Submission + - Please help identify this secret UAV Slashdot folk->

garymortimer writes: "Its not as sexy as the Beast of Kandahar RQ 170 Sentinel or as well known as a Predator. But we think the bird shaped drone that crashed in Pakistan last week might be a US special forces tool.

At first it was thought to be a home made job but packs with FMC which means Fully Mission Capable written on them and an American date style as well really points to something else.

sUAS News is not AvWeek or Flight International so getting scoops is tricky whilst holding down a day job.

Our exclusive pictures of the damaged C130 that struck an RQ170 was pretty good for us.

We would love to identify this drone.

Maybe it is just a homebrew job, maybe its not.

People of Slashdot I call for your help.

Its not a Festo Smartbird though, the most popular choice of pundits."
