Qaher F-313 Conqueror by bagera3005 Qaher F-313 Conqueror by bagera3005
The Qaher-313 (Persian: قاهر-۳۱۳; also Ghaher-313, Conqueror (Tamer)-313, Q-313, F-313) is an Iranian single-seat stealth fighter aircraft publicly announced on 1 February 2013. It was presented to the press by President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad and Defense Minister Ahmad Vahidi on 2 February 2013, as part of the Ten-Day Dawn ceremonies


Design and development

According to Iranian government sources, the F-313 Qaher was designed and is indigenously produced in Iran by the Aviation Industries Organization (AIO), a division of the Ministry of Defense, and IRIAF. The project manager is Hassan Parvaneh.

The aircraft design is a canard configuration. It is stated to be a stealth fighter built with advanced materials with a very low radar signature and with low-altitude operations capability.[8] It was also claimed that the Qaher can take off and land on short runways and has "easy maintenance". Qaher has a payload capacity of carrying two 2000 pound bombs, or greater number of smaller smart guided missiles, or at least 6 air-to-air missiles in the category of PL-12.

Flightglobal.com noted that the Qaher-313 vaguely resembles the Boeing Bird of Prey prototype, but with a more faceted design similar to the 1970s-era Lockheed Have Blue that was developed into the now retired F-117 Nighthawk. Flight Global also said, "given the apparent small size of the aircraft and its single engine design, the Qaher 313 could be powered by reverse engineered variants of the General Electric J85 turbojet that Iran is known to have in its possession." Iran has General Electric J85s as a result of old Northrop F-5s in its inventory from pre-1979.[6]

Unlike all recent fighter aircraft, the 313 is designed with extra stability and so does not need a fly by wire system.

A prototype version of the Qaher-313 was been portrayed to have test-flown at some point before the presentation.According to the head of the design team, two sub-sized models have been created and tested. One of the models uses a propeller engine while the other uses a small micro jet engine. The models were shown in a video clip (along with descriptions by the head of the design team) the same day. According to Haaretz, the "blurry video published by the Iranians purporting to show the Qaher 313 in flight seems to show not a manned fighter jet but a small radio-operated drone."
Mockup lineart, estimated
Doubts of viability of aircraft

There is no independent verification of the status of development of this aircraft and various commentators, some have even claimed that the aircraft is a "hoax". Media sources outside of Iran have raised the possibility that the demonstrated aircraft would not be able to meet stated performance and/or that it may be a scale prototype or mockup, with Cyrus Amini of BBC News noting that the aircraft "looks like a cheap copy of the American F22". Iran does not release technical details on its arsenals, so many of its claims about the aircraft are impossible to verify.

Israeli experts doubt the Iranian claims, saying the fighter presented was nothing more than a "very sleek plastic model." They note that the canopy appears to be constructed of "basic plastic," and its engine air intakes are unusually small. They say it gives the impression of plastic parts pasted to an old flying platform. The cockpit and ejection seat seem real, but the Qaher-313 displayed seemed too small to be a capable fighter. Video footage showing the plane airborne could have been a radio-controlled model aircraft. Poor-quality footage posted on the internet provided no sense of scale for the platform being flown, and also failed to show its take-off or landing. Its stealth factors are also called into question, having no visible weapons carrying capability, either internally or externally.

The Times of Israel labelled the aircraft "a hoax". Israeli aeronautics expert Tal Inbar said, "It’s not a plane, because that’s not how a real plane looks. Iran doesn’t have the ability to build planes. Plain and simple." Aviation expert David Cenciotti stated that the aircraft has "implausible aerodynamics and Hollywood sheen", noted that it is too small to be a real fighter jet and that the cockpit was too simple and was "similar to those equipping small private planes."

One Israeli aerospace engineer speaking anonymously to The Times of Israel indicated that while the aircraft displayed was obviously not a flying example, it did show advanced stealth features and that the design could be capable of high maneuverability. He stated that while the aircraft lacked bomb-carrying provisions it could be an effective interceptor. He concluded, Iran needs "a defensive interceptor that gives them the element of surprise, and it is big enough to carry real air-to-air missiles."



A Suggestion for all Iranian pilots ordered to take on USAF US Navy USMC an Israel stealth aircraft. Eject, or fly to Israel and become a Jew. A dog fight ageist any of our birds will be fast and our birds will be so fare inside on this bird you will be throwing change at them.

