BRKNG!kcran567 said:So unusual and strange, maybe it is a (WIG) wing in ground effect air vehicle to skim the surface and pop up attacks on naval targets. Much like a flying speedboat.
Well, let's give 'em a chance (F-117A flies with her vortex aerodynamics; Iranians had tested something in Fluent and even in windtunnel; impeller-driven model flies (somehow)).Harrier said:They're right not to be. Vortices will kill the air flow into the engines.
Foo Fighter said:Seeing as the standard of entrants for the next Iranian fighter is so high I thought I would add mine to the mix and I will not even charge for my services. This new fighter is completely autonomous in all regards including a new technology engine that does not need inlets or exhaust.
As there is no need for a pilot there is no need for a computer, all they are good for is playing pong anyway and a pilot should keep their minds on the job rather than high scores. Also note the new era aerodynamics which take already honed technology to new heights and especially if launched from a high building, sorry, I mean a launching pad, can achieve its terminal velocity without supplementary assistance. capable of mach 19 when boosted by the eye-on engines which enable lights speeds approaching ouch velocity and only limited by the number first thought of powered by subtly enhanced fruit fuels allowed to mature in decently sized vats until ready for use.
Deny all alternatives, fly the new improved Br 13-S Series 1. You know it makes sense, and good housing too.
It had actually but they are closed (kinda opened in FLG leg transition _may be_)CiTrus90 said:I've checked pictures of all the aircraft the IRIAF has (and had) in service, but I've found none matching with the landing gear of the Qaher. Closest thing I've found for the main gears seems to be the design of the Fajr F.3 gears, but again, it's similar but not a match.
Interestingly, a thought dawned on me while looking at the pictures: the Qaher has no doors for its frontal landing gear ;D
Dynoman said:Here is a concept art piece of the aircraft (looks like fan art) of a larger F313. A couple of blogs suggest that the experimental F313 seen taxiing is a scaled experimental aircraft designed to test aerodynamics for a larger operational vehicle. This larger concept art is configured with external stores, most likely reducing its stealthiness. Also an internal weapons bay under the inlet is also visible. (Posted here instead of the Art section of SPF to show the depiction of a larger F313, possible configuration, and location of an internal weapons bay. If you need to move it, no offense taken).
The image seems to show a forward swept wing aircraft. That would account for much of the 'out of proportion' look of it.kaiserd said:Not if it's just me but the left and right wings look out of proportion to each other, while the asymmetric weapon load is unusual, particularly for what would be essentially a small fighter design.
Hence appears to very much fan art territory.
Yes, this fanart of a larger Qaher-313 is based on the fictional ASF-X Shinden II for the Ace Combat flight simulation action video game series. ;DArjen said:[...]As you say, it appears to be in fan art territory.
