Sounds like a spook jet. Not good.
US military plane crashes in Afghanistan with 5 onboard, official says.
Crap. Looked manipulated.
Danggit and RIP.
Too much gravity hitting aircraft lately.
Maybe they did, who knows for sure.
I thought it did too. I wish we had been right.
Not really. Battlefield Airborne Communications Node. BACN. It allowed troops better communications in mountainous terrain.
Did they shoot it down with 500 camel jockeys firing ak47's at it?

We shipped them billions in aid, weapons, training, and even flew their wounded to coalesce in non combat areas and train with our and other SF units during the soviet war in Afghanistan.
Other countries are doing the exact same thing now. Russia, China, Iraq, NK all ship weapons to Afghanistan to vet them against our systems, and test/improve what they've got, just like we did. Yeah, there are a lot of dumb cave dwellers with nothing more than a PKM or AK and a belt of ammo. But there's also highly trained dudes rolling around with NVG's and encrypted coms and top of the line weapon systems built to engage our stuff.

They beat the British.
They beat the Russians.
They will beat us. HH
That's only partially accurate.
They beat the Russians because we spearheaded an effort to flood them with support.
They will likely outlast us, because we had two chances to cut the head off the snake, and we choose not to pursue them. Now we fight limited engagements on their terms.
On their own, they've been beaten by just about everyone.

What do they have that can shoot down one of our jets?
