Default Iran unveils homegrown "stealth" fighter

Here we go... so it begins.

Good-looking plane, though.


EDIT: Oh wait, it's a mockup.

do the 2 red buttons near the back activate the lights and sounds feature? I am wondering now if it takes triple A or double A batteries...my son saw me looking at this pic and asked if that was a new toy. I think we have more chance seeing a new 3.75 compatable Tomahawk in the sky than that thing.

No batteries, it has an internal battery. See the charging cord to the back?

I did see that cord and I almost thought it was going to be a remote controlled plane. Whats the name of those remote planes, AirHogs? Is this the new line of Airshit? (soon to not be coming to a store near you, just a cancelled prototype)

It looks like it was designed at Hasbro.

So pretty much they copied the design of that drone they hijacked, slapped a cockpit on it, and tried to pass it off as something new and original.

Come on Iran, this is behavior I'd expect from North Korea!

This is the most pathetic thing I think I've seen Iran do. I was expecting to see an F-22 rip off like the Chinese made, in fact I was expecting for them to have fighter technology based on anything and everything the Chinese would potentially sell to them. But this, this looks like something Cobra Commander would fly.

I hope Hasbro makes a toy out of it.

In China's defense (never thought I'd say that), there are only so many forms you can give a fighter and still make it stealthy, at least with current technology.

My first thought was that it looked like something out of an anime show, like Yukikaze:


Or maybe Macross Plus:

Maybe they should just hit up Bill Clinton. I'm sure he would help them out

If it "really" (LOL) does fly, it won't for long. . .
It just doesn't seem to be all that impressive. . .

More importantly how and where are they going to get the materials to build more than one? I guess they could just keep hijacking and converting drones, we pretty much didn't even bother with a Lo-Jack on those bastards.
