Iran shoots down a U.S. drone as situation veers ever closer to conflict

On Wednesday evening, the Iranian Revolutionary Guard shot down a U.S. MQ-4C Triton drone. Iran claims that the drone was flying in Iranian airspace. The United States denies this and says the drone was in international airspace. But either way, the action increases the risk of direct military conflict between the United States and Iran. U.S. officials confirmed the shoot-down of the Triton, a long-range surveillance drone capable of flying for over 30 hours at speeds of almost 400 mph. It is not known to carry weapons, but can serve as an acquisition system, pointing out targets for missiles and aircraft. Iran claims that the Triton was shot down using a Sayyad surface-to-air missile that is part of Iran’s Raad air defense system. The Iranian-designed missiles have a range of about 60 miles. Iran broadcast the claims of the action soon after it occurred. According to CNN, a Revolutionary Guard leader signaled that the shoot-down was “a warning to the U.S,” and that Iran does “not want war with any country, but we are completely, and totally, ready and prepared for war.« U.S. Central Command spokesperson Bill Urban confirmed that the drone had been downed, but denied that the drone had been in Iranian airspace. »Iranian reports that the aircraft was over Iran are false,« said Urban. »This was an unprovoked attack on a U.S. surveillance asset in international airspace." The incident comes just days after the United States deployed 1,000 additional troops and additional military equipment to the region, and a week after the release of a video that the administration claimed showed Iranian forces removing an unexploded mine from the side of a tanker. The tanker was one of two damaged last week by what the U.S. described as limpet mines deployed by Iran, though the tanker’s owner has disagreed with U.S. reports. U.S. analysts indicated Iran as the only likely suspect in the tanker attacks, and Trump appeared on Fox News to say, “It was them that did it.” The downing of the Triton may not have led to any injuries, but it seems all too similar to an incident 30 years ago in which a U.S. warship sent into the Straits of Hormuz by Ronald Reagan struck what was identified as an Iranian mine—and kicked off a brief but deadly exchange.

American Honda Redesigns Chevy Pickup

When American Honda Motor Co. Inc. (AHM) started its business in 1959, the company purchased a small fleet of Chevy pickups to deliver motorcycles to its fledgling dealers across Southern California.American Honda restored a truck to authentically match the one in an iconic photo circa 1961 in front of AHM's original office at 4077 Pico Blvd. in Los Angeles, to mark the company's 60th anniversary.“Tapping its U.S. archives and memories of retired Honda associates for details, a 1961 Chevy half-ton pickup was found and carefully renovated; replicating the original paint scheme as used by company salesmen delivering motorcycles to dealers to sell on a consignment basis. These trucks helped American Honda quickly establish a U.S. market foothold, starting in Southern California. By 1965, Honda was the best-selling motorcycle brand in America with a market share of almost 72 percent,” says American Honda.The truck was given a mild mechanical freshening makeover besides new factory-correct white paint and hand-painted graphics like the originals. To give the olden days feel, two vintage motorcycles, a Honda 50 and CB160, like those originally carried in the trucks, are placed in the truck bed. The truck along with the bikes is now on display in the lobby of American Honda's Torrance, California headquarters.There is a lot in the pipeline regarding the public display before the truck eventually reaches the American Honda Collection Hall in Torrance, where it will be staged in front of a replica of the company's original Los Angeles office. The display plan includes the 2019 SEMA Show and other events around the country, as well as classic vehicle gatherings around Southern California.Delivery Truck Basic Specs:·        Half-ton chassis·        8 ft. bed·        283 cu. in. V8 engine·        160 HP·        3-speed manual transmissionThe two important motorcycles from those early days were also procured, helping recreate what the package looked like as salesmen traveled around the state to support their dealers. A red 1965 Honda 50, known in other parts of the world as the Super Cub, occupies the left side of the truck bed. Honda 50 Basic Specs:·        Pressed steel, step-through monocoque frame·        49cc single-cylinder pushrod engine·        3-speed semi-automatic transmission with centrifugal clutchThe other bike is an original 1965 Honda CB160, one of Honda's early small displacement sport bikes.Click on the slideshow for a sneak peek at the truck.  https://www.blouinartinfo.com/              Founder: Louise Blouin
