In the noon of June 22, the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) shot down an armed unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV), which was heading towards Hama airbase, west of the governorate’s city center.

Syrian journalist Abdul Ghani Jaroukh released several photos of the downed UAV, which was armed with ten small-diameter munitions filled with high-explosives.

The UAV’s design appears to be identical to the ones usually used by Hay’at Tahrir al-Sham (HTS), the former branch of al-Qaeda in Syria. The terrorist group began using this type of DIY armed UAVs in early 2018.

Hama airbase is one of three key air fields in central Syria. The airbase is hosing several squadrons of the Syrian Arab Air Force (SyAAF). Some Russian units are also deployed there.

In the last two months, HTS and its Turkish-backed allies intensified their drones and rockets attacks on Hama airbase. However, they failed to cause any serious damage.

        Once you cut out their NATO suppliers, that is what their indigenous products look like.

        • Mustafa Mehmet

          , what you waiting for cut the supply. then you will find out what Turkey got you have no clue whatsoeve

            Once you take delivery of S-400 you will see how fast your defense industry collapses.

          • Mustafa Mehmet

            Deal done already. what’s wrong with S400 you not to worry about the our defense

          • Joe Dickson

            You haven’t suffered the sanctions yet.

          • Mustafa Mehmet

            Everyone will lose, whoever wants to sanction Türkiye we can survive no problem

          • Rob

            If Pakistan can servive under strong sanctions then any country can survive.

            Don’t worry every one will join sanction club and then America will left lonely. It means that in reality America gradually sanction himself.

      • Mustafa Mehmet

        No chance

  • Rodger

    Not quite in the same class as the one Iran shot down. :)

    • FlorianGeyer

      Lol.

  • Rob

    Dumb bombs used by these drones are not good. For security reasons Iran officials should not allow any foreign country’s officials in Iran for next five years.They may be officials from UK, France, Germany, America etc. Saudi Arabia massacres civilians in Yemen with US and UK assistance.

  • Rob

    Due to budget limitation UK government cannot keep their own projects continue in America.

  • kolokol

    If it was ‘shot down’ why don’t I see any battle damage?

    • goingbrokes

      A hole through the main body is all you need (a square hole because of the plywood).

      • kolokol

        True, like a hole in the head I suppose. Still I’m curious. Was it shot down with a single very well aimed round? Also, no prop damage. I’m not saying it didn’t happen, I just want more detail.

        • goingbrokes

          It is remarkably undamaged.

          • kolokol

            I looked again and I can imagine a bullet hole in the side coming up thru the pop and tearing the plywood skin. Was this taken down by an ace sniper?

  • Xoli Xoli

    Turkey made big mistake.SAA is armed and loaded.Try again.

    • ʕノ•ᴥ•ʔノ ︵ ┻━┻ ( ͡ʘ ͜ʖ ͡ʘ)╭∩╮

  • gustavo

    terrorists are every time better equiped with better weapons thanks to Turkey (NATO member) support to them.Those stupid ceasefires really bring a lot of benefits to terrorists and Turkey.
