The Canard doesn't have enought span or chord to be effective.
The thick wing which looks like a Clark Y Airfoil must have more Drag than a barn door, not to mention a Span Loading not worth a darn since their is no Span.
You could teach Boy Scout some basic Aerodynamics and they would come up with a better Planform with a good Mentor helping them...
exactly what I was thinking, and what is that downward angle at the end of the wings supposed to accomplish?
The real question is who is this supposed to fool? The western world knows this thing is a fake, no other military is worried about ever seeing it in combat, I doubt much of the Iranian population believes the propoganda any more than the North Koreans. Does Achmedinnerjacket set up these photo ops (shops) to convince the Mullahs who are really in charge that he is a competent front man?
The only reason they chose this design is magic carpets are not stealthy and it’s difficult to mount weapons pods.
Ah.... but they do have an advantage in grammar.