Iran already produces their own fighter-jets (the "Saegeh" for example). Stripped down technology demonstrators and proof of concept experimental prototypes are quite normal in the aviation industry. The same was done for the F35, for example. The display version of the F-313 is publically stated as just a mock-up in the same way as the first F-35 and F-22 mockups were displayed a decade ago. Being a mock-up doesn't equate to being a "fake" project. The inlets are similar in size to the Saegeh and F-5. Some informed sources claim that the F-313 probably uses the J-85 engine which Iran already produces. The Boeing Bird of Prey design had drooping wingtips. There are similarites to the X-36 and X-48. The nose shape is similar to the chines on the SR-71. I'm just pointing these things. Never underestimate the enemy. Israel and the USA would be wise to heed this advice. AFAIK, no Western government has expressed any public doubts about the existence nor capabilities of the F-313. Perhaps they're better informed than cheap tabloids and internet trolls.

No, you would need to do some real research instead of reading silly opinion blogs and dumb TV shows. Then you would know that Iran has long had both the manufacturing and technological capability to produce their own fighter-jets, and that "stealth" has been around for decades. You would also then understand why the Western governments DO take Iran seriously, even if the moronic trolls on rightwing nutcase sites don't.

No. I read aviation journals. I also know that Iran lacks both the materials capability and the technology base to produce stealth technology. And Iran's fighter building capabilities stretch to making copies of older aircraft such as the F-5. Hardly 'blogger' material but rather good old fashioned research. Now I will acknowledge that Iran has a relatively formidable fighter force (although we said that about Iraq back when they invaded Kuwait) but they lack the ability to produce a stealth plane. ONLY nations with a suitable technological base can be considered to have the ability to manufacture stealth planes and stealth technologies. (Europe, Russia, America and maybe China at a push) Iran can make a stealthy looking shape, but making a plane actually stealth is a different ball game.

Stealth has been around for decades, and Iran isn't that far backward. The Germans were working on stealth versus radars during WW2. They don't just make "copies", they redesign and develop further. Often they create something entirely new as well (such as their ASBM which was independently developed, and not based on the Chinese DF-21). Iran has been sending students overseas to places such as Japan for decades too; they would have the technical know-how already. There are reports of Iranian development of stealth technology versus radars going back to at least 2004. From 2006, Iran reportedly also has the biggest testing centre for stealth development in the Middle East.

Please. It still took the Americans years to develop stealth. Iran simply lacks the materials research and the aviation capability. As for the biggest stealth research centre in the Middle East, the entire region is noteworthy for LACKING in research. The know-how to make stealth would hardly be common knowledge either, given the amount of security surrounding that technology. And yes, their fighters ARE copies of other designs. Designing a new fighter from scratch is a whole different ball game.

It's also taken years for Iran to develop stealth. It may not be as advanced as the USA's but so what? Stealth is only a matter of degree anyway, and any degree which reduces the time for an opposing force to detect the stealthed attacker gives an advantage. The Germans were working on stealth during WW2. The USA's radar absorbent paints were originally based on a development by Mitsubishi; the paint was a Japanese invention originally. You're totally wrong about the Middle East lacking in research; Iran has the largest stealth research facility in the Middle East. They've had that since 2006. No, their fighters are not "copies", although they might start from a similar design, they always go further. Their Toufan 2 combat chopper isn't identical to the Cobra that it was perhaps based on, but has far more advanced electronics. Not all of their tech is copies either; they independently developed their ASBMs.

Except that Iran doesn't have the technological base to develop stealth. And an upgraded copy is still a copy. As for ASBMs, THEY are a a hell of a lot easier to develop than stealth, which Iran clearly lacks the ability to develop

According to a couple of the aviation experts that I know, the F313 is actually a very good design for it's apparently intended role. It's supposed to fly supersonic to the region of the target, then subsonic BELOW the radar for the attack run. For this kind of role, it should work extremely well. Especially being small and highly maneouvreable. There many ways to achieve stealth, it doesn't "require" carbon-fibre, there are other adequate materials. Titanium decays rapidly, but I suppose it depends on how long they plan for these aircraft to be in service. The Iranians are not fools, and it's silly that so many nutters want to pretend that Iranians are stupid or talentless.

Their economy is fine; especially considering that it's doing quite well despite the imposed embargoes of the USA and Europe, they can still trade with other nations. if the USA and Israel weren't threatening and lying about Iran all the time, maybe there wouldn't be any necessity for the Iranians to develop improved military technologies.

You haven't shown anything to convince me that Iran wouldn't know about stealth; look up on the internet, there's plenty around to learn about stealth that's been out there for over twenty years. You haven't given any good reasons for the F313 to be a bad design for it's role either. It's probably ideal for the combat role that the Iranians intend it for - because they are not stupid people.

Either the canards are bigger or the tiny stubby wings are smaller than this. Check the photos, they're almost the same width front and back.

p.s. The rear wings are exact copy of the captured drone with turn downs added. The drone was single wing so the contents of the plane were within that. I think they didn't take this into account and scaled it all wrong. That's why the wings are so stubby.

That's probably only due to the limits of translation. Not due to the aircraft designers themselves. Translating from one language to another, particularly when they're very different in pattern and culture, tends to result in similar misunderstandings.

