US officials haven’t “officially” confirmed the loss of their RQ-170 Sentinel drone over Iran, but it is a well-established fact. The question now isn’t if the drone is gone, but how much the loss of the drone will mean to America’s technological advantage in drone technology. Russia and China are already chomping at the bit to get a look, and experts say there is a considerable threat of reverse engineering, particularly since the footage suggests there wasn’t much damage. Still, exactly how much US technology went into the RQ-170 will likely remain a mystery, as US officials decline comment.
