"Models" of secret RQ-170 drone to be exhibited in Iran

Speaking to reporters in Tehran on Monday, Commander of IRGC's Tehran Corps General Seyed Mohsen Kazzemeini said exhibitions will be held on the occasion of the Sacred Defense Week (September 21-28), marking the Iranians' sacrifices during the 8-year-long Iraqi imposed war on Iran in the 1980s. 

He added that models of the US RQ-170 spy drone will be displayed in one of the exhibitions due to be held in Police Park in Northeastern Tehran. 

In February 2012, the IRGC displayed a model of the United States' RQ-170 spy plane, that was "downed"  by the country's Armed Forces in December (actually in crashed) after violating the Iranian airspace, during the February 11 rallies - marking the 33rd anniversary of the victory of the Islamic Revolution in Iran. 

A model has been built by the aerospace unit of the IRGC and was displayed during the pro-government rallies in Tehran at the time. 

Iran announced on December 4 that its defense forces had downed the aircraft (yeah right) through a sophisticated cyber attack.
