NATO initially said the drone may have been one that was flying a mission over western Afghanistan before operators "lost control" of it.
Sounds like it developed a technical glitch and strayed into Iranian airspace to crash, no biggie IMHO.

Iranians will share this technology with the Russians and the Chinese, in addition to using it themselves.
It strayed on crashed after losing functionality then, if it had been "shot" there wouldn't be much left of the wreck to look at anyway, since a drone has a pretty small surface area.
