Iran Claims to have Stealth Fighter Ready for Flight Test
 
Iran is, once again, claiming that it has a "stealth fighter" under development:

Engine inlets are still undersized. Thing will be lucky to get off the ground carrying a pilot, let alone a useful payload. Another coup for the ayatollahs to crow about in their domestic media - like the photoshopped missile launch exercise from a few years ago.

Until they make an air demonstration, I wont believe them. They like to cry wolf to look stronger, kinda like Saddam and then complain when everyone is suspicious of them.

India is Developing Stealth Combat Drone


India is developing first unmanned combat aircraft, under the ambitious project 'Ghatak'. The Government has allocated Rs 3,000 crore (about $400 million) to develop the Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs).

The project is tentatively called Autonomous Unmanned Research Aircraft (AURA). Initiated by the Aeronautical Development Agency-DRDO combine in consultation with the Indian Air Force (IAF), these drones will be capable of firing missiles and precision-guided munitions at enemy targets and then returning to home bases to re-arm for further missions.

Good on India. They unfortunately have such a pain in the neck neighbor pakistan to deal with everyday with kashmir muslims trying to cause instability in the region, not to mention the communist rebels in other parts also. India may someday be able to offer well priced high tech military technology to Israel and other good nations.

Maybe. Its the other way around at the moment i.e. India is one of Israel's largest defence sales markets.

You mean the Iranian stealth fighter? It does look rather weak. I wouldnt say plastic, but not very solid. Only good for taking some photographic images if you ask me. I wouldnt worry about it making it near any military target in Israel or anywhere in the middle east like Syria for example. It would get wiped off in no time lol.
