What do you even know about military and there tactics, or technology for that matter?
Do you know who i am. Since you state this?
I have served in the Navy since 1991. That is quite a long time. More than most people on ATS have even been alive. I am 42 years old.
Why wouldn't they just hand them the drone, Could be a reason and I'm sure there is.
Your reason is no more than a excuse to justify, that Iran dosent have the capability to capture the real RQ-170.
You are making up excuses to justify what happened. So that it wont look bad for the US.
You were not part of that mission planning. Nor did you fly the drone on that mission. So you have no facts.
You are just presenting ideas.
Why wouldn't they blow it up with another drone when it landed..If It was that important to the US, they would of went in and get it the second they
lost control of it, or blow it up.
There are probably many reasons why the US didnt or couldn't destroy or destract the drone safely.
1. There was no other armed drone around.
2. They couldnt blow it up because a malfunction in that system onboard the drone. That can happen you know, even on US equipment.
3. Iran have early warning system that can detect byond their own border. Preventing a safe rescue or creating a bigger mess.
There are many reaons. Only the once who planned the mission and controlled the drone knows.
I think they can't, I know military encryption It's very high tech and is tested by the best to make it near impossible to hack it.
Here you go again. Making up excuses to justify this so that it wont look bad for the US.
This is typical for a person who is very one sided.
What you think is so insignificant it holds no merit. I dont know how you can argue your thoughts as if they hold more merit then what the Iranians
You havent been a part of this at all. But the Iraninas have.
