That Was Quick… Iranian Regime Announces It Will Simulate US RQ-170 Drone

Despite repeated warnings from the Pentagon, Barack Obama rejected three plans to recover or destroy the US drone that was intercepted over Iranian territory this week.

The Iranian regime announced today that they will build their own drones based on the RQ-170 Semtinel it captured this week.
Fars News reported:

A senior parliamentarian underlined Tehran’s advanced technological capabilities and possibilities, and said the Iranian Armed Forces intend to simulate the design and reproduce the US RQ-170 Sentinel stealth aircraft that they downed in Eastern Iran last week.

“Relying on their scientific capabilities, the Armed Forces will be able to simulate the RQ-170 aircraft soon,” Vice-Chairman of the parliament’s National Security and Foreign Policy Commission Hossein Ebrahimi told FNA on Sunday.

“Iran enjoys different possibilities and precious technologies that the enemies are not aware of,” he added.

Ebrahimi stressed the importance and preciousness of the drone for Iran, and said understanding and using the technology of the stealth drone and its systems is the best thing Iran can do at present.

On Saturday, another Iranian lawmaker said Tehran has the needed technology to decode the intelligence gathering systems of the drone.

“Since the hi-tech drone was downed, Americans have been seriously worried about the intelligence inside its systems, but they should know that the Islamic Republic of Iran will decode the intelligence and data existing in the drone systems by means of its highly-advanced technology,” member of the parliament’s National Security and Foreign Policy Commission Seyed Hossein Naqavi told FNA.

He reiterated that decoding the intelligence in the RQ-170 spy aircraft will provide the Islamic Republic of Iran’s Armed Forces with vitally important information.

Barack Obama had an opportunity to recover or destroy the captured drone but he didn’t. Now the Iranian regime is already talking about using the technology against its enemies.
Another Obama failure.
