I reckon it left the runway on landing, looking at the clip….tee hee.
Why does an Iranian drone have English writing in it (Caution Propeller, Remove Before Flight)?
Because English is the most common language in the world. Even Iran’s military uses some English for communication purposes.
English is scientific and industrial language in iran look at Iran missile serial numbers and etc they are all in English, even some of our missile have partly english name like Qadr F and Qadr H(in persian it would be Qadr Fe)

Well, its a refuelling probe. Not as essential as metal sheets covering the hull of an aircraft.
I beg to differ!
