Representatives of the US Department of Defense have not yet commented on the destruction by the Taliban of their aircraft, however, it is noteworthy that at the time the missile hit the American aircraft, the latter was at a height significantly exceeding the range of destruction of air targets by portable anti-aircraft missile systems (MANPADS), which does not exclude the possibility that full-fledged short-range air defense systems could appear on the armament of the militants

It should be clarified that the U.S. Air Force was armed with only one Bombardier E-11A repeater aircraft.
