Iran’s Shiny New Fake Drone

A few weeks ago, we heard news of a new Iranian tilt-rotor drone called Koker-1.

The test flight of KOKER 1, the first VTOL drone built by Iranian scientists, was successful. It is designed for rescue and relief operations, identification and visual inspection of land and sea areas. The first phase of the project will be revealed in a month’s time on the island of Kish.

But it turns out, the only thing new about it is the Photoshop suite used to edit a Japanese drone:

Earlier this month Iran showed off its latest drone design, but on examination the photographs bear a striking similarity to those coming out of Japan’s Chiba University.

The connection was spotted by pilot, and blogger, Gary Mortimer, who felt the design of the KOKER-1 looked familiar but had to spend a few weeks remembering exactly where he’d seen it before before he remembered the Japanese researchers. He charitably suggests the Iranians might have bought a Quad Tilt Wing (QTW) unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) for testing, but admits they found a remarkably similar building over which to test it:

The Japanese drone is on the left, the Iranian one (sans windmills) in the right

In announcing the KOKER-1 the Iranians took full credit for the design, which is apparently the first vertical take-off drone built by Iranian scientists, scientists who presumably aren’t fans of windmills but like the shadows they leave.

It’s amazing that after Iran has been caught editing images for their propaganda again and again and again and again, they still do it!

    As a hotbed of science and innovation, Iran can not be topped:

      That actually sounds like a great idea. Of course, you already have the women’s bike with the bar taken off, assuming they still make those.

    Asah to Ms. Matzpun! At my taekwondo school we have a saying: don’t let the ponytail fool you. Sparring with female opponents is never fun because they’re usually more flexible (so it’s easy for them to kick you in the head) and they’re usually quicker (so it’s tougher for you to block). This dude should have just stayed in the bathroom.

    These people are fooling around with nuclear technology? They should not even be allowed to handle sharp scissors.

    I have just figured out one reason why everyone doesn’t like Israel. Israel tries so hard to show how clever, innovative and humane they are. But Israel is Sheldon Cooper, and as his mum points out, “It’s ok to be smarter than everyone, Shelly, but it is not ok to keep pointing it out to them”

      Is that from a TV show or something?

      Sorry it is just hard to keep up with everything. So busy lately.

      The pluripotent neurogenic stem cells we have been assembling on extracellular gel matrices are finally attaining sufficient axonal length to proceed with induction of more complex neural networks if we can figure a way to crosslink the components without interfering with normal dendritic receptor function.

      Maybe if you sent a summary of the show it might clarify your comment.

        Clever Zionist Biomedical Technical Language of Death — Palestinians’ brains are exploding all over the Middle East as a result. And I’m not cleaning up the mess, either.

        “The big bang theory”.
        And I wouldn’t be showing off too much. Next thing you know you’ll be accused of harvesting stem cells from Palestenian placentas.

    Is the first version called the Alte?
