Threat Tuesday – Iran’s New WIG

Bavar-2 Radar Evader

(AP Photo) This photo released on Tuesday, Sept. 28, 2010, by the Iranian Defense Ministry, claims to show a Bavar-2, or Confidence-2, radar-evading flying boat. Iran’s state TV says the country’s powerful Revolutionary Guard has received its first three squadrons of radar-evading flying boats.

Radar evading?  Really?  Look at that nice FLAT and SQUARE radiator for the engine.  Maybe radar evading if you can count on low and slow.

A net search will reveal that this is probably the same “flying boat” shown testing in 2006.  At that time they advertised that it would be armed; a claim similar to those made today.
