    I think the picture is symbolic and not referring to any specific drone.

    30,000 ft is a fairly high altitude, I don't think Karrar's max flight ceiling is published but it's good to take that into consideration.

    Has Iran Been Hacking U.S. Drones?

    Last known location of UAV (satellite image courtesy of Bing/Microsoft)

    By looking at previous coordinates in the feed, we know that the UAV was proceeding in a southerly direction, so it makes sense to look immediately to the south of the last known location.

    Sure enough, approximately 150 meters to the south of the last known location we find an area that matches the images of the crash site recorded by the second UAV. The longitude displayed on the feed of this second UAV also matches, although the latitude is obscured.

    Chinas new supersonic drone may be a signal, a reminder on what Iran should do in regards of heavy airpower.
    This is a missile and less so a aircraft.
    Iran's biggest bottleneck, the necessary jet engines for a persistent supersonic bomber/interceptor may be skipped to go for something similar to the newly disclosed Chinese drone.

    What is called Aurora and was/is used as black project asset by the U.S most likely a rocket motor powered Mach 3-6 reconnaissance aircraft. It developed into the black world after the success with the X-15 test aircraft.

    Hence we see that Russians were working on jet engine powered heavy mach 3 airpower and the U.S developing a jet-ramjet hybrid for their mach 3 airpower, the SR-71.
    The U.S then also went beyond that for high value, long range, heavy airpower from what rumors tell (Aurora), manned or unmanned.
    The new Chinese drone seems to be their reaction after seeing the Aurora employed against them.
    Maybe the Chinese just sticked to a rocket-motor-only solution due to the lack of a suitable jet engine, maybe the black U.S solution also lacks a jet engine propulsion component.

    For Iran it means that all its knowledge on liquid rocket motors could be used in such a project. It also means that all its knowledge on MaRV could be used for the aerodynamics and airframe/materials. Plus all knowledge from unmanned systems could be used for a unmanned solution.

    Iran also has large aircrafts such as the Tu-154 to bring it up and to speed before it starts accelerating via a throttleable liquid motor or strap-on booster(s) (from mach 0,9 to 4-5). Iran is not well known for its liquid rocket motors but may be able to kick something like this off by now, maybe first with very low re-use cycle life.
    Is titanium a must for such a mach-3-6 system? I think not, composites etc. could take that role.

    Such a system would then be immune or very robust to currently employed air and SAM power of any regional adversary of Iran.
    Air launch instead of missile/ground booster launch would make its early (IR) detection unlikely.
    Payload would be sufficient for heavy bombing role.
    Range would be depending..., because oxidizer is carried on-board but could be sufficient for regional employment. The motor(s) would just sustain friction losses and allow landing.

    It also means however that the Chinese disclosure and its connection to the U.S has the message for Iran that such back project assets create a strike-at-will capability for the U.S.
    What is called Aurora may be a bomber too and depending on range, starting concept, payload, numbers, may represent a true critical danger against Irans non-hardened military assets.

    Russia, EU, US & probably even China all have projects for high altitude(near space) "manned" aircraft and the fact is within the next 2-3 decades spaceflight will more likely than not become a daily routine for more advanced countries and countries without that tech will have no choice but to become puppets of or under the control of countries that do possess that tech. And that means Iran cutting funding for Space Program and slowing down advancements in space launch vehicles is probably the biggest historical mistake of the Rohani administration.

    That said, I honestly don't see how any well informed Iranian (such as yourself) can make a logical argument against Ti production especially since nearly half it's mining & production process is nearly identical to that of AL mining & production that is also vital for Iran to increase and when it comes to Ti production it's not a matter of technology rather funding. Not to mention the fact that due to sanction on our Oil industry one of the best way's to circumvent these sanctions so they can turn in Iran's benefit in the future is to use our own fuel to increase domestic production and by producing Ti we'll be hitting two birds with one stone both by satisfying the needs of our Aerospace industry & automobile industry for Al & Ti and by turning our oil into product because Ti & Al production require a lot of energy which we have an abundant supply of that we can turn into easy to produce Diesel rather than sell..... Add to that advancements made in Ti casting and Ti printing with ample Ti mines at home and I honestly don't see why we haven't done this already and I believe IRGC should be leading the way when it comes to Ti production at home since it seems that they are the only ones that can actually get things done.

    It's funny how we Iranian's have no problem if our government goes out and spends $20 Billion USD on foreign passenger aircraft but God forbid we spend $1Billion on production of Ti to slowly work towards developing the supplies and infrastructure needed to produce our own passenger Aircraft, fighter jets,.....

    And Iran investing in a domestic 5th or 6th gen Ti based airframe & a high thrust engine isn't simply about the fighter jet because advancements made in that technology in the defense sector will trickle down to your Civil Aviation sector and your ability to produce more capable Passenger and transport Aircraft just as the production of Military Naval vessels trickled down to Iran's civil naval sector because at the end of the day many of the requirements from human resources to part, materials, tools and infrastructure are very similar and in the future we will need that very same infrastructure for near space and in the future space flights and we achieve today has to also take into account what we plan on achieving both in the military and civilian sector 30-50 years from now.

    Your fears about Iranian drones are really wrong and that's a lot of speculation. I am absolutely certain that Iran will surprise you and demolish your arguments. I'm sure that about drones, Iran is as advanced as China. Russia is still behind.

    2 examples that shows that we do not know everything about irannian drones and their advancement. What about drones we never see? Iran always says they have weapons that they have never show us so you have to be careful and do not over conclude. 31932748_2080496185502268_3078173571797745664_n.jpg
