US spy plane circled between Russian airbase & port facility during Syria drone attack – MoD; another CIA/ISIS failure

Moscow has noted “strange coincidences” surrounding a terrorist attack on a Russian airbase and port facility in Syria, in which guided combat drones were deployed by militants. These include a US spy plane spotted in the area.

drones were home made but software to guude them was professional, available only in countries which produce military drones, i.e. USA, Israel...

anyway, it's another demonstration of superiority of Russian weapons, particularly in anti-air defence.
Even if US carriers manage to det safely to the range of the attack then most of American jets will be shot down having not reached Russian borders...

I only ask this because what it looks like is a piece of shit balsa wood hobby plane available anywhere in the world for next to nothing in cost.

As for the "Spy plane" that is P-8 Poseidon. That is an anti-submarine warfare and maritime patrol aircraft. It carries things like sonobuoys, torpedos and magnetic anomaly detectors.

But if you want to think that those are what state of the art drones look like then go ahead and feel good about yourself lol.

Incidentally, I have seen similar drones used by a nation state before. Iran used to have field deployed drones that looked like that but they have since upgraded.

yes, these drones are intentionally made to look like garage-made garbage, to just fly they may be of even less quality, but to successfully fly in mountains of Latakia and drop bombs at the range of 100 km in GPS-programmed spots they need sophisticated US-made (? or Israel) milirary software...
after all it is nothing but another test of US-developed tactics of drone swarms.... it is exactly the US which is putting emphasis on this tactics as response to Russian superiority in anti-air weapons.....

how high is a possibility that 13 home made drones reach exactly and precisely specific spot at the distance of up to 100 km? without Poseidon guidance.. or US military autonomous guidance software..

GPS is cheap and the drone in your picture did not travel 100km. I doubt it traveled 5km. The Russian defense ministry claims that they traveled "over 50km" but I would need to see and independently verified radar track or other source to actually believe that claim based upon the photo evidence provided.

Looking at that phone, specifically at the engine, I think you are looking at a much shorter range on that drone.

I know a good bit about the P-8. In fact there are around 60 of them sitting at the master ASW base just down the road. It is not the type of aircraft the US would use for the role that is being suggested in the articles.

Russia knows who staged attacks on Syrian base & it’s not Turkey – Putin
