Iran: We will reverse engineer RQ-170

Iran Press TV reports this evening:

Iran has announced that it intends to carry out reverse engineering on the captured RQ-170 Sentinel stealth aircraft, which is also known as the Beast of Kandahar, and is similar in design to a US Air Force B-2 stealth bomber.

We have a few thoughts for our friends in Iran.

First: You’re supposed to be ashamed about the whole reverse engineering thing. Yes, it’s true  former Nazi rocket scientists got US astronauts on the moon, but at least NASA had the decency to leave that part out of the press release.

Second: The RQ-170 and the B-2 are both lifting bodies, but that’s probably where the similarities end. As far as lifting bodies go, you might have learned more by Googling “horton brothers” and “northrop yb-49″.

Third: What the heck happened to the landing gear?

Fourth: If you figure out where the RQ-170′s intelligence-gathering sensor is, please tell us. It’s been driving us crazy, and all your videos and pictures just make it more frustrating.

Five: Admit it. Even you didn’t realize the RQ-170 is that small.

Six: Ran out of gas? Yeah, even we think that’s hilarious.

From what I can easily see we are to work good. I complete want to which we all the actual subsequent: – Bring one much more VMkernel for each and every multilevel credit card about the VMware sponsor. – Allocate just one single System cards with each VMKernel. – Ensure that the new VMKernels usually are active to the ISCSI HBA. – Established the actual multipath insurance plan to each ISCSI datastore to be able to Rounded Robin.
