    The idea is short controlled bursts. Altought the gun could in theory dispend it's ammunition in a blink of an eye that is not the idea.

    There is an internal limiter that limits bursts to for exemple 80 or less rounds. The idea is to fire that burst as quick as possible to put the 80 rounds into the air simultaniously putting a chunk of lead into the air. A single round is not likely to cause much damage to a jet but 30 or 40 hitting in a cluster will shread stuff.

    Imagine it like a shotgun. Altought you only have 5-8 shots when you hit something you take a chunk out of it.

    I don't see why you should take the child from the woman unless she abuses it.

    Now if only the Iranians can build it so it flies, and does all the other stuff a fighter jet is supposed to do.

    It's no stealth plane, it's a time machine. This was the vessel used to take that monkey into space we heard about earlier, when it came back it had evolved into a different species of monkey, this can only be explained by time travel.

    Haha, great moment to test APAR and SMART-L on that thing. If those can track and destroy fast target drones, a 200 MPH flying piece of junk shouldn't prove anything profoundly hard to target does it?

    IE: The F313 (really? Haha, reminds me of Donald Duck stories) is mostly made to humor the west to test there weapon systems at.

    F-35 is far more advanced than the F-22. It's not even close. The F-22 is a 1990s plane that was delayed into the mid 2000s thanks to politics and Lockheed. The F-35 is a far different bird... scarily advanced in some areas. But it's a product of the mid-late 2000s and early 2010s.

    In fact Lockheed is investigating adapating some F-35 technology to the F-22. But the biggest pieces - like the Electro Optical Targeting System and the Helmet-Mounted HUD that allows 360 degree missile firing, won't be.

    Furthermore the F-35A and C has an empty space behind the cockpit the size of a large industrial refrigerator that is waiting for tactical laser integration (it's where the lift fan is on the F-35B). F-22 will never have that either.

    F-22 is an effective stealth aircraft, that's all it needs to be. The F-35 is a nicheless piece of crap that has an equivalent aircraft superior in all of its functions save STOVL.

    And when this ever so deadly RC plane finally gets into the sky, it will only be shot down by a missile from North Korea made of popsicle sticks that missed its NYC target by a mere 10 thousand miles.

    Is this thing like that Chinese stealth fighter they rolled out onto an airstrip and then let people take pictures of it sit there before they rolled it off again?

This plane is almost certainly a mock-up, because if it's not—well, look, I can only assume that the country employs at least one aerospace engineer, right? This has to be a joke, right?

    Any aviation experts here with an opinion? It looks way too small to fly, and why is the writing in English? Real thing or just a big bluff?

    -------------------------

    Update: This post (http://www.mmo-champion.com/threads/...6#post20202756) shows that the jet has been poorly photoshopped 'in flight'.

    Not very stealthy since I can clearly see it....

    The ENGLISH words and lack of cockpit space points to it not being a real thing.

    I had the urge to troll this plane comparing it to the De Havilland Mosquito, which was actually quicker. Unfortunately looking at it the Mosuito wasn't stealth because it detected the engine after passing through the wood, it just had a very small RDC.

    If you manage to make an engine are all the other metal components out of something other than metal however. CONGRATULATIONS!!! You have a better stealth plane than Iran.

    You might be able to do that with ceramics. Especially a jet engine, would be able to run at higher temps than a metal construction too.

    I don't think you can call it a fighter plane. The speeds on it are very slow. Likely a large drone if it can fly.
