On lunch .......
This is causing massive ripples through NATO and especially European forces and governments
I never say this lightly
In fact I've never said this
This is gonna get interesting
in a bad way fast.
A politician is currently getting chewed out for admitting that turkey is supporting Isis on a popular radio station
And certain military departments are on lockdown/ very high security, briefings ongoing in the usual most secure buildings (WOK's and the like), officers in a panic and Troops looking nervous whilst the panic knee jerk reactions unfold
Something that just crossed my mind.......combine this and where it's going with yesterday's SDSR.....the PVR's (pers. voluntary redundancy (quitting )) are gonna start racking up.

Not according to Turkey.
No one wants an escalation, least of all Russia.

Will Russia declare Turkey a terrorist harbouring breeding ground worthy of attack ?
Or will they leave it to beaver ?

Can manpads reach 6000 meters / 3.728 miles / 19,683 feet?
Turkey confirmed that it used 2 F-16s to shoot down the SU-24. Russia is trying to save the situation by saying the plane may have been shot down from the ground. But Turkey vehemently claiming responsibility is not helping.
Our aircraft was downed over the territory of Syria, using air-to-air missile from a Turkish F-16. It fell on the Syrian territory 4km from Turkey.
Not really if it violated turkish airspace. Its not like this is the first time Russia did this and its not relevant it was in Syrian airspace when it was hit. It still intentionally violated Turkish airspace.

So far your opinion has been quite obvious.
