Iran shows footage of captured US drone

Iranian TV has shown footage of an advanced US stealth drone (RQ-170 Sentinel) that Tehran says it downed using cyber warfare, overriding its navigation controls and landing it scratch free on Iranian soil. The US has conceded it lost a drone, but this looks more like a model. According to military expert John Pike, the wings are drooping the wrong way. The jury is still out.

Who cares if they have dangerous military technology? Bomb them anyway and the sooner the better.

Many drones don't land on wheels. they glide to a stop on the ground or are caught buy a net or some other contraption. as for the material, it would be made of some type of composite to reduce its radar profile. that being said, it could be real, or it could just be propaganda.

It looks like a model to me. Why do they cover up the wheels? Maybe its because there aren't any. And the front grill looks too uneven to be from a high tech stealth plane. To my untrained eyes, it looks like cardboard.

Looks like 5th grade homework to me, good effort though - but no cigar this time.
