This is coolbert:
"That platform [Global Hawk UAV] was sent to be sacrificed in an effort to fine tune our intelligence of Iranian anti air order of battle."
BAMS-D = (Broad Area Maritime Surveillance-Demonstrator). Global Hawk.
American Global Hawk drone as shot-down by the Iranian. Much more to the story than is realized?
From Soldier of Foirtune [SoF] by Babatim Free range international.
"U.S. Navy Suckers Iran into Shooting Down Surplus Drone: Scores Big Intelligence Coup"
"Intentionally or not, in the current contest of wills with Iran, the United States is now in a dominant geo -political and military position. Intentionally or not, the United States now has the most accurate, comprehensive, intelligence on Iran’s order of battle that any adversary has ever harvested from its opponent in history."
American drone as shot-down by the Iranian sent in a provocative manner so as to be engaged and destroyed by Iranian air defense. A sacrifice worth the cost of a demonstrator model about to be scrapped? So is the THEORY!
THE ENTIRE AIR DEFENSE NETWORK OF THE IRANIAN WOULD HAVE BECOME ACTIVE IN RESPONSE TO THE INTRUSION [DELIBERATE] OF THE UAV! RADARS, COMMUNICATION NETS, AIR INTERCEPTORS, MISSILE FIRING BATTERIES ALL AT THE READY. AMERICAN MILITARY FORCES POISED FOR ACTION VERY VALUABLE INTELLIGENCE GAINED!!
See recent blog entries as germane: [note the Triton drone is not the same as the Global Hawk]
