Iran Say Data Fully-Extracted From US Drone
â€śYes, we have fully extracted the droneâ€™s data…,â€ť the IRGC Public Relations Department said on Wednesday, referring to the ScanEagle drone — a long-endurance aircraft built by Insitu, a subsidiary of Boeing.
â€śThe drone, in addition to gathering military data, used to pursue gathering data in the field of energy, especially the transfer of oil from Iranâ€™s oil terminals,â€ť the department said.
It said that the capture of the aircraft helps discovery of â€śwhat kind of data they (the Americans) are after.â€ť
Regarding the US denial of the existence of the aerial vehicle in its drone fleet, the department said, â€śThe reaction, the Americans have to the capture of their drones indicates the importance of this matter to them. This is not something they can easily deny.â€ť
