    Iran launches Ya Zahra (and Mersad) air defense system production line.

    Iran’s Defense Minister Brigadier General Ahmad Vahidi has inaugurated the production line of an indigenous short-range air defense system called Ya Zahra.

    “This defense system has the capability of detecting, tracking and destroying short-range aerial targets such as aircraft, helicopters and drones,” Vahidi said on Sunday.

    “Other features of the system include the capability of simultaneously engaging and destroying several targets, high operational speed and fully automatic tracking,” the Iranian defense minister added.

    Vahidi added that the mobile missile system can be connected to the country’s defense network and deployed in any location.

    Iran tested the Ya Zahra missile system during a massive seven-day maneuver, codenamed Modafe'an-e Aseman-e Velayat 4 (Defenders of the Velayat Skies 4), in November 2012.

    Vahidi also pointed to the mass-production of the Mersad air defense system, saying, “Mersad surface-to-air missile system is an efficient and advanced medium-range air defense system which can carry out defense operations against various kinds of high-speed aircraft, helicopters, drone and cruise missiles.”

    Vahidi said the system had managed to successfully destroy aerial targets in the Modafe'an-e Aseman-e Velayat 4 drills.

    ''The Iranian Air Defence Industries Group of the Aerospace Industries Organisation Ya-zahra Project has succeeded in developing a reverse-engineered R440 missile version of the then French Thomson-CSF Airsys (now Thales France) Crotale system, parts of which were stated to have been captured from Iraq during the 1980 to 1988 Iran/Iraq War. It is also believed that, as Iran has a number of Chinese-supplied FM-80 (Chinese Feimeng-80 - Flying Midge-80) systems and, possibly, follow-on FM-90 systems. Technology derived from those systems may have been used in the Ya-zahra Project.''

    Looks more like a north-korean rocket; papier mache over wire mesh. Doesn't that thing fall apart in the air?

    Im not saying it is, but it could be. Don't you think it looks a little bit small?
    it don't look a bit small, it is very small!!!!
    i don't know why is that small, but it is this way....
    specifications are secret and not told! so we can't analyze it anyway....

    we just know it looks like this, cause of it's stealth!!!!


    and don't forget that this is one of the first iranian fighter's and with our budget and time, this is the you can get!

    it would be upgraded and definitely look better!

    Furthermore, if the Qaher 313 actually flew, most probably Iran would release footage of its takeoff and landing.

    Summing up: The Q-313 displayed on Feb. 1, 2013, seems to be nothing more than a large mock up model (not properly sized to accomodate a real pilot….).
    Oh, I know, I just asked how do you know there will be a real aircraft?

    I say we get the nice people down at the Skunkworks to make one of the new Iranian fighters and unveil it next week. You know, just for the trollz.

    I don't see a problem here. It have engine nozzle cover behind, so you could not see engine itself. It seems Iran decide to place engine more forward and cover it with plane body like in Su-24 to give it some protection and maybe to hide it from radar signals.

    It have one engine and two small air intakes, but fact, they are two, means they could still give enough air to engine (how big ans strong engine is?). More intersting is, that it seems Iran take an idea from Mig-29, which also use upper air intakes and they give enough air for take off.
