stealth fighter – “Qaher F313”


Iran has unveiled a new domestically designed and developed fighter jet. The single-seat Qaher F 313 (Dominant 313) is the latest design aircraft produced by Iran’s military since it launched the Azarakhsh (Lightning), in 2007. Iran claims that Qaher F 313 ranks among the most sophisticated aircrafts and is shaped to stealth bombers. The Qaher-313 is similar to the US built F/A-18, although its appearance is similar to F-5E/F Tiger II. The new single-seat bomber has been manufactured by Iran based on state-of-the-art technologies and modern defence achievements.
