taurusowner: Why do they use the F-### system to designate their aircraft? That's a pretty Western thing.
WhoopAssWayne: Notice how the pilots knees are bunched up? In other pictures of the cockpit you'll notice they didn't leave any room for legs in there. He has his feet pushed in as far as they will go.
stucka: It must be like the Ravenous Bugblatter Beast of Traal ... assuming if you can't see it, it can't see you. WTF is up with the cockpit glass?
Bored Horde: I really admire the Iranian spirit here - the rest of the world are pissed that a major oil producer won't play ball the way the superpowers want, so Iran are going their own way and farking running a space program, a nuclear program, and now a modern self-made modern aerospace program. They're following in the spirit of Al-Tusi and Al-Khwarizmi, two people who are probably the most important mathematical figures of the past 5000 years.
SpdrJay: Yeah, we proved sooooo much by invading Afghanistan and Iraq that we need to pretend Iran is the next great threat to our freedumbs. I say we bring the troops home and leave the middle-east to the people who actually live there.
BumpInTheNight: The peddles take up a lot of room.
WhoopAssWayne: BumpInTheNight: The peddles take up a lot of room.LoL - here's a closeup picture of the cockpit - a greased midget couldn't fit comfortably in there. Also, check out the 'glass' in the canopy. Apparently, Iranian pilots are so skilled that a transparent cockpit was unnecessary - translucent was good enough for them.
