Washington, March 14: An American fighter jet has reportedly shot down an Iranian drone as it was flying over Iraq.
Details of the previously unreported shoot-down, which occurred last month, are still sketchy, but "we do know that American commanders have long accused Tehran of supplying weapons and training to all sorts of Iraqi militant groups, Wired News quoted a military source," as saying. Iran has built an array of unmanned aerial vehicles, or UAVs. The pneumatically launched Ababil (Swallow) has a wingspan of more than 10 feet, and cruises at 160 knots, according to Globalsecurity.org. The Mohajer or Misrad (Migrant) drone is a bit smaller, and slower.
