We shouldn't have had a drone near there airspace to begin with. Thats our war mongering Democratic Party's work at hand.

Iran has not directly attacked us or harmed us in anyway so why do we have drones monitoring them. Why do we have severe sanctions against them. Why are we provoking them into war?

I support Israels right to exist peacefully and if an ally is attacked then we should immediately come to their assistance via Airplanes and bombs, but Iran has not attacked Israel, and Iran has not attacked anyone directly in the region.

Some would say that Iran has attacked Israel via Gaza and Hezbollah which has some truth, but again our democratic led government has failed to uphold our treaties with our ally because we did not immediately come to the aid of Israel when Rockets are fired from GAZA into Israel.

So theres two or three dings against our Democratic led government right away.
Fact are important, They should be presented first, opinions will vary.

Re: JUST-IN: Pentagon Confirms Iranian Pilots Tried & Failed to Shoot Down US Drone Last Week in Intn'l Airspace over Persian Gulf
Yeah right,like they couldn't shoot it down,that's complete bullshit.

Drone specs...

•Wing Span: 55 ft (17m)
•Length: 27 ft (8m)
•Powerplant: Rotax 914 Turbo
•Max Gross Takeoff Weight: 2,300 lb (1043 kg)
•Fuel Capacity: 625 lb (284 kg)
•Payload Capacity: 450 lb int. (204 kg)
•300 lb ext. (136 kg)
•Max Altitude: 25,000 ft
•Max Endurance: 40 hr
•Max Air Speed: 120 KTAS <---------- NOTE THE AIRSPEED.
•Line-of-Sight: C-Band
•Over-the-Horizon: Ku-Band SATCOM

Notice the MAXIMUM Airspeed of 120 KTAS (although I have heard it is closer to 140 KTAS)...


SU-25 Specs...

VARIANT Su-25 Su-39
Length 47 ft, 6 in (14.6 m) 14.52 m

Weight 17,600kg (loaded) 21500 kg
Maximum Speed .8 Mach 950 km/h <------ NOTE THE AIRSPEED
Maximum Ceiling 7000 meters 10000 meters
Service Ceiling 7000 meters
Maximum Range Unknown 2500 km
Cruise range 750nm 650 - 900 km
Combat Range 1,250 km (with drop tanks)

Yeah 120 KTAS to .8 Mach...maybe they couldn't fly slow enough to hit the so called "Predator"

Some folks just lack common sense I suppose. wtf

Please explain how, in this day in age, does a missile miss?
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 9414469


Missiles miss all the time. Best missile hit rates are only in the 90% range. But in this case, they were using 30mm cannons. Probably just taking pot shots at it for fun.

Just coming in on multiple MSM sources.

Will post updates.

 Quoting: DoorBert


This should be pinned because a much smaller IRANIAN drone was shot down by Israeli jet fighters just a few weeks ago over Israel !!

This speaks volumes in terms of what the Russians allowed the Iranians to have on their Sukhoy SU jetfighters as Aiming and tracking devices .
Don't forget the Sukhoy is the only jetfighter that allows for the Cobra manuver , bassically stoping the airplane in the air on a vertical with the nose pointing Back ! Hence the manuvrability of the SU is not an issue ...


[link to www.wired.com]


Two Iranian jets recently tried and failed to shoot down an unarmed MQ-1 Predator drone flying a surveillance mission over the Persian Gulf, the Pentagon disclosed Thursday. Despite the best efforts of Iranian pilots, the slow-flying robot returned to its Middle Eastern base unharmed.

The incident took place on Nov. 1 just before 5 a.m. Washington time, Pentagon chief spokesman George Little revealed on Thursday.

The Predator was conducting a “routine surveillance” mission 16 nautical miles off the coast of Iran when two Iranian Su-25 Frogfoot attack jets, which usually shoot at targets on the ground, “intercepted” the drone.

The Iranian pilots engaged in something of a 21st-century dogfight, turning their 30-mm guns on the Predator on at least two passes. " ...
