The Pentagon has shown a video of shooting down of a Su-22 warplane belonging to the Syrian Arab Air Force (SAAF) and an Iranian-made Shahed-129 unmanned combat aerial vehicle (UCAV) in Syria last June.

The Su-22 warplane was downed by a US Navy F/A-18E multirole fighter in southern Raqqah on June 18 after the US-backed Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) claimed that the Su-22 carried out airstrikes on some target near the SDF. The incident took place south the SDF-held town of Tabqah where government forces, supported by the SAAF, were advancing against ISIS.

According to the recent reports, the Su-22’s pilot is still missing.

The Shahed-129 UCAV was downed by an American F-15E multirole fighter in southeastern Syria on June 20. The Shahed-129 UCAV was providing an air cover for government forces advancing near the US garrison of At Tanf on the Syrian-Iraqi border. The US-led coalition had set up this garrison in an attempt to build a buffer zone between Syria and Iraq. However, this effort failed.

    The US spent all this time prepping the pilots in the US military version until they could get it right and do lot of heavy editing of the communications records, way too many allied Military centers monitoring the same frequencies. Then you get the most bleached version of it given and this guy lies longer than a Sidewalk.
