And it begins. What do you all think about this? Shots across the bow? A warning maybe?

Haha, ya. It can't be hard to shot one of those down. That why I was thinking it could be a warning. But if we are in there airspace you would think they would just shoot it down.

Two Iranian Su-25 fighter jets fired on an unarmed U.S. Air Force Predator drone in the Persian Gulf last week, CNN has learned.


Interesting how we did not hear about it, until after election.


I seriously think that this could have sway some opinions. Well, maybe not to many.


The drone was in international airspace east of Kuwait, U.S. officials said, adding it was engaged in routine maritime surveillance.

Although the drone was not hit, the Pentagon is concerned.


Drone was not hit. Do warning shots constitute a declaration of war?

I cant remember my sea pirate procedures.

After said drone flies over sensitive military installations for a full 30 minutes before being spotted and intercepted.

Yeah, it's still a fail bro

It depends on what they shot at it with that determines whether this was a fail or not. Gun shots aren't anything like in the movies. They are extremely hard to pull off, and there's a chance of having target fixation and flying into the target you are supposed to be shooting at. The gun has an extremely limited range, and a narrow window to hit with. Unless you have an advanced HUD that does your lead computing, for you, you're going to miss 8 times out of 10.

They shot at it with this

en.wikipedia.org...

The only SU-25 the Iranians operate are the ones that fled to Iran in Gulf War 1 and were promptly stolen by Iran. Given that they were ground attack aircraft to start with and have been kept flying as an orphan fleet for 20 years who knows what state they are in. They may not have a working Hud at all these days.

everyone has the right to be flying there. flying in international airspace is not aggresive.
