Americans sank drone worth 12 million dollars

US border guards ordered the stunned drone to drown in the Pacific Ocean so that it would not fall on San Diego.


During patrolling the border between the United States and Mexico on Tuesday, a malfunction was revealed in the drone of the Americans and the border guards decided to flood the vehicle. The car was located over the Pacific Ocean in 30 km from San Diego.

"Managing engineers have determined that the drone will not be able to fly to a given position in Arizona and flooded the device, the causes of the failure are not yet known," ITAR-TASS quoted the words of the representative of the border service, Mike Friel.

It is known that the cost of the device is 12 million dollars. 10 flights of the rest of the same UAV suspended.

      Sorry, that’s not quite the topic.

      US Air Force reported On January 28, new cases of write-offs among officers responsible for launching nuclear missiles, NBC News reports. About 30 military personnel were suspected. It is not known how many of them were suspended from service in connection with cheating on the qualification exam.

      Earlier it became known that in respect of 34 officers, an investigation is being conducted in connection with a similar incident. Some of them are suspected of cheating on the exam, and the rest - that they knew about these violations, but hid it.

      The investigation concerns violations that occurred in August and September 2013. Officers are tested every month to confirm their knowledge of launch systems for nuclear missiles. As it turned out, in the exams at the end of the summer - the beginning of the fall, the servicemen sent each other SMS messages with the correct answers.

      All officers involved in this case serve or have served at the Air Force base of Malmstrom in Montana, in the 341st missile wing of the US Air Force. In total, 190 officers responsible for nuclear weapons are serving there. At the disposal of the military personnel of the 341st missile wing of the US Air Force are 150 intercontinental ballistic missiles Minuteman III (Minuteman-3), carrying nuclear warheads.

      Like the one that flew and broke ??? Did you feel sorry for the city? In the army, there is no such concept of "stolen" there is the concept of "pro ...", to put aside "lost" in general.

      It broke and had to be drowned - the heroes certainly just tell me that they drowned dolbyotyaty.

        Brave guys: once - and 12 lemons in the water! I can imagine what a hubbub our bosses would raise if this happened with us. Prosecutors would have exhausted all the guts. My friend, later the Black Sea Fleet com, drowned the KIU-2M MO seeker-destroyer in the Baltic Sea. Secret, newest. He broke off and no matter how many people were looking for him, his lodge! Until in the spring, after a storm, he spontaneously emerged in the vestments of fishing nets. They hooked up, stuck them in the base, GBshniki, the whole department flocked. The laboratory determined that "the product was not opened." Only this saved the promising l-that from the "consequences". True, after this incident, the namesake's face twitches with a nervous tic when he began to worry. It’s easier to see everything from Amer., Since 12 Lyamas are not money.

    This is not the drone that the Iranians regularly "land", and then Obama begs them back from the Ayatollahs ...
    Short story:
    So, on 4 of December 2011 of the year, world media, citing information from Iranian sources, reported that Iran’s electronic warfare systems planted an American UAV Lockheed Martin RQ-170 Sentinel (“Sentinel”) in the east of the country. Moreover, the Americans themselves claim that they planted his radio intelligence complex (RTR) 1L222 "Automobile Base", which was supplied to Iran by Russia. But most likely it was a different complex. Then Obama asked the Iranians to return him, but they refused ...


    At the beginning of December 2012, the Iranian military reported another successful interception of the American reconnaissance drone Lockheed Martin RQ-170 Sentinel. And he didn’t just capture, but set up his own production, and even donated one of the produced complexes last year to Russia.

    However, the North Koreans did not abandon the American UAVs: at the parade in Pyongyang in the 2012 year, they showed the North Korean UAV, a copy of the American MQM-107D Streaker

      On the Lockheed Martin Polecat P-175 video, not the RQ-170 Sentinel, landing (and takeoff) does not take place in Iran and not in 2011. And here is the original video http://www.metacafe.com/watch/256412/polecat_uav/

          damn, that’s interesting, are there really people who really believe that Iran could plant an Amer’s BLP in its home? Widely open it with real eyes and see the world. Iranians are still unable to create normal radars, not to mention other elements of electronic warfare.

    The one who posted the news set a minus. You must at least provide the correct photo.
    It is strange that for 12 lamas the parachute is not included in the kit. However, there are no details yet. The journalists were unlucky, instead of exploding with a bunch of victims - they only "drowned". About ours would say that drunkenness and fools. About their operators - just stoned, but very professional. The bosses will blame everything on the developers, and the developers on the UFO.

        An American drone crashed in the Pacific coast of California while patrolling the U.S. border with Mexico, USA Today reports.

        The border guards operating the drone admitted that a technical malfunction occurred in the device at the moment when it was above the ocean. As a result, the military made an operational decision to flood equipment, the cost of which is about $ 12 million.

        The recessed vehicle was one of ten drones patrolling the US border. This model was equipped with special equipment for piloting in coastal areas, including far from land. While experts will find out the causes of the crash of the aircraft, all similar drones will temporarily stop flying.

        Another drone crashed off the California coast in November 2013. Then the faulty vehicle crashed into the side of the US Navy missile cruiser, two sailors were injured. For maritime patrolling the border with Mexico in the area of ​​the California coast, according to AP, US border guards use Predator B drones equipped with a special radar. The cost of one such device is 12 million dollars. In total, the border service had ten drones. Until the causes of the UAV crash are clarified, all flights of such vehicles used by border guards are temporarily stopped.
