Iran´s New Qaher 313 Stealth
Fighter Would Be Perfect
For Attacking The US Navy

Business Insider, by Robert Johnson and David Cenciotti

Original Article

Posted By:NorthernDog, 2/2/2013 12:16:17 PM

Iran yesterday revealed its most recent indigenous fighter jet — the “Qaher 313?. The prototype Q-313 was presented to President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, as a ceremonial gift during the country´s Ten-Day Dawn celebration. The festivities commemorate the 1979 revolution when the U.S. embassy in Tehran taken by force. In the previous days, the Iranian Defense Minister Brigadier General Ahmad Vahidi had said, “The aircraft will be different from the other fighter jets Iran has already made.” Indeed, based on the first photographs released by the FARS News Agency, the new stealthy jet has a peculiar design.

Comments:
It may be technologically inferior to a western fighter jet, but it could still wreak havoc in a Gulf skirmish.

How much of this is based on American Technology that Barry gave them on his apology tour?

Looks like a dressed up rocket with a human payload to boot.

Wonder if the pilots have been taught to land?

The real test is in the air, against deadly competition.

I have done some serious checking on this. It is another Iranian hoax. The fighter in the "show room´ is a wooden mock-up. The ejection seat is real, but, from a trainer. The cockpit display has been shown to be from a few cell phone displays and an I-pad type device. The video whoing it "flying" is a model airplane, radio control, which is admitted in their language "squirggly writng". One of the first things experts took now of was the fact they do not show the aircraft in taxi mode, full scale, on a runway. they just suddenly show this flying video. Based on the jerky way the airplane is flying, with sudden maneuvers, erratic in level flight, it´s most definitely a light weight balsa or fiberglass model (supporting the Farsi explanation under the video). So, until we see it at the Paris Air Show, it´s just another Iranian hoax, kind of like their silly monkey in space hoax.

Kelly Johnson of Skunk Works fame, when he first saw the F-22 stealth bomber, said, “Well, it goes to show that with enough power you can make an outhouse fly.”

This thing looks like and outhouse, but with those tiny air intakes, it can’t have much in the way of power.

It’s fake.

#11, reminds me of our saying about the F-4; given enough thrust, a crowbar WILL fly.

Can we see an actual human next to the thing to get some size perspective? Perhaps start, taxi, takeoff, maneuvers, etc? A photo of a model airplane doesn´t impress me much.

In this story I went to the link about the Saeqeh ´fighter´ [http://english.farsnews.com/newstext.php?nn=9006180081] which looks exactly like an F-5, very limited range and armament. The Saeqeh is called the Thunderbolt, and they also have a jet called the Azarakhsh, or Lightning. Both look like short range F-5s. And I know what you´re all thinking: sing it with me: "Thunderbolt and Lightning, very very frightening, ME!"

If you guys want to tangle with the US Navy, I say bring it!!!!

The US sold the Iranians F-5s and F-14s during the 60s and 70s before the revolution. That airplane is an F-5 with a remanufactured twin-tail "boat tail." The single tail F-5/T-38 boat tail uncouples from the fuselage so one can work/replace the engines.

It is nothing new and it seems Baghdad Bob has a new gig. Yawn.

ALTAMONTE SPRINGS, Fla. - Innovative Title Services, Inc., a real estate title services company established in 2003, faces a tax penalty that could virtually shut down the small business. According to the company´s President, Michael Day, the nearly $20,000 late fee is being assessed on taxes that were never due in the first place.

New York - In the fall of 2013, I gave a TED talk on what I learned as a progressive, on-air talking head at Fox News, where I worked for two years before leaving and joining my current home, CNN. After all, one of the most frequent questions I was asked during my time at Fox was how I did it, how I was a fox in the henhouse – or a hen in the Fox house, if you will.

London - British police said Tuesday they had intervened after North Korean embassy officials reportedly told a London hairdresser to take down a discount haircuts advert featuring leader Kim Jong-Un. Mo Nabbach said two officials identifying themselves as being from the Stalinist state´s mission took pictures of his M&M Hair Academy in Ealing, west London. They then demanded to know his name and ordered him to remove the "disrespectful" poster from the salon window, he told the Evening Standard newspaper. The poster featured a large picture of Kim´s distinctive short-back-and-sides hairdo with the slogan: "Bad hair day? 15 percent off

