The drone shot down by Iran today cost a whopping $123 million apiece – about $34 million more than Lockheed Martin’s F-35A Lightning II, the Pentagon’s next-generation fighter jets, according to Military.com, which cited Defense Department documents.

The 47-foot-long, jet-powered RQ-4A has a wingspan of about 130 feet – longer than a Boeing 737 – and can fly at altitudes of about 65,000 feet for longer than 24 hours while packed with sophisticated sensors.

“This would have been a sophisticated radar-guided surface-to-air missile that shot the aircraft down, not a shoulder-fired, heat-seeking missile,” tech news site The Drive reported.
