What do you guys think? i think this is what project shafaq/M-ATF turned into over the years and if this jet is suppossed to be unmanned why does it show a cockpit in the 3-D illustration even though i think it will be many years till actual deployment of such an advanced fighter/bomber/unmanned drone or whatever it turns out to be

I changed your photo link to two internal links.

Its difficult to say how far they are with the project. However, I think they've decided on a design and tested a model in wind tunnel tests, and are currently implementing their research... they're working on it.

Thanks Pasdar for posting the pics, as someone said before in another thread they both have diffrent charecteristics one has a cockpit and a large intake on top which i believe to be the future manned fighter while the other is a stealth unmmaned drone

this picture is not clear at all, specially the UAV shot taken from the side.
better to wait for better shot.

but in my side the poster is not the same as the sample, and I guess shafaq project has nothing to do with Sofreh Mahi project

Yes, they're very different... but the largest image I posted looks more similar to the 3D design photo on the right in the first photo. I think these were both on the same truck... the second image is of a model on the right with its image to its right (the 3D image you see on the first photo)... but the info of the second model (the one in the first photo) is on its left... but not on the photo...

hmm?

also notice the tails(dont know technical term sorry) are diffrent



edit: now that i notice it these concepts look similary in the front half of the aircraft besides maybe the wings to that article which gave a 3D morghe ashura a while back

Here are some pics of these new Stealth designs from ACIG, though they are from the VIDEO so the quality isnt the best, still very interesting! Also from the first pic we can see that Planeman's first drawing of the unmanned stealth drone/bomber model is incorrect and looks more diamond shaped like the F-117.

From a layman's point of view, this is fascinating.  If these imageryn are shown I wonder what's NOT shown.  I also wonder if the thinking is as big as the space and nuclear programs.  Perhaps it is!

Let's hope they built it soon.

It looks a bit like the German Lampridae stealth fighter that was canceled in 1987, apparently some of the German scientists that were working on the project later went on to work in Iran.

the one in front is much bigger then the "Sofre Mahe" at the back.
I wonder of the one in front is 1/7??

did any one catch the name of UAV in front?
any body have the video, when they are pass by?

nice found out.
but in the poster called Sofre Mahe
and it is not plane but a UAV

and the one in front(no name) should be another UAV too

I'm confused now, so which one is Sofreh Mahi? According to that poster the one that looks like YF-23 is Sofreh Mahi but some say that will be a manned 5th generation fighter. :?

Sofreh Mahi is a UAV so it means it doesn't have a cockpit, so you would think it is the one with the orange head however the picture next to it shows one with a cockpit that is also called sofreh Mahi UAV.

So maybe this is two different versions of the same plane, one a UAV another one manned.

It would be a waste of resources to make a flying model. If that thing flying there, that you posted, is this same aircraft, then I expect this is its final size. However, if we look at the 3D design we have to assume that its a model and that they're working on it.

Also note that its an IRIAF project... now if someone could find a photo taken of that poster... these incompetent journalists always take incomplete pics and we have to depend on people taking pics.

That poster is a two-sided poster..Just look at the first pic I posted, the other side of the poster shows the Diamond-shaped model while the side we are seeing in the more circulated pic is the 5th Generation Fighter. I think we can call the diamond-shaped model the Sofreh Mahi since it is actually a flat diamond shape as the name suggests. The other model does not and indeed resembles the YF-23 in shape and lack of horizontal stabilizers.

I hadn't seen that side of the poster, thanks. However the other side of the poster with the image of a 5th gen fighter says "unmanned airplane - sofreh mahi".
