    I saw a pic where someone broke down all the electronics in the cockpit. Apparently its chock-full of off the shelf commercial systems

    So...is the canopy supposed to be that distorted? I thought letting the pilot see out of his vehicle was a good thing.

    For those who don't know, that's 287.7 mph or 463 kph

    An F16 redlines at 800 or so, and that's 920.6 mph or 1481.6 kph

    I wonder if it will have a different paint-job when it lands after its first successful mission...

    To put that into context, thats slower than a WW2 British Spitfire.

    almost 100 miles an hour slower actually, Iran truly is having a laugh.

    Well, the Spitfire is one of the greatest planes ever built, in my opinion. So of course it is better than Tehran secondary school's class project.

    P51 Mustangs were faster as well, I think they were in the mid 400's, in terms of mph.

    Psh. You cant compare this masterpiece to a shitty 4th generation plane.

    F22: Maximum speed:
    At altitude: Mach 2.25 (1,500 mph, 2,410 km/h)
    Supercruise: Mach 1.82 (1,220 mph, 1,963 km/h)

    Yeah, the latest model of Spitfire could reach 450 MPH, I was being generous to Iran and using an older model of Spitfire for comparison. Nobody could accuse me of being unfair.

    Hell, the Flying Fortress went over 300 mph

    I'm not here to dis Iran and all....but seriously.

    If you can't build 4th generation Jet fighters I seriously doubt you could build a 5th generation one.

    Russians are just rolling out their own 5th generation fighters and the Chinese are still playing catch up.

    Both of these countries have INFINITLY more resources to conduct R+D and the Russians have shitfuckton load of engineering expertise (and probably helping along the Chinese).

    I honestly doubt Iran just managed to pull out of it's rear end a functional 5th generation jet. Or even a prototype.

    This has been confirmed fact. The only country with a nuttier regime than Iran is North Korea.

    Maybe their rockets can meet in the sky and we can for Team Rocket.

    I don't think even the Iranian people are stupid enough to buy into this even with it coming from their own government. Unless I'm wrong about that and they are that stupid, I really don't see the Iranian leadership’s purpose of making (bigger) fools of themselves with something like this.

    We've had stealth technology for something like 35-40 years, so I'm sure we know how to detect stealth aircraft. The united states owns the world's skies. This plane if it's real makes no difference.

    That is the tiniest stealth plane I've ever seen. It looks like a hollow model.
