Iranian Regime: Captured Drone Contains Technology Used in Several US Planes
Despite repeated warnings from the Pentagon, Barack Obama rejected three plans to recover or destroy the US drone that was intercepted over Iranian territory.
Con Underground was the first to report on this latest national security disaster.
Jennifer Griffin reported this yesterday on FOX News.
Obama rejected three different proposals to recover or destroy the US drone that is now in the hands of the Iranian regime.
Of course, the democrat-media complex completely ignored this story.
Today the Iranian regime announced that the captured drone contains highly classified technologies and materials which are used in a number of US planes.
Iranian Fars News reported:
Reports coming out from the Pentagon revealed that the United States’ military experts and officials are deeply worried about Tehran’s access to the RQ-170 Sentinel drone that was downed in Eastern Iran on December 4 as it contains highly classified technologies and materials which are used in a number of US planes, including F-22.
The first clear pictures of the center-line reconnaissance bay on Lockheed Martin’s RQ-170 Sentinel show that the small unmanned aircraft was carrying sensor balls mounted in an internal compartment with specially treated transparent panels-developed for the F-22-when one of them was downed by Iran on December 4.
The new pictures were taken at Kandahar airport in Afghanistan on Sept. 30. The images show that a wheels-up landing would have inflicted massive damage to the bay and sensor package, while the plane downed by Iran looked almost intact, meaning that Iran had truly found control over the pilotless drone before landing it. That package is “similar to some of the podded electro-optical/infra-red [EO/IR]systems” used by other non-stealthy aircraft and unmanned aerial systems, says a veteran black-world engineer with insight into US UAS programs.
The US Air Force squadron that flew Sentinels was activated in 2005 and the stealthy, unmanned aircraft was first photographed at Kandahar in 2007. Early RQ-170 operations were conducted from both Afghanistan-with CIA involvement-and South Korea.
