Iran's PressTV reported Thursday that an Iranian Army "electronic warfare unit" downed the plane, suggesting some kind of computer attack — and not bullets or a missile — took down the RQ-170.

Analysts have been mixed on just what Iran might glean from the super-secret aircraft. Some say the RQ-170 is already outdated, as are most of its subsytems; others say seizing the aircraft is an intelligence coup for Tehran.
