The vulnerability of these drones should have alarm bells ringing.

However, a US Navy spokesman later said that no US drones were missing in the Middle East.

"All our active unmanned aerial vehicles working here have been accounted for," US Fifth Fleet spokesman, Commander Jason Salata, told AFP.

“It’s quite clear that the computer codes of the United States armed forces have been compromised, which is why Iran is able to hack into them and bring them down in one piece and then study them for further developments,” columnist and political commentator Nader Mokhtari told Press TV Tuesday.

IRGC Navy Commander Rear Admiral Ali Fadavi announced on Tuesday that a US spy drone had been captured by Iranian forces over the Persian Gulf upon its violation of the Iranian airspace.

The worry must be that the enemy becomes technologically sophisticated enough to turn round the weaponised drones and send them back from whence they came.

“Yes, we have fully extracted the drone’s data...,” the IRGC Public Relations Department said on Wednesday, referring to the ScanEagle drone -- a long-endurance aircraft built by Insitu, a subsidiary of Boeing.

It is suggested elsewhere these drones are being used to see if Iran is removing the spent nuclear fuel rods from their cooling baths with the intent of producing plutonium.
