Donate

On March 18, the Abkhazian Network News Agency (ANNA) released photos showing the wreckage of a Turkish unmanned combat aerial vehicle (UCAV) that was shot down by the Syrian Arab Air Defense Forces (SyAADF) over southeast Idlib last month.

The wreckage was found near Saraqib city, 100 meters away from the area where Russian pilot Maj. Roman Filipov lost his life on February 3 of 2018. The pilot blew himself up with a grenade after resisting radical militants, who attempted to capture him. The militants had shot down Filiposv’s warplane, a Su-25, with a missile.

The downed Turkish UCAV was a Bayraktar TB2. UCAVs of this type provided militants in Greater Idlib with air support during the recent confrontation, inflicting heavy losses on the Syrian Arab Army (SAA).

Despite being effective, many Bayraktar TB2s and even more advanced ANKA UCAVs were shot down by the SyAADF. The total number of downed Turkish drones is reportedly between 13 and 20.

Turkey didn’t admit all of its losses in Greater Idlib. Ankara even carried out a smear campaign against Syria’s Russian-made air-defense systems.

    Different serial number on different pieces and manufactured 3.5-4 months apart.
    Good to see serial numbers so one can keep track of pictures of different drones.
    Too bad that the serial isn’t consistent per drone so it’s easy to count the drones.

  • Zionism = EVIL

    The dumb Turkey goat fuckers had barely 72 of these Zionist copied drones to being with and have lost almost 25 in Syria and would have lost all if Putin had not given the goat fucker Erdogan a life line ceasefire. The illiterate third rate Turkeys were on the ropes as the SAA and its allies gave them a hiding worth remembering.

    Erdogan’s family does have a drone manufacturing company, the are probably pumping out a 100 a day. Intel that risks no human life.
    Iran are the drone masters, even if the SAA just had B grade, risking no revelations of up to date tech., they can save Syria countless lives.

      BAYKAR or worthless drones :)

        Intel that risks no human life, hardly worthless.
        It is foolish to underestimate the enemy and its assets.

    Roman would be pleased.
