amazing technology

Watch the attached video. It is an ISIS convoy trying to re-supply fighters in Mosul on July 1st.

Pretty amazing technology considering a guy sitting at a console on a mountain top in Las Vegas was piloting a drone in Syria (with both missile and 20 mm Gatling gun armament).

Re: amazing technology

Al,

The (fantastic) video has been removed. But the original poster's commentary is idiotic. Drones don't have gatling guns or cannons--or propellers for that matter!

That is footage from an Air Force AC-130 gunship, which has all those fun things plus a sideways-firing 105mm howitzer! You can easily hear the four engines and the crew members chatting.....

Re: amazing technology
