On February 25, the Syrian Army shot down a unmanned combat aerial vehicle of the Turkish Air Force over eastern Idlib, according to a video released by Syrian media. The downed drone was identified as the TAI Anka, a family of unmanned aerial vehicles developed for the Turkish Armed Forces. The Turkish military likely used the UAV to support the ongoing advance on positions of the Syrian Army in the area of Nayrab.

    Thanks for the drone hardware intel, Erdogan. Russian and Syrian scientist should be able to work out jamming or hacks rendering all your other ones of this design useless. Too bad – it looks kind of expensive.

    • Jakke1899

      Well, the Turks will just say:”Hey, that’s not ours, it’s an Amazon delivery drone!”

      • Pave Way IV

        But they found an angry little Turk inside the drone with his military ID card. He demanded the Syrians get off Ottoman land, then ran away towards the Turkish border. The Syrians were so stunned that they just let him go.

      • Zionism = EVIL

        Actually, the technology for all drones was given by their Jew masters along with upgrade kits for the WW2 vintage M-60 sardine cans that are being blown to hell by Russia and Syrian airforces. The Turkeys are primitive savages who buy other people’s stuff and then put their arsewipe flag on it.

    • Vitex

      I reckon it’s way to Iran as we speak :)

  • Good job, men. Keep on making more scrap for the national rebuilding. Syrian mills and crucibles are hungry. A bunch of kinetically-disassembled Turkler equipment will suffice.

  • Hyper19

    Looks like it crashed rather than shot down.

    • Hishamsbr

      What are you an expert in the field of military armed drones ? Please enlighten us further.

      • Hyper19

        You don’t need to be an “expert” to see that there are no fire, heat or shrapnel damage and its still well together.

        • seawolf

          And what if Syrians hacked it and tried to land but failed?

    • swedish_viking

      It doesn’t matter if was downed by by electronic warfare or a anti aircraft gun/rocket/missile.
      Or do you think it crashed by it self?

      • Hyper19

        Like i said below there are no heat or shrapnel damage, what makes it most likely comms failure.

        • swedish_viking

          It’s more likely that it was downed by EW or anti-air.
          There isn’t picture with enough resolution to draw that kind of conclusions.
          If it was downed by EW than it would look like it crashed by it self.
          It’s more likely that it was downed over enemy territory than crashing of it’s own.

          • Hyper19

            I don’t see any proof of anti-air damage on the video and since Turkish droness regularly fly above idlib, im still skeptical.

          • Ronald

            “Turkish drones regularly fly above Idlib”, where did you get that, Syrian air space has been closed to Turkey for quite a while.

          • swedish_viking

            Electronic warfare doesn’t leave any traces other than a crashed drone.
            Syria has been clear that it will down any Turkish aircraft that enter Syria.
            Turkey despite that sends in an armed drone that gets downed in Syria.
            You can see what’s left of the ammunition in the video so we know that the drone was armed.
            You are free to think it crashed by it self but i think the probability that is was downed deliberately is much bigger.
            ANKA-S isn’t known to crash.

  • Xoli Xoli

    Turkey army only knows Jihadists war.It will never be intergrated in NATO. Membership is only for the base.

  • Antimondialiste

    why russia did not shot it down when it entered syria

    • swedish_viking

      Hard to guess but maybe they wanted to shot it down over a controlled area.
      Maybe they wanted it to not be to close to the border and risk a discussion of which side of the border it was shot down.

      • goingbrokes

        Yes the drone is relatively intact (I mean it is in one piece, of course it’s completely broken), and the field seems peaceful, so no battles raging in the background. Looks to me like this was electronically captured and guided to a field inside Syria, well away from the battlefields.

        • swedish_viking

          EW is one possibility.
          I can’t argue against that.

    • GuyQ

      Russians don’t do what Syrians can do.

  • Free man

    For those who do not live in an Islamist state, it is difficult to understand the war rhetoric that comes out of the mouths of this Islamists as opposed to what is really happening on the battlefield.
    They are threatening to start a third world war but in practice they are afraid of their own shadow.
    Erdogan will declare that the mighty Turkish army has killed hundreds of Syrian soldiers and destroyed 500 tanks today. And if the Syrian army does not withdraw from the places it captured the Turkish response will be even more severe. But in reality the Turkish army is being humiliated every day in Syria.

    • Hishamsbr

      What about war rhetoric coming out of Christian-western capitals, and the zionist entities mouth everyday.

      If Muslims would just be left alone, their would be no war in the MENA

      • JerryDrake

        All Islam religions have same war rethoric. On the other hand, when you say “Christian war rethoric” you are very wrong. It is Catolic or Protestant war rethoric. Orthodox christians are completely different story.

        • Simplekindof Man

          Jesus taught only of love and forgiveness.
          The rest is political machinations in the name of it (Christianity) for the idiotic masses.
          He even said “turn the other cheek”!
          I mean what other form of non violence can you think off more powerful than that?

      • Free man

        1. It’s hard to understand Erdogan’s rhetoric. Why does he threaten if in practice he cannot do what he says?
        That was also my question about the mullahs regime.
        2. The vast majority of Muslims killed in wars were killed by Muslims. that’s a fact.
        3. Did you mean US and Israeli threats? It seems to me that they have no problem acting even without threats.

      • EveryoneIsBiased

        Sure. Not that the whole islamic world is a continous history of tribal, sectarian, hatred based violence.
        ;)
        How cute and naive.
        The divide and conquer stragey of the Anglo saxons only worked, because they only needed to use the already existing hatred, and archaic tribal and sectarian flames.
        They did not invent those. They were always there. And they are still the reason, why the MENA has and is the most violent region in the world.
        Without overcoming the archaic tribal and sectarian mindest, the region will stay a vionlent mess, from the scale of countries, right down to the smallest village.
        Vionlence and sharia law are the only social controlling methods, and they are the problem, not a solution.

      • Barba_Papa

        What Christian Western capitals? Except for Washington there are none. Newsflash, Mr. Islamist, it’s not 1100 AD any more. With the exception of the US Christianity is dead in the West/ More people go to a mosque then to church in any European country.

      • GuyQ

        Why slow down? They must capture Erdogan and bring him to justice.

        • Free man

          LOL.
          At the current speed, this is really going to happen.
