Iran's Stealth Jet a MAJOR FAIL

http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2013/0...usaolp00000009

Not only are they guilty of P-chopping their chest thumping image of military know-how... but I can tell that bird is nothing but a prop in their "unveiling" photos.

Look at this image....



Look closely at the glass of the canopy. You can't make out any details of things behind one layer of that glass that are in the same room! How is a pilot going to see any amount of details on the ground? If that thing really flies the only thing a pilot could discern looking through that vacuum formed piece of plastic is what is sky and what is ground... so long as it's day time.

The optics on that are absolutely horrible. I work in polycarbonates. It looks like they used a ****-grade acrylic to make that canopy. The stuff I sell is ONLY optical grade stuff...

That was one of the first things I noticed when they put photos out a few weeks ago...

Why would the danger ejection seat message be written in english? Have some pride in your nation and use your native language.

Well, they get an A+ for effort. I don't know what Iran has, and I don't care as long as our sh!t is better.

I wonder if Iran knows the world is likely laughing at them for this.

the wires coming off the back of the dash computer the f-35 needs a $300,000 air conditioner to keep the electronics cool, this jet looks to need a cpu fan
