Submission + - Global Hawk downed, but not by Iran-> 1

QQBoss writes: The Air Force is not saying what caused the RQ-170 UAV to crash in Iran, but that Iran's claim to have forced it down is erroneous. At the very least, the plane didn't come down and land gently as Iran had suggested it did. At least Iran got a good photo op, though the more interesting question is what technology will they be able to glean from what they did capture.

  • Global Hawk = Northrop Grumman RQ-4

    Predator = General Atomics MQ-1

    The drone that crash landed in Iran: Sentinel = Lockheed Martin RQ-170

    Yet folks persist in using "Global Hawk" and "Predator" to describe it.
