US Army Loses MQ-1C Gray Eagle Over Iraq


According to an Iraqi news agency, the American MQ-1C Gray Eagle reconnaissance drone crashed northwest of Baghdad. According to agency sources, the cause of the drone's fall, with a high probability, is a hacker attack conducted to intercept its control. The likelihood of a hacker attack is indirectly confirmed by images of the device, which when it fell did not receive serious damage, except for the broken rear wings and propeller.

The American reconnaissance drone did not receive serious damage when it fell. This fact may indicate that the drone was hacked and, as a result, was planted on the ground.

- leads the news agency to the word sources.

According to some sources, the Iranian military could have been involved in the “landing” of the UAV from an Iranian military base located near the site of the fall of the MQ-1C Gray Eagle, using the 1L22M Avtobaza-M executive radio intelligence system. According to other sources, the drone could be damaged by the fire of the 23-mm anti-aircraft installation.

The agency’s image clearly shows the side number of the fallen drone - 52187, confirming that it belongs to the US Army. The drone is currently handed over to the Iraqi security forces.

    Well that's all. The act of "aggression", as they say "on the face". You don't even need to shake the test tube.
    Still, the Germans and the French will sail to defend the interests of the Yankes and Britons. NATO, it will "force".

              And for what money drones of India offered.
              They are 2-3 times more expensive than the F-35 in the United States.

                    the UAV MQ-1C Gray Eagle in the amount of 1 piece is worth $ 8 million. Full set (control center and 4 UAVs) - 90 million
                    Joy even less? ..))

                      Firstly, you are in a good mood. No matter why. )))
                      Secondly, I really divided 90,5 million into 4 (approximately).
                      After all, the money spent, and the effectiveness of the kit decreased by a quarter. Something like this.
                      And in general, the less weapons partners have, the better IMHO. hi

        I think the IRGC. If they were imprisoned with the help of Avtobaza, then it is either they or the Shiite militia under the control of the Iranians. I wouldn't be surprised if they share it with Russia. There was a precedent.

    Although with the same probability it can be said that the handles on the tripods grow out of the bogie, and the brains did not even spend the night - take the RECONSTRUCTION apparatus for 30 lyamov a thing that is absolutely not protected from interception of control. With that. that by definition it should fly where it will be intercepted ...

    According to some sources, the Iranian military from the Iranian military base located not far from the crash site of the MQ-1C Gray Eagle could have been involved in the "landing" of the UAV, using the 1L22M Avtobaza-M executive electronic intelligence system

    this is unlikely. The motor depot is not capable of these actions, it is a complex passive locations. Regarding the fallen UAV, there is a chance of an accident due to loss of control without external influence

    System executive electronic intelligence? fool Well, well.
    We will not discuss the fact that the system is passive and cannot prevent anyone in any way ...
