.

I always find these staged hoaxes funny, because all of the words are written in English. What “English-as-a-1st-language” person is going to be servicing this aircraft?

    Yeah, Suits was talking about that last Saturday night on DSP.
    His commentary had me laughing my ass off.

    Click on the picture and view it with it zoomed in. It says “Removing Jury Strut Before Flight”. They must’ve used Google Translate.

    The whole thing is laughably sad. Look at the fiberglass work, it’s all crooked, and deformed. Wow. 75% of the pilot is exposed in the canopy. There are no instruments, no wiring to speak of…

    No lip to seal the canopy, just a rubber rain guard off a garage door. No pitot tubes… Laughable.

    Here is Iran’s latest ground attack aircraft.

    That Spark-O-Matic 8 Track player that is exposed through the front of the canopy would give off a radar signature as big as a 747.

      I guess that’s kinda stealthy. As in, “stealth that makes you appear much larger and more intimidating than a small fighter airframe!”

    Do you remember the tradition when a US aircraft carrier goes to sea after re-fit? They take an old car to shoot off the catapult.
    Here is the next “old car”.

    I really wonder how much time and money was spent on this. Resources might have been better used building atomic hardened bomb shelters.

    You know, Norks don’t travel and have no access to the outside world. They don’t even know what they don’t know so they are easy to fool.

    Iranians, on the other hand, travel the world, have access to various media and are educated. How embarrassing this must be for them.

      I remember my first time in Turkey. The newspapers were crazy with a story about a secret American fighter that was only visible by moonlight. Imagine doing the pre-flight on that thing… You’d poke your dang eye out.

      My point is that folks who pride themselves on living in the 7th century, don’t have the toughest eyes to get the wool over. Just saying.

      Oddmandemonjob actually flies in real planes. He should know better than to think this would work.

    Looks like they rolled their model airplance craft project into the local 4-H fair livestock corral. Toy jet took 2nd and Ahmadinejad took 1st.

    “I’M-A-WHAK-JOB” is actually a “Dead-Head”! Lotsa’ LSD, DOPE, &…
    …”Ridin’ that plane, High on cocain…”
