9. Lockheed Martin RQ-170 Sentinel

Note that the wiki article says that the Fars New Agency story says that "Iranian Electronic Warfare Units managed to take control of the UAV and take custody of it with minor damage."

It also had "tried to penetrate Iran's airspace through the eastern borders", so it was probably one of the units based in Afghanistan.

The eastern border area of Iran is unlikely to be involved with Iran's nuclear program. Most likely, either there was a malfunction and the drone inadvertently flew into Iran, or the drone was carrying out surveillance of cross-border infiltration between Iran and Afghanistan.
