The Aviationist has a picture showing an alleged new Chinese UAV (or two), which closely resembles the RQ-170 Sentinel. There had been several
reports that Chinese delegations had gone to Iran to examine the Sentinel captured there, and this is the best proof that the reports were true (not
that there was much doubt).
It was reported in August of last year that 17 Chinese scientists were in Iran to examine, and remove certain key parts of the aircraft to take back
to China to copy for their own aircraft. Iran has also said that they're ready to fly their own copy of the aircraft.
It allegedly shows a series of brand new UAVs (unamanned aerial vehicles) one of those resembles the famous Lockheed Martin RQ-170 Sentinel, one
of those was captured in Iran in 2011.
Last Februrary, Iran released footage that proves it has, if not literally decoded, at least accessed some of the data stored inside the U.S. stealthy
RQ-170 drone captured in December 2011.
Previously, in Aug. 2012, The Aviationist published an article titled: Chinese delegation currently in Iran to copy the U.S. stealthy RQ-170 drone
captured in 2011 about the news that a group of 17 Chinese expert had visited Iran not only to inspect, but also to collect and bring back to China
some key components of the U.S. RQ-170 drone captured by Iran in December 2011.
There is no confirmation that the picture is real, but I wouldn't be surprised if it is. The timing is about right for them to have developed a copy
of the aircraft.
