I wonder who made that drone........:huh:

Probably Russia or China - from technology stolen from us? (or gathered from captured or shot down US drones)

I'll bet it was this type of gun used.

I seen live-fire demos of them. They put out a wall of flying steel/explosives.

My cousin was a tech on one of those guns when he served.  Quite a deadly piece of equipment.

Who escalated tensions in the middle east?  Sure as hell wasn't us.  I'd say Iran is guilty of an act of war.

If an Iranian drone came too close to the ship, of which it seems here, it should be and was shot down.

I'm of the opinion that we should have found the drone's base and done some more damage: a LOT more damage.

Supposedly used radio jamming, not a gun.

Yes, that's the report!  Fascinating!  Too bad they couldn't turn it around and have it crash on its launch base!  From the videos shown on TV, the U.S.S Boxer appears to be a helicopter assault ship (Marine CV-22's and Sea Stallion helos on board).
