Iran successfully tests radar-evading aircraft

Iran has conducted a successful test of its first domestically developed radar-evading aircraft, a senior military official said.



Tehran: Iran has conducted a successful test of its first domestically developed radar-evading aircraft, a senior military official said.
The prototype of the aircraft named `Sofreh Mahi`(flatfish) which staged a "successful flight" passed all radar-evading tests, Lieutenant Commander of the Iranian Army Air Force General Aziz Nasirzadeh said on Sunday.

The General said that once the flatfish-shaped aircraft passes further tests and its features and capabilities are completed, the Defence Ministry will start its mass production.

"Production of the actual size as well as mounting and testing weapons and a number of systems on the aircraft are the next phases before we can start its mass production," Fars News Agnecy quoted Nasirzadeh as saying.

Iran in June successfully tested a home-made radar-evading Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV) with bombing capabilities.

"This airplane is a model drone built on a one-seventh scale for the Defence Ministry," Commander of the Iranian Army Air Force General Hassan Shah Safi said, adding that the UAV bomber would be produced in virtual size and would join the Iranian Air Force fleet in the near future.

The UAV has been designed and manufactured for reconnaissance and bombing missions, considering its radar-evading capability, the official said.
