Iran shows off ‘Qaher 313’ stealth fighter jet

A prototype of a stealth fighter jet has been unveiled by the Iranian government as part of ceremonies to celebrate its 1979 Islamic revolution.

The Qaher 313 has a distinctive design, with relatively small wings, a twin tail and a tiny, bare, cockpit. Iran’s defence minister Ahmad Vahidi said “The aircraft will be different from the other fighter jets Iran has already made.”

It’s being displayed in conjunction with the Ten-Day dawn ceremonies, which mark the overthrow of the Pahlavi dynasty in the country in 1979. The aircraft was built by Iran’s Aviation Industries Organisation – part of the country’s ministry of defence.

However, the craft depicted by Iranian state media is a little on the small side. The Aviationist describes it as likely to be a large mock-up model, rather than an actual flyable craft.

“The fighter jet is Iranian made and all its parts, from A to Z, have been manufactured domestically,” said Hassan Parvaneh
