    what difference would kowsar make in case of confrontation with saudis?? noting. the number they mentioned makes sense for a training and light attack plane.

    Rebels in Idlib reported that they lost two of their agents in a drone strike on a car. Footage just released.

    The drone footage is released by the rebels. Usually US is blamed for these attacks in Idlib but look at the footage yourself.

    It looks very close to me. It is closer to Shahed 129 than Reaper. This is Reaper:

    US has been active in drone strikes in Idlib and recently Iran announced that they have done strikes in Idlib. It is worth to have a close look.

    I edited my initial post.
    The drone in the footage lacks satellite antenna which goes against Reaper. You can see it from multiple views if you look through the whole footage. No satellite antenna.

    I posted the footage to see if you guys agree this is Shahed 129.

    AFAIK a "ninja bomb" was used in this action and its an U.S made missile -> US drone

    well , it more look like Shahed but as I said Shahed-129 has an intake over the body. but interestingly the Shahed-129 prototypes and its early variants has engine intake under the body
    [​IMG]
    honestly I didn't knew we still use those prototypes

    which USA drone that was ? it certainly look like an early variant of Shahed-129 , but I can;t name a USA drone that look like that.

    These were the first generation production models with 2 intakes,one top mounted and the other underneath the fuselage that was probably used for the radiator,the top mounted intake was also much smaller and non symmetrical with an odd stepped intake.

    The new larger oval top mounted intake on the latest shahed 129 models could possibly be for an intercooler and might be a sign that the shahed 129 is now using the rotax 215 fuel injected engine.

    Yeah,I meant the 915....:oops:

    You can see that if you mounted the intercooler vertically then it would be a perfect placement for the new top mounted oval intake on the shahed 129.

    It can only be 3 parties. US/Russia/Iran. Israel doesn’t care about terrorists. Turkey would never kill its own terrorist allies.
