Oh, Iran. Your Qaher 313 stealth fighter jet sure looks intimidating but it will never get off the ground. So why do you insist on tricking everybody into thinking that the beast can fly? Iran’s latest transgression is especially hilarious: they’ve photoshopped the Qaher 313 onto a stock image of Mount Damavand to make it look like it’s flying.
Seriously, the stock image that Iran used of magestic Mount Damavand can be found at PickyWallpapers.com. If you brighten up the picture a little bit, it’s the SAME EXACT THING. Iran floated the picture with the Qaher 313 superimposed on the mountain to “prove” that the fighter jet could fly. Check out the picture of the mountain without the jet and with the jet:
It’s not the first time Iran has tried its hand at photoshop warfare to try and instill fear in its enemies. But now Preacher Command has upped the ante by moving from Photoshop to full-scale model airplanes.
Iran has taken a novel and unorthodox approach to stealth technology by constructing their fighter out of highly-flammable fiberglass. The photos below are of Iran’s alleged Qaher 313 fighter plane.
That’s right … fiberglass! Just take a look at the side of the fuselage in the cockpit. It’s a fiberglass mockup. The fuselage walls are way too thin to be a real fighter plane. Note the leading edge of the canopy opening. If that’s not fiberglass, my name is Barack Hussein Obama. Additionally, the lack of cables and wires for the avionics further prove this is nothing but a giant model airplane. It even appear that the cockpit displays are crooked. Maybe they should of used SuperGlue instead of Elmer’s.
Now compare the real cockpit of a DC Air National Guard F-16:
How pathetic is it Iran must resort to Photoshop and fiberglass fakery to try and scare its neighbors? And they’re not even good at it! Can’t make this stuff up, people.
