Iran's new stealth jet fighter a fake...

Iran's 'laughable' fighter jet caught out in Photoshop blunder


Iran has been caught out in another Photoshop blunder in an effort to prove its purported stealth fighter jet is the real deal.

An Iranian state news agency released a new picture of the radar-dodging jet flying above snow-covered mountains.

But the picture was immediately suspected to be fake, with the lighting on the plane and its position similar to its appearance in pictures on the ground in Tehran at the unveiling earlier this month.

What? No one wants to volunteer as the test pilot?

The pics from the article tell most of the story:





But the story is still well worth reading.

It's well known that Iran controls their media. But do they really think their citizenry is THIS gullible? Sheesh.

Yeah, after Imanutjob said he wanted to be an astronaut, you look at this and think either "the dude is already in space" or "sure, if this is the best they can do with a fighter mock-up, would you REALLY get on a spaceship they built?"



We've got the other thread about the RX-7; that kid has more going on than the bozos who mocked up this plane.

Yes, the citizenry in the free world isn't as gullible . . .

It's so stealthy it's invisible. OF COURSE they had to Photoshop the thing, since regular photography fails.

Why fake one? Just trade oil for it from China.

I'm not sure, but it looks like the stealth is working to me.

They don't want their pilots to get lead poisoning (though acute depleted uranium poisoning is always a risk).

And as if our media is not controlled by the present agenda then why are questions like what is your favorite hot sauce MR pres, and just how great did you the pres and the secretary of state do your job.

Iran doesn't have the technology to build a 3rd or 4th gen fighter, let alone a 5th gen.

Russia and China are struggling to bring a 5th gen into production.

The program is working so far. Thus far nobody has seen it.

Interestingly Germany probably could have done it in the late 80s/early 90s.

Iran? They would have been pretty hopeless but it remains to be how much, if anything, they can learn from that drone that crashed mostly intact last year.

Speaking of agendas, nice way to change the words around to suit yours.

We have independent media outlets, as does most of the truly free world. Doubtless our media kid-gloves the darling messiah, but the point is that they are still independent. Freedom of the press is critical to a free society, and it's an ideal for which our society correctly strives, albeit with varying degrees of success.

By contrast, the media in Iran is state run/owned/controlled. There is no independence, and freedom of the press is a concept as foreign as drinking pig blood at high noon in the public square during Ramadan...

and just as lethal, too.
