    MOSCOW, February 2 (RIA Novosti) - Iran on Saturday unveiled an advanced fighter-bomber it claimed can evade radars, Iran’ state Press TV reported.

    Iranian Defense Minister Ahmad Vahidi said the domestically manufactured Qaher-313 (Conqueror-313) “has a very low radar cross section” and is capable of conducting operations at low altitudes and carrying advanced weapons.

    The new single-seat plane can engage both other aircraft and ground targets and can take off from and land at short airstrips, the minister said.

    Press TV said Qaher was similar to the US-built F/A-18, an advanced fighter capable of dogfighting, as well as penetrating enemy air defenses to strike ground targets.
