They hacked into the control signals and brought the UAV in for
a landing, apparently. Probably overrode some commands that made
it imperative that the UAV land itself. They are autonomous for
the most part and are programmed before the mission as to route,
destination and altitude,etc. Bombing and live fire is carried
out by the operators back in their bunkers in Arizona. The
captured UAV is in pristine shape and likely is being analyzed
by the Iranians.Expect copies in the next few years and limited
deployment.

BTW-the bandwidth required to operate these things is very large
and limits operations to some extent as the satellite feeds to
the UAVs (plus some ground-based transmissions in the cases of
limited range border security drones) is strained. Signal is
channeled through ground-based transmitter/receivers,
satellites, loitering aircraft in friendly territory and benign
drones in safe territory.

Recent releases by the USAF/USN/US Army indicate they need more
satellite comm to control their UAVs. One current UAV utilizes
half the bandwidth (approx. 500Gbs) of the total bandwidth
employed by the US Armed forces during Desert Storm in one day.
UAVs are not flown un-neccesarily and like the limited amount of
B-2 (19) and the pretty much grounded F-117As precludes
sightings of same as possible culprits for UFO reports.

Lots of Chinese lanterns however.
