Iran Successfully Tests Copy of US Drone Downed in 2011: Commande



Revolutionary Guard Gen. Amir Ali Hajizadeh said the test was conducted on Monday and added that Iranian experts would present several missile projects in the near future.

MOSCOW, November 10 (Sputnik) — Iran has successfully tested an unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) based on the American RQ-170 drone downed on Iranian territory in 2011, the aerospace division head of the country's Revolutionary Guard Gen. Amir Ali Hajizadeh was quoted as saying by IRNA news agency Monday.

Hajizadeh told reporters that the test was conducted on Monday, but he did not specify its details. In addition, the general said that Iranian experts would present several missile projects in the near future.

Earlier in May, Tehran unveiled a copy of the US-made Lockheed Martin Sentinel RQ-170 drone at a military aerospace exhibition. The aircraft was a copy of a drone that Iran downed near the city of Kashmar in 2011 after crossing into Iranian airspace from neighboring Afghanistan.

The drone was downed by Iranian electronic warfare systems, which convinced it to land on Iranian territory instead of its designated home military base.4

I will wager that the only similarity with the Lockheed RQ-170 is its external appearance...
