Iran claims that it had a successful test of a missile than can avoid radar. I think this is bullshit. Could a third-world hack of a country develop such a thing????

so.... you should be publicly smacked across the entire arfcom forums as a message to the massive number of people who get giddy in their ability to call something a dupe.

Iran says it's building stealth missile

THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

TEHRAN, Iran -- Iran is producing its first stealth missile, a rocket that can evade electronic detection, the Iranian Defense Ministry said Tuesday while withholding its range.

The missile, named Kowsar after a river in Muslim descriptions of paradise, will be capable of hitting ships and aircraft, Defense Ministry spokesman Mohammad Reza Imani told The Associated Press.

He refused to give the missile's range or provide other details. Features of the Kowsar, such as its guidance and positioning systems, are currently on show at an exhibition in Tehran that is open only to select government officials.

Iranian state television announced the Kowsar Tuesday while screening pictures of a missile flying through the air.

Iran manufactures various missiles, chief among them the Shahab-3 whose range of 810-miles makes it capable of reaching Israel.

Iran also produces tanks, armored personnel carriers, and a fighter plane.

The Kowsar river is mentioned in the Quran, Islam's holy book.

No reason that it isn't technically feasible. All the more reason to bomb the shit out of them sooner. Suckers.

Iran has plenty of money, Russia has plenty of unemployed missile designers and scientists… go figure

So I think this calls for deception that the British Intelligence agencies are famous for. I think someone, and I'm not saying who, needs to fake some telemetry data showing this thing to actually be capable of the claims, but having only the range to hit Russia and China.

Yes but in this case, I believe the Iranians are significantly exaggerating their capabilities, perhaps in response to our recent threatening bunker buster demonstration in Nevada.
