Define real: not CGI, not fiber glass, flight capable, actual stealth aircraft.

The new Administration should use this as an opportunity to foster better "good will" with the Iranians.
I recommend they offer the T-45 OBOGS system to Iran to use in their new jet.

Honestly, it looks like something high school shop students created.

I can't imagine it'd be effective for its stated mission. Ground/close air support? Fly that thing down in the weeds and it'll get eaten up by MANPADs and AAA fire. I suppose they could fly it higher, but then again don't see the ability to use sensors/laser or other guided smart weapons.

They might surprise us though, and fly a few in their next parade. That'll give them the satisfaction that they (on paper) joined the list of countries flying "stealth" aircraft..

That thing seems tiny, would suck loading it up. Also the main wing seems really thick, like abnormally thick compared to the size of the aircraft. I guess we can give them brownie points for making a cool looking aircraft, will it actually ever do anything though is the real question.

Yeah, cool looking.. I guess. Air worthy? That's an entirely different matter.

I'd hate to be the test pilot for this thing. Where's Pierre Sprey when you need him? Looks under-powered, stealth is "a scam" and has stubby wings so it can't turn. Likely can't run and can't climb either. I'm surprised APA hasn't screamed from the mountain tops that Iran has surpassed American 5th gens.

Try not to laugh. Looks like its still just a cheap fiberglass hull with some WW2 propeller era level construction. Polikarpov I-16 eat your heart out!

What if they're really trying to build a stealth bird, and this is it?

Wow, have they got a long way to go. It looks like they copied those Testor model kits from the 1980's, then painted it black for the menacing factor. I still think the purported role of light air support is hilarious. Anything more than a 22 caliber rifle and the recoil from the cannon should send it spiraling out of control.

Let's start the rumor then: It uses lasers... :mrgreen: :roll:

As a jet fighter enthusiast I actually like this and if they ever fly a real model of it I will be impressed.

Having another country field a jet fighter is something I look forward to, even if we all know it is a political statement and that it will be crap against any real 5th gen (or 4th gen for that matter) fighter.
