OOPS …

but why ‘Oops’?

READ ON:

and be delighted. Or not … First up: your snippet (below, down there, the piccie)(which is also your link …)

Oops~?.png

So?

THE ‘NEWS’ ARTICLE ITSELF

seems delighted in the apparent goof. (And it was a wee goof, no?)

AND NOBODY

cares to mention the excellent marksmanship markspersonship. I mean, just anybody with a shotgun can bring down a drone, no?

SO THERE’S NO REASON

to feel

  • delighted at the technical brilliance of the bloody thing, or
  • to fret at the probabilities on a much larger scale*. Brrrrr.

 

I THINK

that perhaps they should ask the Russians if they have any of those ‘Shilka’ things the Egyptians knocked Israeli aircraft out of the sky left, right, and centre that time. (Much cheaper. And with modern technology incorporated them poor ol’ drones wouldn’t stand a chance—just think of the savings!)

turk-e

boom-boom

* SFX:   Cue Vera Lynn singing “We’ll Meet Again” here please; fade it out slowly … aww, heck with it, here ya goes—
