Iran seems to be in possession of the same RQ-170 drone that the Iranian military said it shot down Sunday, Fox News reported Monday according to military sources.

US officials failed to say whether or not Iranians shot the unmanned spy plane down, as per Iranian reports.

Iran on Sunday said that its military had downed the drone, causing minimal damage to the top-secret US aircraft. Shortly after those reports, NATO said that the drone may have been one that went missing during a mission in Afghanistan the week before.
