    Iranian Version of RQ-170 Drone Makes Maiden Flight: Commander
    November 10, 2014 - 10:20
    TEHRAN (Tasnim) – The Iranian version of the US advanced RQ-170 Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV) has flown, commander of the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) Aerospace Force announced on Monday.

    Speaking on the sidelines of a ceremony to mark anniversary of the martyrdom of Brigadier General Hassan Tehrani-Moqaddam, the father of Iran's missile program, in Tehran, Brigadier General Amir Ali Hajizade said the footage of the locally-made drone in the air will be released soon.

    On May 11, the drone was unveiled in a ceremony attended by Supreme Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyed Ali Khamenei and IRGC Commander Major General Mohammad Ali Jafari.

    Experts at the IRGC Aerospace Force manufactured the stealth drone through reverse engineering.

    On December 10, 2013, Lieutenant Commander of the IRGC Brigadier General Hossein Salami had told reporters that Iran has managed to reverse engineer most parts of its version of the US RQ-170 Sentinel stealth drone.

    “Most of the works regarding the manufacturing of Iranian (version) of RQ-170 drone have been done,” Salami said at the time.

    On December 4, 2011, an American Lockheed Martin RQ-170 sentinel unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) was captured by Iranian forces near the city of Kashmar in northeastern Iran.

    The drone was brought down by the Iranian Armed Forces’ electronic warfare unit which commandeered the aircraft and safely landed it.

    Earlier, Iran announced it had completed decoding the surveillance data and software extracted from the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) drone.

    After capturing the aircraft, Iran had announced that it intended to carry out reverse engineering on the captured RQ-170 Sentinel stealth aircraft, which is similar in design to a US Air Force B-2 stealth bomber.

    Iran test flies RQ-170 drone
    Tehran, Nov 10, IRNA - Commander of the Aerospace Division of the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) Brigadier General Amir-Ali Hajizadeh said on Monday that Iran has successfully tested a domestically produced version of the RQ-170 sophisticated stealth drone .


    Talking to reporters, Hajizadeh also announced that several missile projects will be unveiled in near future.



    The US RQ-170 Sentinel has been reverse-engineered by IRGC experts in about two years.



    The aircraft was downed with minimal damage by the Iranian Army's electronic warfare unit on December 4, 2011, while flying over the Iranian city of Kashmar, some 225 kilometers (140 miles) from the Afghan border.

    Well the downing of the plan was also denied and mocked . But then we silenced the ones who said we are lying . Now let wait for some time and then the crushing answer will come.

    TEHRAN: Iran said Monday that a copy of an American drone downed over its territory in 2011 had successfully completed its first test flight, promising to release footage of the experiment.

    Tehran captured the US RQ-170 Sentinel in December 2011 while it was in its airspace, apparently on a mission to spy on the country’s nuclear sites, media in the United States reported.

    Iran said it had taken control of the ultra hi-tech drone and forced it down in the desert where it was recovered nearly intact.

    Washington says the drone crashed after experiencing a technical glitch.

    In May, a military official said Iranian engineers had successfully built a replica of the American drone and that it would soon take a test flight.

    Images broadcast by state television at the time appeared to show two near-identical drones.

    “As promised, we have conducted the flight and a film of it will be broadcast shortly,” General Amir-Ali Hadjizadeh, commander of the Revolutionary Guards air wing, was quoted as saying by the corps’ own website.

    Apart from a fast-moving ballistic weapons programme, Iran has been producing drones since 2010 which the defence ministry says are capable of firing missiles with a range of 1,000 kilometres (more than 600 miles).

    Tehran says its weapons programes are purely for defensive purposes, but the United States whose Fifth Fleet is based in Bahrain across the Gulf has often voiced concerns.
