The U.S. have shot down an Iranian drone using anti-drone technology. According to a report in the Wall Street Journal, the drone near the American warship USS Boxer in the Strait of Hormuz was brought down using new technology that had just been added to US naval defenses encompassing anti-drone defeat capabilities.

It was the latest move by the U.S. military to deploy more furtive measures against Iran, allegedly taking place after the drone came within 1,000 yards of the warship and ignoring multiple calls to stand down. However, Iran denies the claims and says all of its drones are accounted for.
