That is a combination of the Sukhoi T-50, and the F-22. The engines and parts of the fuselage match up to the T-50, and the wings match up to the F-22.

I did not know plywood planes could fly.
Hey, you leave plywood planes alone, remember the Spruce Goose, or more important and a tad more successful the UK DH Mossie, one of the fastest prop planes of ww2 and used on early spy missions, flying high, cold and fast over Germany, unarmed!
And not a bad looking plane either.

And one is still flying, not bad for some thin wood and glue!

They have based their whole defense around having to fight countries with firepower the likes of which they've never seen. Going to war with Iran will teach the United States we've had it easy toppling countries and spreading "freedom"
Those flying boats are a joke yes but they dont come up with the missle capabilities by being stupid.
You underestimate Irans overall military capability it seems.

Iranians don't have near the cutting edge tech we do, but they've been exceptionally clever in how they compensate for that. They've also watched, front row center seats for recording our full capabilities across THREE wars now, right on their borders, with the luxury of watching while under no threat. I'll bet they haven't missed much for strength and weakness.
