    JF-17 fighter jet of Pakistan Air Force shoots down Iran-made spy drone

    [​IMG]

    Pakistan Air Force shot down an Iranian spy drone flying in Panjgur airspace.

    The incident is first of its kind in the history of two Islamic countries, which share a 900-km-long porous border.

    A JF-17 fighter jet shot down a spy drone belonging to the Iranian regime. Pakistan Defence, a military analysis group, reported, “Air Force JF-17 Thunder fighter intercepted an armed Government of Iran drone 49km inside Pakistan & shot it down for showing hostile intent.”

    Interesting. Woodcomp is a Czech propeller company. Rotax engines are used all over the world, and popular in many UAVs (including US, Russian, and Pakistani models)

    unlikely that the UAV would belong to Iran. Entries on the body are not related to Iran.

    That really doesn't mean much unless Iran is in the habit of scraping the labels off all the foreign things they receive. Pop open the cowlings on my helicopter and you'll find labels from a dozen different countries on various parts and pieces.

    Iran now produces all kinds of wankel engines, we do not need to enter them.
