    Default Iranian drone enters Israeli airspace, Israel bombs Syria, Syria downs Israeli f-16

    So much for the spirit of competition.

    This will be a test of trump diplomacy. Has potential to blow up bigly.

    Kind of impressed Syria can shoot down an f16. Are they using Russian weapons or NATO?

    It certainly does not bode well going by these early reports.

    F-16 is a pretty old plane, I guess I'm more shocked that Israel is still using 70's and 80's era weaponry.

    Wikipedia has syrian anti air weapons as all soviet or Chinese, LOL. If they're shooting soviet missiles I guess it was a fair fight

    I don't think planes and tanks are their top dogs. Now their cyber warfare though...

    If I recall correctly, didn't Israel use a virus to basically destroy an Iranian reactor?

    Syria has a lot of modern anti-air weaponry due to both the Russians giving it to them and capturing stuff we've given their opponents. Filling the air up with flak is also a great way to shoot down anything.

    The F-16 is still a great plane, hell, we still use it. And Israel has one of the best tanks on the planet.