After remarks he made at the National Action Network conference this week and various actions on voting rights and equality he’s taken over the past several months, MSNBC’s Melissa Harris-Perry is starting to wonder if Attorney General Eric Holder is “the Obama we had been hoping for.” Even though she admitted it’s not entirely fair to “separate” Holder from President Barack Obama, that’s the question the host posed to her panel Saturday morning. “I think he may be the greatest addition to the entire Obama Administration,” Fordham University’s Christina Greer told Harris-Perry, saying the “foundational work”

KIEV/MOSCOW - Armed separatists took virtual control of a city in eastern Ukraine on Saturday and Kiev prepared troops to deal with what it called an "act of aggression by Russia". Pro-Russian activists carrying automatic weapons seized government buildings in Slaviansk and set up barricades on the outskirts of the city. Official buildings in several neighboring towns were also attacked. The developments have increased concerns of a possible "gas war" that could disrupt energy supplies across the continent. "The Ukrainian authorities consider the events of the day as a display of external aggression from Russia,"

Women’s specialty clothing chain Coldwater Creek filed for bankruptcy on Friday and said it will close all of its stores around the country, including 11 in Minnesota. The Sandpoint, Idaho-based company plans to time its liquidation sales to coincide with the traditionally busy Mother’s Day weekend. Coldwater Creek is the latest retailer to seek protection from creditors as consumers continue to manage their household budgets tightly and hold back on discretionary spending. Others to file for bankruptcy include discount chain Loehmann’s, trendy retailer Dots and the plus-sized Ashley Stewart Holdings. Coldwater Creek announced plans to seek strategic alternatives in October,

Like him or hate him, there is no disputing that Rush Limbaugh’s very special brand of mixing right-wing politics with his flare for entertainment has produced one of the most successful radio programs in the medium’s long history. Whatever the burning political question of the day, millions of Americans have relished the opportunity to tune into Rush’s program, knowing that he would quickly take that hot potato, throw a few gallons of verbal kerosene into the mix and elevate the matter into a five alarm fire with a just a few well-chosen words spoken in the style only Rush Limbaugh could

Less than a minute into his speech at the Boston marathon bombing memorial on Tuesday, Vice President Joe Biden went tragically off script and told the crowd of Boston bombing survivors that "it was worth it." After expressing how impressed he was with the tribute, he said somberly, "let me say to those ´quote survivors,´ my God, you have survived and you have soared. It was worth it. I mean this sincerely - just to hear each of you speak. You´re truly, truly inspiring." The audience sat in stunned silence until Biden declared, "I´ve never heard anything so beautiful than

Casual marijuana use may come with some not-so-casual side effects. For the first time ever, researchers at Northwestern University have analyzed the relationship between casual use of marijuana and brain changes – and found that young adults who used cannabis just once or twice a week showed significant abnormalities in two important brain structures. The study’s findings, to be published Wednesday in the Journal of Neuroscience, are similar to those of past research linking chronic, long-term marijuana use with mental illness and changes in brain development. Dr. Hans Breiter, co-senior study author, said he was inspired to look at the effects of casual

When it comes to tracking the cost of Obama family vacations, there are two primary challenges. First, the Obamas are prolific jet-setters, so there are many details to track. Second, the Obama administration, clearly embarrassed by these lavish and frequent family vacations, stonewalls the release of records at every turn. But we have been relentless in pursuit of this information. Our attorneys file the lawsuits and make our case, and our investigators pour through pages of records and crunch the numbers. And the information we’ve uncovered – information that would otherwise remain under lock and key – shows that the

Toddlers show racial bias when picking playmates, a study reveals. They also take account of how fairly others behave. Researchers tested the reaction of white 15-month-olds as toys were distributed. Two white adults divided the toys, one equally and the other unequally. Seventy per cent of the toddlers chose to play with the researcher who distributed the toys fairly. But in a second test, when one researcher favoured a white recipient over an Asian one, they picked the ‘fair’ researcher less often, the journal Frontiers in Psychology reports. And the babies are more likely to help those who share the same ethnicity, which is known as

I live in Las Vegas. I live and breath Nevada politics. Something is very wrong. Something smells rotten in the Nevada desert. And Senator Harry Reid’s fingerprints are all over it. I am of course referring to the Bundy Ranch siege. This was a dispute between a Nevada ranching family with rights to the land in question for 140 years and the BLM (Bureayu of Land Management). The government claims they haven’t paid grazing fees for 20 years. The result was a government assault on the ranch- including snipers with assault rifles, SUV’s, helicopters, airplanes and over 200 heavily armed troops. No
