You may as well just give up, Obama. last week it was a Submarine, now it's the Dominant 313.

I wonder if it uses Keshe antigravity technology?

If, as it seems, we are in the process of becoming a totalitarian society in which the state apparatus is all-powerful, the ethics most important for the survival of the true, free, human individual would be: cheat, lie, evade, fake it, be elsewhere, forge documents, build improved electronic gadgets in your garage that’ll outwit the gadgets used by the authorities.

Are you kidding? Don't fool yourself, this is exactly what Obama wants. He is working his hardest to dismantle the United States from the inside. So, I am fairly positive when he heard that a Muslim country was releasing such an advanced jet, he was very pleased with the progress.

How do you figure that would follow from this?

Fake. or at least not stealthy. A stealthy airplane would have some kind of plating on the canopy (usually gold) to reflect radar away before it could bounce off the pilot's fillings, eyeglasses, helmet fittings and all the other metal bits that cockpits feature.

Analysis

The Qaher F313 looks like a cheap copy of the American F22 and its capabilities are unknown. State TV did not even show its take-off or landing. Iran is in dire need of planes to boost its ageing fleet. The 1980-1988 Iraq-Iran war left a big dent in Iran's air force arsenal of US-supplied planes.

So there ya go.

it does seem to win a prize for non sequitur of the year so far, that's for sure.

I wonder how long they've been "developing" it, apparently in total secrecy (and Iran is hardly a country that the Intelligence community don't take very much interest in, is it?)

bull****.

And considering that it took them 4 years to 'mass produce' 6 Azaraksh fighters, I wouldn't be too worried about this one.

So, basically you have no knowledge of aeronautics?

I certainly don't but all the stealth aircraft I've seen don't have so many sharp edges as this aircraft seems to have.  The aircraft looks impressive actually but stealth is not a cheap project and I will be very surprised if they have truly made a stealthy aircraft.  One point that no one seems to be stating is that stealth by it's nature is for ATTACKING not defending one's territory.  If they are such a peace loving bunch of souls then what's up with that?

Nonsense. Iran does not have the technological capacity to pull off anything like that.
Iran´s technological progress is more typically expressed by inventing amputation machines to carry out Shariah law:
