Iran Develops Qaher F-313, a Top Notch Stealth Fighter Plane

February 6, 2013, By Sanjeev Ramachandran

Iran has unveiled a new home-made combat aircraft that boasts the capability of evading radars. Named Qaher F-313, this beast sports similarities with the American F-22.

The Qaher F313 is a single-seat stealth fighter and is indeed the latest release from Iran’s Defense Department. President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad said it has almost all the positive features of the world’s most sophisticated jets. He also stated that the development of the Iranian military power is for deterrence and defense purposes.

A few days ago, Iran had claimed that they have successfully sent a monkey into space in a Pishgam rocket, which reached an altitude of approximately 120 km.


Many other countries have responded to this by expressing their concern that Iran’s space program is an alibi to develop long-range missiles that could potentially be used to carry nuclear warheads.

Moving back to the stealth fighter, it was unveiled at a ceremony inside a Tehran hangar. Pictures of the jet were released by state television, showing a steely grey jet. Iran’s Defense Minister Ahmad Vahidi has been quoted as saying that it has been built with ‘advanced materials’ and had a very low radar signature.

The ceremony was timed to coincide with the 34th anniversary of the 1979 revolution. Hopefully, Iran is into peace rather than preparing itself for the worst as this action will definitely prompt some undesirable consequences.