Look at the thing! The air intakes are too small to be useful; the angle of the wings and control surfaces are all different (aircraft designers try to make them all the same, so radar beams are all reflected towards the same direction, and it's easier to plan missions so the aircraft avoids showing its Achilles heel to enemy radar stations); and the aircraft's size is barely enough to fit two AIM-9 air-to-air missiles, to say nothing of any useful ground attack munitions (assuming they use internal weapon bays, as underwing pylons would lighten up radar screens like the sun at noon). And saying the aircraft has "extra stability and so does not need a fly by wire system" is equivalent to saying it "is not very maneuverable, and thus, is vulnerable to contemporary aircraft in a dogfight."
Reply
:iconlovelynice:
Lovelynice Featured By Owner Mar 26, 2013
The air intakes are roughly the same size of those on the F-5, so you don't know what you're talking about. I have never seen a stealth aircraft having everything at the same angle, that's just a ridiculous claim. So what if it's small? Being small is probably an advantage; cheaper, can make more of them, and harder to detect. I doubt that they use the same ammo as an American plane anyway.
Reply
:iconarmamentdawg:
ArmamentDawg Featured By Owner Mar 26, 2013
You do NOT know what you're talking about.

1) The F-5 has larger air intakes, in proportion to its size.

2) Compare the sweep of an F-22's wings, to the sweep of its tailplanes; or the sweep of an F-35's wings, to the sweep of its tailplanes; or the sweep of a J-20's canards, to the sweep of its wings; or the sweep of a Sukhoi T-50's wings, to the sweep of its tailplanes. Do you see now?

3) The Qaher's size limits the amount of fuel it can carry (and consequently, its range and combat radius), the size of the missiles (and consequently, the range at which these missiles can attack, and/or the amount of damage their warheads can cause) and bombs it can carry.

Lovelynice Featured By Owner Mar 29, 2013
I would argue that it's you who don't know what you're talking about. AFAIK, the F-5 air intakes are roughly the same size proportiionally. Since it's likely that the Qaher uses the same engine (J-85), that's quite logical. Comparing apples and oranges doesn't change the point; the F-313 is probably well designed for IT'S ROLE - so of course, it wouldn't be identical in proportions to those other planes. It's not intended for the same operational use. That's obvious. So what if the fuel is less, it's clearly not intended for attacking other countries far away, so no problem there.

Seems to me, that you've neither thought this through, nor studied the subject.

:iconarmamentdawg:
ArmamentDawg Featured By Owner Mar 29, 2013
What role do you think the Qaher is designed for? The fact Iran has two remote-control models flying, makes it unlikely this is a flight-test demonstrator, i.e., an Avro 707 to a larger aircraft's Vulcan ([link]). The fact its fuel capacity is limited, makes it less useful as a reconnaissance plane- no point in trying to see where the enemy is or what he's doing, if your spy plane's combat radius is so short, this enemy will be at your doorstep before you can make use of its report. It can't compete with surface-to-air missiles which replaced the point interceptor for short-range air defense. And if you fail to see how useful a large fuel capacity is for DEFENDING a country, e.g., repelling an invading army, then you're too stupid to understand what I'm saying.

Your insults are not a replacement for intelligence nor logic. Maybe you try those instead, then you might be able to impress people. The F-313 Qaher doesn't need to fly any great distance in order to attack any likely opponent to Iran. Since Iran's main opponent would probably be the USA, and the USA would have to bring aircraft carrier battlegroups within useful range to carry out any major attack on Iran, then it's most probable that the F-313 Qaher is intended to attack those aircraft battlegroups. Not alone, either. Since Iran also is one of only two nations (the other being China) that have succeeded in developing ASBMs (which the USA has NO DEFENCE against). How would a SAM be able to hit a target that it can't see? The F-313 Qaher appears to be designed for flying below radar on the strike run at the very least. So far, it seems that your opinion that the craft is badly designed is only motivated by your peculiarly irrational assumption that Iranians are idiots. I doubt that they are. Very much.

According to 16 intelligence agencies in the USA, and the IAEA, there's no evidence of a nuclear weapons program in Iran. Truthfully they don't need one. They can target Dimona in Israel and turn that into a wonderfully nasty cocktail of radioactive fallout and poisons that would leave Israel uninhabitable for decades. They can easily take out the water desalination facilities in Saudi Arabia, crippling that nation in merely days without water to drink. Iran has repeatedly allowed IAEA inspectors into their facilities anyway. They aren't stupid - and the Western governments know it, unlike some trolls on the internet. An actual attack on Iran could trigger all sorts of huge trouble, as leaders of the Russian government have often stated; any attack on Iran will be treated as an attack on Russia. If the F-313 was a "toy", then why do western governments take it seriously?
