BEIRUT, LEBANON (1:40 P.M.) – Iran’s first 100 percent domestically-produced fighter jet ‘Kowsar’ successfully completed its first test flight after a ceremony attended by Iranian President Hassan Rouhani in Tehran on Tuesday, Defence Industry day.

The jet, which was first unveiled back in 2017 at the MAKS air show in Moscow, was developed by Iran’s Aviation Industries Organisation.

Its most notable feature include indigenous avionics and a fire-control system, making Iran one of few countries to possess the know-how necessary to develop such systems.

While the prototype currently has two seats, future variations will also come with one seat only and will serve both fighting and training purposes.

Wow, you know the famous p0rn actress Janna? She’s really hot! I give you your first +1! Thus, Khamenei will have a heart attack if she takes care of him. And she surely does better than 72 inexperienced houri-virgins, she’s a true professional 😉 The old dotard will feel younger after this. As he considers Victor Hugo his prefered author, maybe will he die the same way : V.Hugo died in the arms of a 25y old prostitüte.

This is a reverse-engineered copy of the F-5. A step forward from the refurbished HESA Saeqeh (2007) and HESA Azarakhsh (1997), but the pace of development is such that Iran is falling further behind its enemies. It would be good to know if Iran has made progress on radar and air defense, as these will do more for defense against Israeli-US threats.

Iranian regime has artificially created its enemies and the #1 enemy now is the population willing to hang the mullahs.

Congrats. It reminds me of the JF-17 fighter. But, I was hoping for that stealth fighter.

No JF-17! Reverse engineered 1962 Northrop F-5!
In 2022, Iran will also have hippies and in 2025, it’ll be the summer of love, mosques will be converted into Eros-centers and nudism will be the norm on beaches 🙂
Lotsa German tourists will come 😉
