American attack drone went unnoticed to the Khmeimim air base

An American attack drone entered the airspace of Syria, near the Khmeimim air base and went unnoticed.

A few days ago, the US Air Force multi-purpose reconnaissance and unmanned aerial vehicle MQ-9 Reaper, under unknown circumstances, was able to very close to the Russian military base “Khmeimim”, conduct a thorough reconnaissance of the Russian military object, and freely leave, as evidenced by Russian images military airbases published by the US military command.

The photos that appeared earlier demonstrate not only the presence at the Khmeimim airbase of a group of 4 MiG-29 fighters that were not previously used by the Russian airborne forces in Syria, but also the position areas of air defense systems. Against the background of the information that the MQ-9 Reaper reconnaissance and drone was monitoring, the experts suggested that it was about the drone entering the Syrian airspace.

According to open sources, the effective range of the cameras of the American drone MQ-9 is up to 15 kilometers, which means that in order to take pictures of the Khmeimim airbase, an American drone would have to go at least 6 kilometers into the airspace of the ATS, and with Given that the drone was never opened fire, the drone probably went unnoticed by Russian radars.

Why "blame" ?! It is enough to spit into it through a hole in the fence)))
Another thing is that even this was not done, and now this is sad ...

Another nonsense. Starting from a photo of a fighter - where does he come from? UAV MQ-9 does not look like that at all! And to the rest. The whole text consists of the phrases "experts suggested", it would probably be logical to assume "etc. Why is this?

up to 15 kilometers, this is not the radius of the camera but its ceiling, learn the materiel.

If he was allowed to take pictures, this does not mean that he went unnoticed

Well, where are the killer photos. They hear the ringing, but they listen, it’s something in their head

Strange conclusions. That is, if someone walks along your fence and grazes what’s in your yard, you need to bring him down?
