Brand New Image of the famous Iranian F-313 Stealth Fighter Jet emerges

Nov 23 2013 - 49 Comments

Earlier this year Iran unveiled the Qaher F-313 stealth fighter jet ”one of the most sophisticated fighter jets in the world,” according to Tehran.

Even if Iranian media outlets published articles that listed the aircraft’s top features, based on the first (and only) images released on Feb. 2, 2013, we explained that the Qaher would never fly unless it was extensively modified and improved.

No more images of the F-313 have been released since then, until a new photo (taken by a user nicknamed “Iranian Spotters”) has emerged on Pakistan Defense forum, an image that allegedly shows the Qaher being moved to be prepared for taxi tests.

The new image (possibly partly photoshopped, based on some suspect blurry details on the tails and elsewhere) doesn’t add much to what we have already seen: the aircraft is probably the same (mock-up) plane showcased on Feb. 2.

    Amazing what you can do with cardboard, Styrofoam, duct tape and linkin logs.

    I have no problems saying I want one, badly. There’s nothing like it in the USA. That plane is so hot. I’d love to buy one for my 5 year old nephew who would love playing with it in his backyard

    What kind of airfield is this? It’s a FOD nightmare! I’ve seen better-maintained landfills.

    Yeah very sketchy. I think this is just for show… Iran has some impressive 2nd world production capabilities but advanced fighter jets ain’t one of them.

    When we had civilization in IRAN , there was no America in world map !!!, when our kings were ruling more than 3/4 of world there was no USA in political literature , so you better to keep track of your own country s problems instead of insulting other nations, just be a little decent when you are speaking … if IRAN military power was fake, how a bunch of young hezbollah defeated USA made army of israel?!!!!!!!!! … don’t you even think outside the box of CNN and FOX new just for a second in your life ,,,, UNBELIEVABLE …
