  3. if this a un maned a/c does the air force have the ability to self destruct the a/c larry

  4. No, these UAVs don't have a built in self destruction system as they are mainly used to spy over populated areas. Under usual circumstances, once operators looses control of the UAV, USAF fighter jets are called in to shoot down the unresponsive drone before it can cross the international borders of Afghanistan. airspace.

    If we are to believe the US / ISAF version then i think either the UAV was flying near/inside the Iranian border therefore there wan't any time to shot it down with out a major international incident.
