In the USA consider Iran’s statements on the creation of a drone a “boast”

Washington doubts that Iran is able to create a copy of the captured US drone RQ-170.

In particular, Interfax writes, Senator from Connecticut Joe Lieberman called "Tehran" appropriate statements "boasting". “Iran is not the first to brag,” he said. “Especially now when they need to preserve their image against the backdrop of economic sanctions against the country.”

Earlier today, the head of the aerospace division of the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps, General Amir Ali Hadjizade, said that the Iranian military had discovered the principle of the intercepted US drone RQ-170. Currently, he added, experts are creating a copy of it.

According to the general, the Iranians managed to gain access to information stored in RQ-170 Sentinel computer systems.

The fact that Iranian soldiers destroyed the American drone RQ-170 in the airspace of the Islamic Republic, it became known 4 December last year. It was noted that the aircraft conducted reconnaissance and was shot down in the east of the country.

The drone aircraft was declared the property of the Islamic Republic. This statement was made by Iranian Defense Minister Ahmad Vahidi in response to the demand of US President Barack Obama to return the aircraft to the United States.

    They are trying to make a good face with a bad game ... If there is an apparatus, then there will be specialists who will take it apart and understand everything and everything ...

      Surely Seryozha ... If a person has done something, then there will always be another person who will disassemble and make weapons against this invention ... Well, it’s also true about ours .. I recall the story with MIG -25 ...

        I hope that "our" specialists are actively involved in decoding the drone, otherwise the amers would not be so nervous.

          100% will be, I think the Iranians have big problems with composites and they will seek help from anyone.

      Iranian Defense Minister Ahmad Vahidi announced progress in developing and manufacturing his own version of the Russian S-300 air defense system, Fars reported on Tuesday.

      “The creation of an alternative missile system is underway,” he said, adding that the work “yielded good results.”

      The Iranian military previously stated that the missile system, called the Bavar (Belief) 373, is even more powerful and advanced than the Russian S-300.

    To understand this is half the battle. It is still necessary to reproduce, and this is technology. If they understand and reproduce - well done. Increase your technological level.

        partyZAN - Colleague, there was information that it could not have done without our "car depot", so it is more likely not China, but our YuSovskie guts, in order to exchange experience ... wassat
        The shot down "stealth" was brought from Iraq, so it is quite possible that this product is now somewhere in the suburbs.

          Goga-Good day, colleague! I completely agree with your version, it was hardly possible without our brother in this case. You need to wait a bit if there is news about the creation of a new UAV by Russia, then the assumptions about the possibility of our participation in the creation of the Iranian UAV will be justified.

              Well, if our Soviet station - the newest drone planted a super-duper, without intercepting it and blocking its control without a scratch, then creating Amers.ko.go at times is not a great problem.
              Moreover - not so long ago - from a month ago - there was already an article - about the creation by Russia of an attack drone - will go into service in the 13th year. drinks
              And the fact that it will be cooler than analogues - there should be no doubt at all !!!

    Yes, Iran can make a single copy, no doubt. But mass production is unlikely. And yet this is not boasting, mockery of the States.

    They won’t do it themselves. They will find those who in exchange for technology will share the finished product.

    I believe that a flying sample can very well be done, but a copy cannot be made without the help of Russia. In addition to iron, you will also have to launch a couple of satellites with the help of which most systems are controlled and data transmission there. And without all this, it’s just a circle of skilled hands: management with the remote control and flying no further than the horizon.

    Call me a pessimist, but I would first analyze the engines of this device, and the material from which it is made! And all the rest of the equipment - not all of this, is right now necessary for Iran!

    Try to "disassemble and play" your own mobile phone.
    Why is there a mobile phone!
    Play the flash drive. But only from Russian-made components. To fit into the mass and dimensions, and consumer properties would be the same
    And Iran to Russia, like apple trees to Mars
    It was correctly noted above that it is not enough to understand, "... and how does it all work?"

    It is much more important to be able to create the same materials.
    To have equipment for the implementation of technological processes for the production of all components without exception.
    Have an appropriate service infrastructure (same control satellites)
    To be able to create on-board optics and electronics that can solve the same problems that Sentinel solves.

    Any, at least a little competent techie among you will understand and agree that the implementation of all of the above will require not just the creation of a new industry. The task of fully reengineering a flying gift will require a radical change in ALL Iranian industries. In essence, the creation of technological civilization of a new level.
    The same level that Americans have
    Any other Iranian attempts to rivet "something similar" will be akin to attempts to recreate a Ferrari that accidentally wandered over to them in the locomotive workshops. The shape will be similar, and even will be red. But, nothing more

        Well, one thing is the unshakable conviction of an ideologically correct teaching, which is true because it is true
        And a completely different thing is a materialistic understanding of the essence of the problem.

    Let's still be objective, it will be difficult for Iran to create an exact copy of the RQ-170 UAV even with the help of China and Russia, but it is undoubted that Iran gained access to part of the U.S. secret technologies and is able to use part of these technologies itself or with the help of anyone own developments. He will figure it out somewhere, somewhere in exchange for access to secret components, he will ask for help from Russia and China. By the way, there was already information that Russian experts gained access to the RQ-170 UAV, I’m sure that the Chinese as well.

      The fact is that when a trophy stinger in my opinion was brought from Vietnam (perhaps I am mistaken in the name), ours took it apart and ... everything was very simple, but to make a clone it was necessary to have factories an order of magnitude higher than we had. Also, look on the Internet about flying saucers. Along the way, both we and the amers have "trophy" ones at secret bases and seem to be active, but neither they can not reproduce them. so it's not all that simple. For anyone interested, see

    In general, a strange article, translated from Rosbalt. It seems that Rosbalt journalists tried to "creatively rethink the titanic legacy" of the Voice of America

    As a result, something appears neither in the village, nor in the conquerors of the pole:
    Iranian military destroyed American drone RQ-170

    And the most important thing is omitted:
    Iran is unlikely to be able to use any data or technology on board thanks to the measures taken to reduce the reconnaissance value of drones working on enemy territory
    Ask the question "What codes are the Iranians trying to" decode "there?

    In general, the Iranians say that they did not shoot him down, but landed at their base! Along the way, without our REBovtsov could not have done.
