Recommended Posts

Washington (CNN)China has agreed to return the underwater drone that was taken earlier this week, the Pentagon said Saturday.

"We have registered our objection to China's unlawful seizure of a US unmanned underwater vehicle operating in international waters in the South China Sea. Through direct engagement with Chinese authorities, we have secured an understanding that the Chinese will return the UUV to the United States," Pentagon spokesman Peter Cook said in a statement.

LOL I wonder how long they would have held onto that drone if Barry was staying after January? How do our military men and hardware keep ending up in our adversary's hands on Barry's watch?

i would bet that drone uses the same control software and hardware as the aircraft drones and other devices used in war.

after plugging into it and downloading it, do they even need to keep the drone. 

i think they got what they wanted.

and i sure hope im wrong about this!

i am sure that the navy had a "wire wrapped around a scew" in there some where to prevent this!

Probably right. This is the direction my thought is going in. For the chinese to just give it back. Uncharacteristic of them.

Every single one of you have a fish hook stuck. That drone has been around since the 90s. They program it to sound like different classes of subs to use as a trainer for ships and planes.

A close friend still works at the Keyport division of NUWC.

What could benefit the outgoing Admin more than being able to claim they faced down the dragon and the dragon blinked first?

Then i'd be wondering if that drone caught footage of something it should not have under the ocean recently? maybe a wipe was in order!

Could be. Who knows what the hell China has been doing over there, But likely the way they have been acting recently this was more of a temper tantrum middle finger to Trump for the Taiwan issue.

 

Taiwan #1

they will return the drone, but first they will reverse engineer it and start to produce poorly made copies with a "made in china" stamp on it... :P
