The US military lost an RQ-170 Sentinel drone over Iran — the same type of stealth craft the Islamic Republic claims to have shot down near its eastern border, sources confirmed to FOX News Channel Monday.
After Iran claimed Sunday that it downed a US drone — with some reports saying the vehicle was a RQ-170 Sentinel — US and NATO officials suggested that the Iranians could be referring to an unmanned craft that veered off course and crashed.
Western officials initially had not specified what kind of American drone had disappeared, but US military sources now have confirmed to FOX News that it is indeed a Sentinel the Iranians have. . .
