Trying to steal Israel's thunder?

The drone shown has no damage.
Either its fake, or Iran's programming experts found a way to break encoding and manipulate the craft.
The implication of such a feat would be truly scary.

Perhaps revenge for thousands of centrifuges irreparably damaged by stuxnet virus?

The Drones are programmed to land safely if cut off from transmissions from their handler, that was the "worst case scenario", Iran claims it jammed the transmission, causing it to land, that bit is subject to debate, what doesn't seem to be up for debate is it's real and a lot of people are going "Oh Shit!" in the American Military as it has a LOT of technology on board the Chinese and Russians would -love- to get their hands on, next gen radar, optics that "allow you to pick out terrorists from 20,000 feet" (I'm not even sure WTF that even means) "Look Biff, that one's wearing a turban!!!" and radar cloaking skin/technology, supposedly there's science on there probably only the Chinese could reverse engineer (too advanced for Iran)

This is what the Iranian foreign minister (? or whoever he is) implied on CNN last night. He said that Iran did NOT shoot it down, rather it was "brought" down by Iranian "technology" about which he was not at liberty to discuss and would not discuss what they plan to do with this.

If it had been fake, USA would have been very vocal about it.

This not only could be scary but a stealth drone like this in the hands of Iran could become an ultimate dangerous weapon. Imagine what all could be strapped on it with the combination of it being a stealth.:eek:

I can't believe Obama gave this technology to Iran.

They should be programmed to auto route home, but the military did not want to pay for the SW development.

They are not completely "stealth", they just have a greatly reduced radar signature, but part of keeping them undetected is knowing the radar threats and flying them in a manner that keeps a minimum profile towards the radar site.

AN inexperienced pilot without the proper computer control systems would not be very "stealthy".

BBC News - Iran shows film of captured US drone

US officials have acknowledged the loss of the unmanned plane, saying it had malfunctioned.

However, Iranian officials say its forces electronically hijacked the drone and steered it to the ground.

I don't understand, can't the Air force use GPS to locate and destroy it?
