They are purposefully allowing the capture of these drones. No scratches at all? no repairs like the rq-170? Yeah these are being given away. and its just a bigger predator drone whoop de doo. if i was president i would fit these things with self destruct devices if they are out of contact over 20 seconds.

In July 2015 an MQ-1C, similar to this one (that's a C not a B) crashed in Iraq returning from a mission. Two days after it crashed pictures surfaced of people living near the crash site taking pictures with it. While the EO/IR turret and tails certainly were damaged if not destroyed, the only obvious damage seen in the pictures was a broken prop.

Because of the number of times they've lost aircraft to flight termination systems.

Dear Iran,

Please accept this gift.



I don't know whether your joking or not but its probably the truth that this is a part of the Iran deal.

There has always been a school of thought that said that Iran and the US are secret allies

It wouldn't surprise me in the least.

Between 2001 and 2014 over 400 UAVs crashed on various missions around the world.

Yea commonsense it would have to be more in depth than losing control or connection. I would say a GPS locator with protections as to destruct if it gets a certain distance or enemy area or you say so.
