More fake pictures of Iranian stealth jet hit the web according to experts
The Iranian government has been bragging that it has built a super-stealth fighter jet, the Qahar 313. The first images of this fighter jet turned up earlier this month and aviation experts in Western nations were quick to point out that there's no way that the aircraft could fly.
New photographs of the fighter jet have now surfaced that have allegedly been Photoshopped to add the aircraft into the skies above Mount Damavand. The image of the aircraft appears to be overlaid on a well-known stock image of the mountain. Iran maintains that the aircraft is real and functional, and that any claims the aircraft can’t fly are nothing other than false news and Western propaganda.
Experts pointed out that the cockpit appeared to be too small to allow the pilot to properly fit into an ejection seat. Another aviation expert claims that the aircraft isn't physically large enough to carry the equipment needed to be radar evading.
John Read from
wrote, "The jet is so small it looks like the man is sitting in a clown car, er, clown fighter. It's seriously unlikely that such an aircraft has room to carry the avionics, radars, electronic countermeasures, heat masking gear, and, most importantly for a fighter, the weapons that make modern stealth jets effective."
Experts also point out that the images of aircraft that hit the internet lack an engine nozzle. Another telltale sign that the aircraft is fake is that it lacks rivets and bolts that are featured on all aircraft including modern stealth fighters.

That is so funny, what an embarrassment. The person who made those images will be executed, that's the sad part.... lol, at least go and use a brand new image. Maybe they don't even own any real airplanes?
