Iranian Drone

inkognitoApril 24, 2012

Iran has reverse engineered the US drone that went down there last year. The drone was tested recently.

During its first and only flight it wiped out a village of sheepherders, levelled a school then crashed.

The Iranian Engineering team pronounced it an authentic replica of the American model.

This model is probably now obsolete and was only for surveillance. Thus, how did they arm it?

How? Don't be fooled. There are intelligent weapons engineers in Iran. They have launched armed drones prior to this one.

The sheepherders was overkill! In brevity there may be wit!

Ink, reading of the number of crashes of U.S. drones, an exact Iranian replica may be expected to malfunction as well... but I think that the captured model is too small to do the amount of damage that you cite. Maybe damage a single-room school, or a few wayward sheep?

I guess I don't find any humor in drone deaths.
