We wouldn't be able to hoax UFO sightings with these because we'd know where this craft came from... Everybody will remember that the craft in the hoaxed video is the craft that Iran made, therefore it's not Unidentified. Epic fail, OP, sorry lol

I'm fairly sure the photo that accompanies the above article is merely a stock photo of a UFO used to illustrate their article. However, I'm not sure if the photo used to accompany a similar article on the ISNA website shows the real thing or not. An enlargement of that photo can be seen here:
We've built a flying saucer, boasts Iran (even if it does look like it belongs in a 1950s B-movie)
Iran today boasted that it has built the world’s first flying saucer
Called the Zohal - or Saturn in English - it said the unmanned spaceship is designed for 'aerial imaging' but added it can be used for 'various missions'.
It was unveiled by the country's offically sanctioned media on the same day it claimed to have launched a rocket into orbit with a test capsule capable of carrying a monkey into space.
The hardline Fars news agency illustrated its story with a photo of a flying saucer, akin to one appearing in a 1950s Hollywood B-movie, hovering over an unidentified wooded landscape
The reports gave no indication of the spaceship’s size. But they indicated it was small by claiming, somewhat bizarrely, that it can also fly indoors.

I believe the pic that farsnews and dailymail.co.uk are using is a slightly stretched version of this: www.allvoices.com...
It says it was posted 11 months ago, and there's about 8 pages of results on Tin Eye for it, no clue which is the original though.
