U.S.-Led Coalition Drone Crashes In Iraq’s Al-Anbar (Photos)

Support SouthFront

On June 25, an unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) of the U.S.-led coalition crashed in the al-Qathif Valley in the western Iraqi province of al-Anbar.

Iraqi sources claimed that the UAV was an MQ-9 Reaper. Nevertheless, photos of the wreckage revealed that it was a Boeing Insitu ScanEagle 2.

The drone, which entered service with the U.S. military in 2014, has a speed of up to 148 km/h, a maximum operating altitude of 5,950 m and an endurance of more than 16 hours.

ScanEagle 2 has a day and night capable sensor, an increased payload, a fully digital video system, a better navigation system, an Ethernet-based architecture, a reduced electronic magnetic interference and a new ground control station.

A drone of the same type crashed in al-Anbar last January as result of what was called back then a “a technical failure.”

The U.S.-led coalition is apparently using ScanEagle 2 UAVs to monitor al-Anbar’s vast desert, which is known to be the main stronghold of ISIS in Iraq.

“The U.S.-led coalition is apparently using ScanEagle 2 UAVs to monitor al-Anbar’s vast desert, which is known to be the main stronghold of ISIS in Iraq.”

It’s pretty obvious to the entire planet that CENTCOM has selectively guarded al Anbar, ignoring their own anti-Assad CIA ISIS and bombing any rogue ISIS that won’t work for us. At Tanf is just our Syrian branch of the same thing for leftover al Qaeda and their terrorist families.
