If they have such a long lived culture and designed algebra then why aern't they leading the Aerospace industry? Just curious.

Iranians are smart, their culture is long lived and they designed algebra, assuming they are unable to break design concepts with new and improved is flawed, it can happen!
And the Chinese are out there with technology transfer at a much cheaper cost

Even if the plane is not up to par with western counterparts that is something that can eventually be fixed with the design process. It appears to me that we have a new arms race forming in the Middle East.
In an unveiling ceremony on Saturday, President Mahmoud Ahmedinejad said he ranked the aircraft as "among the most advanced fighter jets in the world".

These people must be incredibly desperate to try and pawn that model as a world class fighter.I've had more dangerous toys.Its OK though they still have those open cockpit flying boats with the lawn mower engines to keep them safe

Iran is a very stupid country.
What is the damn point in 'faking' a fighter?
Did they think they will scare away the US and IDF forces?

In Islam, 313 is the number of Muslims who fought in the Battle of Badr against Muhammad's, and by extension, Islam's, foes. It was a decisive Muslim victory against a force of over 1,000 other men: the Muslims lost only 14 men. The battle also took place on March 13, or 3/13.

Oh, okay. It's useless. Honestly, if its a slow mover, their dumber than I thought. From the look of it, I doubt it would be able to carry the pilot's weight, I don't see that craft carrying any kind of ordnance.
I mean, from what aircraft I've seen, either Iran thought of something we haven't in aerodynamics or their simply a long way behind the curve.edit on 4-2-2013 by milkyway12 because: (no reason given)
Is this your usual way of trolling to insult an ancient nation? Long before the existence of your fore, fore father they cultivated civilization as we know it today, excuse the question but is there a race between your stupidity and ignorance..?
Why can’t you just accept the fact that THEY CAN AND THEY DOWHAT EVER THEY WISHES. Who are YOU to judge..?
The design of the aircraft is simply bold, neat and exclusive, now.. do better if you don’t like it.
