    Iran shot down a stray U.S. drone today. They think it was a stray surveillance UAV used in afgahnistan. Iran is developing nuclear abilities , they say to generate power. They say they are working on drone technology and might have one with a range to reach Isreal, 600 miles. Any opinions on this?

    their "drone program" probably consists of scraping together the wreckage of our drone they shot down to make something that will fly :D

    seeing all your UAV's have explosive charges on seperate and unique bands to controls and its a sat pulse to detonate i doubt they have one , maybe they shot one down but there'd be bugger all left of it if anything , even those little ones have a 600 gram RDX charge on board , 600 grams of RDX = 2 lb of C4

    Seeing as that drone cost six million dollars, there should be more info about what happened. $6,000,000 should never just stray off.
