OK, let me start by saying that this is not about their nuclear program, it's about their claim that they have flown a prototype stealth aircraft:
Iran has successfully tested the research model of its first home-made radar-evading aircraft named 'Sofreh Mahi'(flatfish), a senior Iranian army commander announced on Sunday.
"The research model of this plane which staged a successful flight passed all radar-evading tests that we desired," Lieutenant Commander of the Iranian Army Air Force General Aziz Nasirzadeh told FNA.
The General said that the flatfish-inspired shape of the aircraft as well as the materials used in its structure have provided the aircraft with the radar-evading capability.
Normally, I wouldn't care, I think that's it clearly puffery, but this story has an angle made specially for the Lunkhead.
You see the name, "Flatfish"? What is a flatfish?
Well, it's flounders, soles, turbot, plaice, and halibut.
So they named this "stealth aircraft" the flounder.
Why did they do this?
My guess is, just for the Halibut.
OK, this has "Lunkhead" written all over it.
