SOURCE: the aviationist The prototype of the Q-313 (or F-313 according to the stencils applied to the aircraft), was presented to President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad and publicly displayed as part of the Ten-Day Dawn ceremonies held in Iran to celebrate the 1979?s victory of the Islamic Revolution. In the previous days, the Iranian Defense Minister Brigadier General Ahmad Vahidi had said, â€œThe aircraft will be different from the other fighter jets Iran has already made.â€ The Q-313 has large, seemingly fixed canards, and little wings whose external section is canted downward. The canopy material is at least odd (based on its transparency, it looks like plexiglass or something like that). The cockpit seems to be basic (a bit too much for a modern plane â€“ note the lack of wirings behind the front panel). The air intakes are extremely small whereas the engine section lacks any kind of nozzle. Summing up: the shape is interesting with some innovative features but 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 pilotâ€¦.).
