    An American Armed MQ-1 Predator Drone based at the US base in Incirlik Adana crashed 20 km outside of the base in an open area.

    The drone crashed on the night of February 3rd at 1:40 due to mechanical failures. Turkish and American teams are investigating the crash.

    No one was injured :D.

    Nice :0-:

    Whats going on? Are our drones under electronic attack by the Russians or is it just that we are over using our drones. Maybe we need drone bases closer to the area of operation so that we put less miles on them. There could be some kind of mechanical problem or manufacturer defect that needs to be found.
