Yeah, what i figured as well. Also missing one bomb. I wonder if it fell off in the crash, or some poor bastard got wacked.

Shame it was in perfect condition, they'll take it to a lab for full analysis in one of those anechoic rooms

Downed with electronic warfare.
Pretty unlikely all things considered.
You can see in one of the pics that a blade is missing from the prop,that could well have been the source of the problem,something as simple as a mechanical failure.
Still,the russians have quite a ways to go if they`re going to beat the libyan record of losing 19 bayraktars in only 6 months.....:azn:
Tho I must say that for me personally the best bit was that a certain "osint analyst" who liked to sh!t talk about iranian drones,for once had very little to say [not surprising considering all the sh!t in the ukraine getting blown up by the s131 and s136:devil:]
Really Oryx?,"LOL" thats the best you can do?,reeeeally?😏

Seems like parachute has been activated. propeller loose could be the result of water impact, or bullet impact of Ukrainian fighter jets.

Nonetheless, Russians have shown themselves to be quite generous in leaving their gears behind!

For some reason they have this weird salty mannerisms when it comes to Iran. I dunno why. Maybe cause they get paychecks from certain governments.

Yes,I thought it was just third rate militaries like the saudis or the saa who left large amounts of equipment behind to be captured or destroyed.
You`d think that there would be standing orders that any equipment that was immobilized and/or could not be moved/recovered easily would be destroyed,and the same for any equipment of a specialised nature whos capture could lead to important systems being compromised,ie ew systems,radars,jammers,ecm/eccm,control and communications etc....

The best he can do is hiding on his website all the brutalized TB2s and now unleashing his primal rage on Iran drones

Last time he was claiming Russia returned drones to Iran, using a simple satellite image of a Shahed-129 on an Iranian airfield as a claim lol

Just their hatred of Iran, nothing else.

So far, the dismissive comments I’ve seen on twitter and elsewhere are based on assumptions such as, “it’s almost certainly not capable of abc”, or “there’s no way the Iranians have developed an actual xyz” "Its crap aliexpress unga". Basically, it’s non-experts saying they simply can’t believe Iranians can make something serious because of their ham-handed propaganda with the Qaher fiasco etc

Even the few “experts” seem to base their opinions on the argument from personal incredulity and their personal hatred, essentially saying “It’s not possible for me to believe Iranians could have made a decent drone because of my innate hatred and contempt” without a single technical spec at their disposal (as we saw with the Ukrainian clown "analysis") neither any references. Apparently it’s too mind-boggling to accept that making a decent drone is whithin the realm of possibility for a culture that invented Algebra and produces world-class Engineers and Scientists.

Another common refrain is that it’s a “rip-off of the X drone", or “just a reversed clone of X”, which is valid for certain drones and missiles. Just as valid as calling the American Vanguard and Juno rockets a “rip-off”, or “just and upgrade”, of the German V-2 since both US and USSR missile and jet technology was not only based on German know-how, but in fact employed captured Germans such as von Braun. At least Iran haven’t been keeping US or whatever drone designers captive last I heard.

What gets lost in the noise are the real achievements of a country that has managed to fend for itself despite +40 years of crippling sanctions, and whose science and technology has been flourishing in spite of every attempt to block their progress. Case in point is how Iran have not only kept their F-14s flying but have upgraded them and are making decent drones, producing them. Not to mention radars, SAMs, smart bombs, cruise missiles, ballistic missiles, etc.

Remember that America, Britain, Israel, Germany, Russia, and France had the benefit of unlimited access to the best minds and technology in the world while designing their weapons, while Iran has accomplished this feat while under the worst sanctions and psyop in history and with the highest rate of brain-drain in the world, and 1% of the US defence budget.

The russians ought to bomb and destroy it at the very least...this is one of the reasons I didn't want drones to be sold to those worthless, careless drunkards. Retards lost this in a matter of days...Houthis protected our technology better for years.
Well Mohajer 6 was sold to Ethiopia before Russia, I'm sure they have considered the possibility of losing them. If they were so worried about losing them it wouldn't be offered for export.
