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.

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

Wonder if the pilots have been taught to land?

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.

#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.

ROME - A pair of stolen masterpiece paintings valued at $50 million have been recovered after being bought at an auction for $25 and hung in an auto worker´s kitchen for years. The masterworks were described as Paul Gauguin´s "Still Life of Fruit on a Table With a Small Dog" and Pierre Bonnard´s "The Girl With Two Chairs."

WASHINGTON - As the first Obamacare enrollment period comes to a close, U.S. insurers are already anticipating the need to raise prices for 2015 and fear that it will put them at the center of the political blame game over President Barack Obama´s healthcare law. The Obama administration declared victory on Tuesday over signing up more than 7 million people for this year, overcoming technology failures that stymied enrollment in the program´s early weeks and Republican efforts to discredit it in the eyes of consumers. But insurers have already said that the first group of new enrollees under Obamacare, as

A college student visiting Colorado for spring break fell to his death after eating marijuana cookies in what´s believed to be the first publicized fatality linked to pot since its legalized sale in January. Levy Thamba, a 19-year-old exchange student at Northwest College in Powell, Wyo., had just eaten the pot-laced treats with friends last month when he became "very agitated and upset" and ran off a fourth floor hotel balcony, according to the Denver Coroner´s Office.

MOSCOW — Even as American and Russian diplomats groped toward a settlement that would halt further Russian military intervention in Ukraine, Gazprom, the Russian energy company, stepped up the economic pressure on Tuesday by sharply raising the price it charges for natural gas. Gazprom, a state-controlled gas exporter, raised the price to $385 for 1,000 cubic meters of gas, the standard measure used in gas deals in Europe, from $268, an increase of 44 percent. The price increase follows what analysts say is a long practice at Gazprom of punitive pricing for countries in the former Soviet Union and Eastern

Russia set out a series of tough conditions on Sunday night for agreeing a diplomatic solution to the crisis over its annexation of Crimea, demanding that the US and its European partners accept its proposal that ethnic Russian regions of eastern and southern Ukraine be given extensive autonomous powers independent of Kiev. Emergency talks between Sergei Lavrov, Russia´s foreign minister, and John Kerry, the US secretary of state, got under way at the Russian ambassador´s residence in Paris after a day in which tensions over Ukraine deepened appreciably. Neither man made any substantive comment before the talks began. Suggesting it

The Sultan of Brunei, one of the world’s wealthiest rulers and a close ally of Britain, will this week oversee his country’s transition to a system of Islamic law with punishments that include flogging, the dismemberment of limbs and stoning to death. The 67-year-old absolute monarch declared last year that he wanted to introduce a full sharia system in his oil-rich nation and warned critics who took to social media sites to complain that they could be prosecuted using the new laws. The decision to introduce sharia and reintroduce the death penalty has been condemned by NGOs and legal rights

Support for the health care reform law is at its lowest point since it was enacted four years ago, according to a new poll. The Associated Press survey found that only 26 percent of Americans support the Affordable Care Act, President Barack Obama’s signature domestic achievement. Forty-three percent said they are opposed to the law. The poll was conducted online, and online polls are typically not as accurate as telephone polls. But the results nevertheless point to political peril for Democratic congressional candidates in the midterm elections, with Republicans again running against the law across the country.

In a Kremlin ceremony with senior security officials, Sergei Shoigu told Putin that all Ukrainian servicemen still loyal to Kiev have left the Crimea region, whose annexation by Moscow has led to the worst stand-off with the West since the Cold War.

Before getting to the speech itself, it’s worth noting a few things. When the Democrats passed and Barack Obama signed Obamacare, the majority opposed it. About 56%, in fact. A majority have consistently opposed that law ever since. The Obama administration touted 7 million sign-ups by March 31 as “success.” When that goal appeared to be unreachable, the administration suggested that maybe 5 or 6 million would be enough. Now, as if by magic, they have their number. Somehow. All along, the administration has touted false numbers of enrollees. All along, the administration has neglected to admit that Obamacare is

ANN ARBOR, Mich. – President Obama compared the Republican budget plan to a "stinkburger" or "meanwich" during a speech here Wednesday, using a series of zingers in an attempt to strike a contrast with the GOP on economic issues in an election year. In a speech to an enthusiastic crowd of 1,400 at the University of Michigan, Obama repeatedly mocked Republican ideas about how to improve the economy, as he touted his own proposal to raise the minimum wage. Obama, who visited the local Zingerman´s deli before the speech, said that Republican proposals to cut taxes for wealthier Americans and

A triumphant President Barack Obama declared his signature medical insurance overhaul a success, saying it has made America´s health care system ´a lot better.´ But buried in the 7.1 million enrollments he announced in a heavily staged Rose Garden appearance is a more unsettling reality. Numbers from a RAND Corporation study that has been kept under wraps suggest that barely 858,000 previously uninsured Americans – nowhere near 7.1 million – have paid for new policies and joined the ranks of the insured by Monday night. Others were already insured, including millions who lost coverage when their existing policies were suddenly

With Chris Christie in deep trouble, Republican poobahs are reportedly looking to Jeb Bush to save their party in 2016. The former two-term governor of Florida speaks fluent Spanish, is a convert to Catholicism, and has high name recognition. Jeb could raise millions of dollars over night by just saying “yes” to running. Despite all this, there are strong reasons Republicans should say no to him. 1. His last name is poison. Let’s face it, if Jeb Bush had the last name of Something Else he would have already run for president in 2008 or 2012. According to a recent Washington Post/ABC News poll registered voters were asked if they would definitely NOT vote for Jeb Bush and 50 percent said they would not.

Sarah Palin continues to act in ways that confirm some of the more negative things said about her.
