Strange… Iran's New Jet Is Iran's Old Jet

Today- Iran announced that it had successfully test flown its second home-made jet fighter called ‘Azarakhsh’ (lightning).
Here is a photo of the “new” Azarakhsh jet, via Bazteb News:

Last September- Iran announced it had developed a new warplane named “Thunder,” which it described as similar to the American F-18 fighter jet.
Here is a photo of the Thunder jet, via Middle East Online:

Hmm… This is odd.

If you take the Iranian Thunder photo and flip it and line it up with today’s Azarakhsh photo, you have the same jet photo:

It looks like the Azarakhsh may have lost its Thunder.

UPDATE: HolyCoast has more questions for the Iranian air force.
