    looks like one shot with an RPG7 would take it out...

    and the flying boats linked at the end are even less threatening...

    You've gotta wonder how long they've been testing that one. I've seen that particular UFO design in one of those UFO documentaries over the decades.

    You're trying to tell me a eight century theocratic leadership and a nutbag dictator has two agencies like this, who can do this? Mmm. I have my doubts.

    My God, the Iranians have reverse engineered our most advanced top secret Walmart and Hobby Shack technology!

    They've also stolen Adobe's classified Photoshop technology and used it to alter pictures before. I suspect the UFO is either Photoshopped or just a stock image, and regardless, by the press release's own strange admission it's small enough to fly "indoors," so it's at most a couple feet across.

    By the way, the Iranian Students' New Agency released a completely different image of what it looks like:

    ^Honestly, the saucer looks CGI in the press photo. It appears to be an untextured and unshaded material lit with some backdrop-only radiosity. It's only because it's so blurry and grainy that it doesn't look even more fake.

    Wow. What a breakthrough use of off-the-shelf technology. Word in the Intelligence Community is that this thing actually uses rechargeable batteries. :eek:

    Oddly enough, Ahmadinejad sounds just like I expected.
