The spy drone that Iran says they shot down on December 4th was not just an ordinary spy drone. It was a high technology stealth model.

The US government, specifically the CIA, says that the drone was a “highly secret stealth drone.” According to MSNBC Iran did not shoot the drone down. Instead, the CIA operators that were flying the drone said they lost control of the aircraft and it flew into Iranian air space.

The drone eventually ran out of fuel and crashed. According to the news report “One major concern is that the Iranians could salvage highly sensitive technology used in the drone for cameras or sensors or even the stealth technology, and try to develop it for themselves.”
