Here they are.
The first images released by an Iran news agency of what should be the U.S. RQ-170 drone crash landed in Iran on Sunday. Noteworthy, the drone wears a sort of desert color scheme much different from the dark grey one applied to the example photographed years ago at Kandahar airbase. According to sources the recovery team couldn’t find it to blow it up before it went into Iranian hands.
A video is available here (you’ll find some screenshots below, showing Iranian soldiers inspecting the almost intact robot).
Update: for those asking if it is a fake. No, I think it’s real. If it was fake they would do it in dark grey (as in all available pics to date).
It looks like a model to me.
Well that SUCKS.
China will pay cash for this “toy”…. looks like a dummy one don’t u think? :-)
Here are some better images:
That “special desert camo” is not needed. These things fly at altitudes that would make camo to blend in with terrain useless. If anything it would retain the normal haze grey used by fighters to deter observation from the ground and other aircraft. I think its a fake.
if it were a fake or reproduction, why would Iran give it this scheme when previous pics showed a (dark) grey scheme?
