DoD to get a new, cheaper manufacturer of RQ-170 Sentinel spy drones?

At least, Lockheed Martin should heed this possibility:

Parviz Sorouri, member of the Majlis Committee on National Security and Foreign Policy, said that his country will "mass produce" the drones in the near future. He also said that the Iranian version would be "of higher quality" than the original RQ-170 Sentinel, according to the Press TV report.
Globalization and its unexpected fruit...

After all, we all know where the new competitors of Lockheed Martin will go for parts. Same place.

Update: At the Elders' HQ we've read this headline with some interest:

Iran Nearly Finished Decoding U.S. Drone, Tehran Claims

Of course, our operatives have been kind enough to get the decoded text in its current state (in exchange the Ayatollahs were promised that we'll fill in the blanks for them). Here it comes:

Volunteers to parse the text are welcome.

This by the same idiots that executed 14 squirrels for spying?  Right.

They grew up since. They are into dogs now.

I still have trouble believing Iran actually hacked the drone down to a soft landing. Why cover up the landing gear, as they did, unless the whole thing was a styrofoam model?
