It appears Iran is actually moving forward with its indigenous fighter program. It was mocked pretty strongly for the awful mockup they displayed for the media in 2013. All sorts of things were wrong with the proposed aircraft, from terrible construction to misaligned surfaces to a cockpit that wouldn't fit a person unless they were a hobbit.

However, they got a bird out taxiing now and the photos are interesting to look at.

I said it before, and I'll keep saying it. Don't underestimate other countries. Iran has done amazing things with their aircraft, with very little support and no access to spare parts.

It only takes one or two geniuses at design, another at procurement, and a few at building--and viola...something new.

production?

Yes you can fabricate 1...10000 is not in their realm.

Unless the photo shopped pic is correct and it is a superhero plane...

This. Omg this.


Physics and engineering don't care what colors are on your flag.


Complacency and a stupidly superior attitude will just guarantee America loses her edge.

And that's your expert opinion?

More than one person far more qualified than me thought this couldn't fly too:

What does the footprint have to do with anything? I didn't know the footprint had anything to do with whether an aircraft is decent, or can fly.

Stuff like this just makes me want to know what kind of weaponry we have that isn't publicized.

NK with nukes. Iran with a stealth fighter. China with a second aircraft carrier.

What do we have? It's gotta be more than Elon Musks Falcon 9

Reversed canards? They look like normal canards to me.

The standard J85 engine has around 3,000 pounds of thrust. If they were using a stock engine, that's 6,000 pounds of thrust. It works just fine for the F-5 and T-38, so why wouldn't it work for this?

At what point does reality sink in and people realize that there are good engineers in non-western nations that are capable of doing good works, and creating something that works just fine?

That looks a lot more realistic than the Apollo photos that everyone just takes on faith.
