The title of this article should read: “US taxpayer chumps lose a drone in Syria.” The murderous, diabolical HeimyYid ZionistJew regime sucks about $3.8 BILLION from its whore each year. Oy vey!

I wouldn’t call 70% hit rate excellent…
They are at early 60s level SAM accuracy.
Which would be excellent if the year was 1962…

In major Chinese cities, you can buy amazing quality, retail-level, drones, really quite cheaply, in the tech markets…corridors of small merchant stalls selling these things.

It has started. The taliban victory has been only the first shot. And I see that Turkey is on board. Putin’s diplomacy is starting to pay off.

And the Ruskis lost 5 drones this year…so?

Small class recon drones – a percentage of these things are expected to be lost in active use. A US small class recon model was just shot down over Yemen too. Small class recon drones are slow and vulnerable – a localized eye in the sky tactical tool – but in reality all sides expect to lose a percentage them in use. Though, in this case, looks like IDF wont fess up if hit by localized Syrian ground to air fire.
