Iran says it will build a copy of captured US spy drone aircraft

Submitted
 
TEHRAN, Iran — Iran claimed Sunday that it had recovered data from an American spy drone that went down in Iran last year, including information that the aircraft was used to spy on Osama bin Laden weeks before he was killed. Iran also said it was building a copy of the drone. (www.washingtonpost.com) More...

What are the chances that the "loss" of the drone was intentional and once they get a fleet built the US has a secret feature that will allow our government to take control of their fleet and save the American taxpayer production cost? ;-)

From the looks of it, Iran is being fooled. It will be interesting to see what comes from this!

The Iranian version might look like ours after they build it...
however, they'll have to "pull-start" it! :-)

The copy will fly as well as a North Korean rocket.

If it took them 4 years to disable stuxnet on their own computers, they have no chance of building a spy drone.

Why aren't these drones equipped with self destruct mechanism's? Seems like a logical thing to have on these aircraft.

I kinda wonder about dmanuel's comment above, if it wasn't intentional for some reason.

Seems they have unlimited funding when it comes to new technology. I believe they are arrogent enough to think they would never be in this situation.

p.s. FBI, CIA, NSA, DOD, etc.: That was a joke dudes! This time, anyway. ;-)

As much as it would be nice to think there are people in Iran that are not anti American , that number would rather small at best. When the shaw got gone we all know what happened. Wise up and accept the fact that no matter how great we think we are, many do not share that opinion at all and in fact will do everything in their power to destroy America. Just saying!!!

You can't make a working copy without the correct "gadegets" to make it work. It may look like the original, but it won't work like the original (if it all).

Anyone at FA know what's going on with some of these posts??? I think TRIBAL FUSION is in someway a spam tool. I posted comments that didn't show up, but posted later under that tag.

You're the one that's not showing the respect. The so called enemy may be the country and government, not the entire population.
