Tehran - The Ahmadinejad Jet Convulsion Laboratory today issued pictures of the country's first ever retro-engineered flying saucer.
The Waffen-SS-Zohal had been unpicked back to its bare nuts and bolts and reconfigured in a painstaking 10-year operation.
Billed as a pilotless drone suitable for bombing the shit out of Tel Aviv - er.....'a dynamic multi-purpose reconnaisance craft!' - the Mach-8 saucer looks suspiciously like a Schutzstaffel Foo Fighter with knobs on.
Iran's Technology Ministry said today one of the craft's capabilities is being able to help launch a rocket into orbit with a test capsule 'capable of carrying a donkey** into space' (don't ask).
Its high tech command structure utilises 'a small, portable navigation and monitoring center' for transmission of data and/or images .
"It can fly in both outdoor and indoor spaces on half a gallon of kerosene per hour," the Convulsion Laboratory's director of retro-engineering told reporters today.
Tomorrow's maiden flight will see the Zohal fly over nuke-stricken Fukushima in Japan to replenish its radioactive battery chargers.
All being well the saucer will then go into full service next week, on loan to Colonel Gaddafi.
Ayatollah Khamenei is 164.
