Just like we lost the U2, just like we lost the stealth help in Pakistan, just like we lost the f117 in Bosnia? Are you saying that the USA never
loses advanced stuff? The f117 at the time was the top stealth aircraft in operation and we still lost it, this drone was better than the predator and
yet we still lost it
Where is your evidence that this was 98% off the shelf parts; do you have a inventory and parts list we would certainly like to see. If it was so
mundane why us Obama crying and begging for it back. I want to see this off the shelf parts list that you claim; if you can't produce ur you are
speaking out of your bottom.
no sir, I am saying that we always calculate the risk... we were wrong more than we were right in the past... what I am saying is the only advanced
tech that can be gleaned from this aircraft is the coating for stealth.... and thats only if they have the proper methods to reverse engineer it....
Obama has to ask for it back, because like all other exotic craft, the acting president asked for them back.... simple really.
Look it up, I don't feel like getting all the sources together, as its not worth my time... believe what you want, but if you look at it, this
aircraft went from drawing board to build via rapid prototyping... which would mean that most of the parts were already in production. Sure, they
have one of the spectral cameras, but the circuitry that makes it work is all fried (most likely) so that wont do them any good, and thats likely the
only thing that was worth worrying about, since its the most advanced (known) piece on this aircraft.
