Iranian military provides an exact copy of the "drone" RQ-170 locally produced

According to the resource, About half a year ago, the Iranian command issued a statement stating that they were able to create an exact copy of the RQ-170 reconnaissance aircraft. Moreover, this sample aviation technology was even demonstrated, along with other UAVs of "domestic production", the head of the Islamic Republic, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei.

Iranian military provides an exact copy of the "drone" RQ-170 locally produced

Now Iranian journalists are reporting that Tehran now has its own unmanned stealth planes designed for reconnaissance missions, as well as attacking enemy ships.

To avoid any doubts, for clarity in the showroom, two “drone” vehicles were exhibited: the American RQ-2011 intercepted by the Iranians at the end of 170 and its “exact copy”, which was created by Iranian experts.

Also in the hall of the IRGC were shown UAV "Shahed-129" and "Shahed-125", which were also manufactured in Iran. According to the military, airplanes are capable of being in the air up to 24 hours and during this time fly up to two thousand kilometers. Other exhibits of Iranian production presented at the exhibition are anti-missile defense systems, radar systems, anti-ship missiles.

Local media claim that the Iranian military plans to use copies of the RQ-170 aircraft against US ships found in the Persian Gulf. And if the US RQ-170 is only a reconnaissance aircraft, then its Iranian counterpart can also act as a bomber UAV.

As it became known, the US-owned UAV was lost in December 2011, about 20 kilometers from the Afghan-Iranian border. Soon, Iran received reports that they were able to understand the design and make a copy of the RQ-170. The first to make this statement was General Amir-Ali Hadjizade.

Meanwhile, the US command claims that the Iranians could not bring down their stealth aircraft. In response, the Iranian military said they managed to hack the RQ-170 computer system and "force" it to land. However, Western experts believe that Iran does not have the necessary equipment or specialists for the production of UAVs. In addition, only one copy of the RQ-170 costs six million dollars and is not intended for launching missile strikes, so its use as a suicide bomber does not make sense.

Recall that earlier Iran had already reported on its outstanding success in the implementation of projects related to the production of domestic unmanned aircraft. According to some statements, the Iranians allegedly even surpassed Russia in this matter and can compete with the United States and Israel. But in fact, according to Western experts, Iranian troops, armed with the latest UAVs, are just a myth that Tehran spreads not so much to intimidate a potential enemy, but to raise the morale of the citizens of the Islamic Republic.

        No, they won't let someone else into the base. Each military vehicle has a radio key, which can be used to determine the identity of "friend or foe". The keys of the device intercepted by the Iranians have already been deleted from the register of "theirs".

          The Merikos, however, said that nothing had disappeared from them, so they didn’t need to cross out anything, so let them wait for the bird to return (if, of course, it actually knows how to fly, and not from the words of the IRGC representatives).

      aircraft engine
      communication and control systems
      production - avionics

    and who ... who calls ?? Although this is not the point. Why should Tehran sink US ships in the Persian Gulf with the help of an UAV, and even hid from the United States, if this can be done by more traditional methods. This is pure politics, that is, in the event that Iran, like Iraq, is not doing it. And that drone flies or not this is the tenth thing.

    As practice has shown, copies are far from always better than the original. It is proved by the Chinese copies of our military equipment and small arms. I doubt that this instance will be more effective in battle than the original. It all comes down to a banal demonstration of opportunities.

    They were able to land an American drone with the help of Russian electronic warfare. Copying a business is not tricky, only China, for example, has failed to copy new and not very new Russian fighters. They rattle in the air, they say, flying is dangerous.

    What the hell is not joking while God is sleeping, maybe they really figured out and made sure that they do not have smart heads, or maybe in order to scare American ships, so that they would be wiped off the Iranian shores.

      The question is, will this copy fly? Or is it in the form of an exhibit and will stand in the museum of Iranian progress?

    Judging by the content of the article and the video presented by the Israeli press, Iranian copies are already flying over Damascus. Video of Iranian Shahed 129 in action:
    I have great doubts about interception and landing. But the Iranians have learned to "blame" them. And most likely with the help of Russian-made electronic warfare equipment.
