One of American's not hostile drones has been captured by the Iranians after it crashed 140 miles into their country (off the Afghanistan border). It's a model known as the RQ-170 and is now being associated to ├╝ber-secret CIA efforts to monitor Iranian nuclear development. Since the crash, Iran has released a video showing Iranian officials examining the captured drone on display. As one might assume, the US government has neither confirmed nor denied the authenticity of the video given the seemingly intact nature of the drone despite crashing from over 50,000 feet. Higher resolution pictures from TheAviationist show little to no damage at all on the displayed drone with only minor abrasions to the lower wing and what appears to be putty work. Stories have varied as to the reasoning for the drone's loss ranging from Iran claiming to have shot it down to have hacked it's C2 causing the crash. Regardless of the reason, adversaries are chomping at the bit to reverse engineer the technologies on board.
