Iran Unveils Its F313 Fighter Jet: Real Or Hoax?

Submitted by: Squrlz4Sale 4 years ago in

Most experts believe the F313 is a hoax, using RC model plane footage and a non-flying life-size mock-up.

LOL! Pretty sure we are remember when Bush called them part of the Axis of evil like 8 years ago? What`s stopping them from given Iran a few nukes they have a common interest.

The intakes are too small, the canopy is a joke, and the surface looks like a rushed Bondo job. The fly-bys are probably courtesy of a call for model airplane builders in the military .

And life goes on even with the zelots and fanatics out there, But I do like the shiney plastic mock up and the "go kart" type of roosterpit. How do they wear such a small helmet over their swollen heads? As for guidance and mercy. I doubt it. People that fight a 2000+ yr old religious war that has no meaning or end until all are dead have no reason to exist. maybe that is the answer. Put a towel on your head, face the sun and bow to a non existant "god " that condemns all those that don`t follow his/it`s way .If there is a "God" may he /she help us all. The Lunatics no longer run the asylum, they made and own it. If I was religious, I would pray that somehow we all believed in each other. Instead of alienating or fearing those next to us. It scares me to think that a few people could destroy life on this planet based on their "god" will reward them belief..

Right, but North Korea actually has nukes and has China backing them up. That`s more of a credible threat, but nobody takes them seriously.

"And what`s going on behind the seat? Lower right corner?"

Absolutely nothing. In a real fighter jet, that`s where the circuit breaker panel would be. The jet turbines in a real jet provide the electricity required to operate most of the functions of they aircraft. Like any electrical system, you need circuit breaker as surge protection. Nothing about this model is functional or accessible. I`m fairly certain Gerry could do better with a model at that scale with nothing but google as an aid.

The canopy was one of the first things I noticed. The edge around the bubble and around the plane where they meet are both smooth and there`s nothing to seal it shut.

From the inside view of the c*ckpit you can see that there`s no leg room in there for the pilot to sit, his knees are above the edge where the canopy would be sealed to the plane. The back of the ejection seat is supposed to be higher, his head is over the head-rest. Also, why the hell did they leave the wires exposed coming out of the control panel towards the nose of the plane? It should be covered like the dashboard on a car. There`s so much FAIL here it`s not even funny!

@unmercyfuldu: I agree! I kept looking at it thinking "that`s not quite right".


F-22 Raptor: See those "grabby things" in the front to hold the windscreen closed? The F-313 didn`t have those...

@h4krChic: ic you`ve beaten me to it! That`s a nice pic of the F-313, notice how the helmet is "covering up" the mistake? lolz! And what`s going on behind the seat? Lower right corner?

I saw this a few days ago and have been laughing about it ever since. It`s pretty obvious that it`s not a real jet, unless of course they plan on using midgets as pilots. 99.9% of the aviation experts who have analyzed the footage and wrote articles/blogs also say it`s fake. Nice try, Iran, but you`re not fooling anyone, hahaha!

On a side not, the fact that the IAB language filter changes the word "c*ckpit" into "roosterpit" is f*cking hilarious!

LOL! That`s pretty funny actually. You can tell its a fiberglass mock-up. Look at the instruments and controls in this pic and pretty much anyone can see that it`s fake. There appears to be no way to latch the canopy when it`s down. The instrument panel contains old technology. It`s missing a lot of components that even a standard Cessna 172 have. My only question is why did they bother to make it look like they`ve got air superiority?

LOL, that is so fake. Everything about it. It`s footage of an RC plane. And even how the lazy susan it is sitting on shakes back and forth like it weighs only a few hundred pounds.
How could they keep a straight face while getting interviewed in front of it? lol!

Both Syke and Bacon got hit by the IAB censor for the word c*ckpit.

There are some vids on youtube which show the inside of the roosterpit. It`s sooooooo obviously a fake.

Here is one of the youtube vids.

It looks too shiny on display to look real. Also, the way the pilot sat in the roosterpit seemed real awkward and clumsy. His knees were almost up to his chest and the HUD looked like he`d be staring down more than up. Fake & gay (someone had to say it)

I don`t see a reason to do such a thing if they don`t intend to complete it.
A lot of things are off and I see a pattern.

The lack of quality in the mock up shows it will probably be outclassed.
It does not look large enough to have competing engine.

Looks like the copied the plane from that Clint Eastwood movie, FIREFOX



Nice looking though, even if it`s just a paper weight.

Not sure if it would look like a fake if I weren`t looking for it, but yeah, it kidna does. As the plane does a fly by and passes by the size seems to drop off quicker as it passes into the distance than a full sized plane at the suggested distance would. Also the one on the show floor looks like it was made of bondo and the windshield looks like heat formed plastic. It doesn`t look crystal clear like a fighter jet would have... or a car for that matter. Look at the F35... our most advanced fighter, even it has metal support on the windshield. That windshield just looks off.

If they had a real jet, they`d show one on the tarmac, show one taking off or landing. Hell, they don`t even have more than one full-scale mock up. That`s obviously an RC model shown in flight.
