The 'missiles' of the first pic are NOT the shahab-3 missile series, as you can see they have not been launched vertically; they are not missiles of any type either. They're 'unguided' artillery rockets (hence launched this way because there are no guidance mechanism on board) known as the Zelzal family of rockets. And the failed missile actually did NOT fail. It was just launched few seconds after the salvo; you can see the launch video on YouTube. Some idiot in the FARS news agency (and probably not Sepah News) must have thought it would look better this way.
The second pic was nothing but lazy journalism from some Iranian news agency and, despite the pathetic efforts of the above 'piece', has nothing to do with the Iranian government. Because there had been no pics available at the time, they've googled for 'Vertical Take-Off and Landing (VTOL) UAV,' and used the very first picture; it's nothing extra ordinary or 'scary' about an UNDERGRADUATE project in a third tier technical university in provincial Iran, i.e., the Koker.
And the third one. While the whole concept of the Q313 was propaganda and a pathetic attempt, the third photo, again, has nothing to do with Iranian government or even Iranian journalists. It's done by some FANBOY over the Internet, and even he or she could not have meant this to be taken as a genuine photo!!!
I wonder why and how you distort facts rather easily. I guess that's what 'Popular' Science means in the US.
