The Iranian Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) used a Mohajer-4B unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) to film several U.S. Navy warships, including USS Boxer, few days ago, Iranian sources revealed on July 20.

A day earlier, the IRGC released the video taken by the Mohajer-4B, denying U.S. claims of shooting it down. The video shows USS Boxer being escorted by several other warships in the Strait of Hormuz.

The Mohajer-4B is the most modern variant of the Mohajer-4 family. The UAV was designed for reconnaissance. It has a fixed, forward-facing camera for navigation as well as an expanded payload bay that can carry an IR\EO system and a downward-facing surveying camera at the same time.

The UAV, which was first presented in 2011, has a flight ceiling of 4,5km, a maximum speed of 200km, an operational radius of 200km and an endurance of 6 hours.

The Pentagon claimed that it has a video showing the downing of the Iranian UAV near the USS Boxer. However, the alleged video has not been released, so far, which supports the IRGC’s claims.

    Of course they didn’t shoot it down. If they had this footage, it would be non stop cycling in the MSM news cycles. The Pentagon would have immediately released it.

    Oh, great. Another Pentagon cropped, fuzzy 250 x 150 pixel black and white image of something blowing up somewhere. Who can possibly question the credibility of the Pentagon and that kind of solid evidence? Your move, Iran.

      Nah, they ofc have the footage but putting it out there would only make them look silly after pounding themselves on the chest for shooting down a $130 Iranian drone after Iran shot down a $130.000.000 drone of theirs.

    Did anything at all happen? Is this just a cheap lie to make it look like American retaliation – although it actually makes them look weak? Might they have shot down one o their own drones? That would be hilarious if the Iranians can release pictures of the event!

    Let’s not forget about Iranian flight 656, where American warship fire and downed airliner. So, in this contextual speak specially for that purpose, they’ve equiped that wasrship with Sams. Because seem that this Boxer doesn’t have any AA weaponry.

    Have a talk with the Israelis, they have a lot of resources in Iran. I am confident they can take out everybody they like where ever he lives. The piont is who is the best victim to launch an uprising.
