    That's how you are reading them, not what they are.

    Really? Its a nice model airplane that amazingly looks like our F-35. Luz!

    This is the kind of overly expensive marketing prop I'd expect NAMCO to trot out at E3 to hawk the latest Ace Combat game, except such a prop would probably be more convincing.

    Christ where to begin with this.

    The nose is so small, it would require a radar the size of a 15 inch CRT monitor to fit.

    The air intakes are too small for a vehicle of this size to to lift off.

    The wings are a direct rip off of the Boeing Bird of Prey test vehicle. I honestly think they saw the Bird of Prey on the internet and copied it.

    Center-stick...lololol. So I assume its using a hydrualic system as opposed to fiber optic cabiling to control its surfaces? How early 4th generation fighter of you.

    I love the 1950s style indicators. And is that a Tape deck?

    The engine exhaust is going to melt the back of the plane without any kind of nozzle. The US worked on two and three dimensional thrust vectoring nozzles since the 1980s and just got them right int he last two years. Even China is using conventional engine nozzles on their new (actually flying) "stealth" fighters (that probably aren't really stealthy either). This thing isn't going anywhere.


    What a joke.

    I see the following arguments allot...

    The cockpit is to small or to simple
    it doesn't share the same characteristic as our planes
    shape is different
    looks like plastic

    I'm not a engineer but you know what, all of these arguments mean nothing simply because the argument still boils down to '' you did something different so it's wrong''. Western governments are the textbook example of being inefficient when they outsource jobs, the government of Iran may have just simply gotten a product that is simpler.

    If the government of iran has any brains then they should do their own thing and not follow the American example when it comes to military. Their is only a single country that will attack Iran and that is the USA. If Iran tries to directly compete with the US then they will lose, so they have to think outside the box. They may have produced a stealth plain that may be inferior to the US plains but maybe it is cheaper and faster to produce so they overwhelm potential attackers with sheer numbers.

    No, it's not getting mocked because it's different.

    It's getting mocked because it's a hilarious clusterfuck of a model that they're trying to pass off as a genuine aircraft.

    I think it look cute, maybe as pinata for my future children.

    That is slower than 70 year old aircraft

    meh, its painted black, doesnt mean its stealth. It doesnt have the "dynamics" of a b2, f117, f22 or f35, nor the actual "paint" that is used to make them stealth. The insulation, just LoLz.

    of course it doesnt. it also needs a light bar on the front with the light running back and forth to truly be a technological marvel

    Same here. The Legofox didn't get any love earlier either.

    There's "simpler" and then there's "not actually large enough to include everything it needs to work."

    Check it out:
    Qaher-313
    F-22

    Notice how the cockpit of the F-22 doesn't look like it could double as a bobsled? It's not just a matter of it being small, and therefore cheaper. There's the problem of being able to fit all the guts of the plane into the body, and then have room for weapons...and then have room for a functioning engine.

    They're not even trying...at the very least they could have photoshopped it onto a sky to make it look like it can fly.

    Seriously, I made a weird face when I read that.

    But I bet you every warplane enthusiast in the thread was nodding in agreement

    Oh no, I meant the part about Indiana. I browse /k/ a lot, talk of making love to inanimate objects of war is just another day for me.

    Maybe it's a drone and they want you to think it's driven by a pilot.

    I share everyone's skepticism, but I have to say that I'm amazed at the number of aerospace engineers who frequent these forums.
