Stealth Flying Boat

Check out this hyperbole.
"Due to its advanced design, no radar at sea or in the air can detect it. It can lift out of the water," the television said. It said the boat was "all Iranian-made and can launch missiles with precise targeting while moving."
Well, it looks more like a kit W.I.G. plane from some Dick Rutan wannabe with the in-line 6 from a '71 Buick on top. To me, there is just one word for it. Target. Dumb, slow target. High res here.
UPDATE: Some very smart people are giving the Iranians WAY too much credit. Seriously guys, drop me an email first next time. Please. It is embarrassing. I want the Iranians to build hundreds of these. Spend lots of money on them. Please. For the children.
UPDATE II - Electric Boogaloo: ThreatsWatch has a good, sober perpective here.
