I’m not really sure if this is an appropriate topic for this venue, but if not here, where?
The most obvious question is, after all, WTH IS this thing? Apparently no one knows or, knowing, is commenting.
The second question, less obvious, has to be why would the military destroy it without answering the first question? If it had enough value to hidden away for future use against us, I would think it would be worth knowing its purpose, mechanism, etc.
Steering clear of political / policy matters, any comments / ideas?
