It's only fitting that we took one of theirs down after they brazenly did what they did. "They need to buck up and fly right or they could be in for a world of hurt." Sorry was raised by a fly boy and that is the language I grew up with.

Iran's Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps's (IRGC) shot down a United States RQ-4A Global Hawk BAMS-D surveillance drone with a surface-to-air missile over the Strait of Hormuz.

“A fixed-wing unmanned aerial system approached Boxer and closed within a threatening range,” chief Pentagon spokesman Jonathan Hoffman said in a written statement. “The ship took defensive action against the UAS to ensure the safety of the ship and its crew.”

Neither Trump nor the Pentagon spelled out how the Boxer destroyed the drone. CNN reported that the ship used electronic jamming to bring it down rather than hitting it with a missile.

$100MM of which 90% of that is electronic surveillance and countermeasures gear. In my head, an Iranian drone is a Cox RC plane with a Kodak camera strapped to the belly as a technological comparison.

seriously hope we really didn't use a missile on that. Hopefully they just fried it with microwaves.
