So if you shoot down 5 UAVs, does that make you an ace??

Have a story, topic or report on what's really happening in the world's militaries? Talk about it here.

Well seeing as shooting down balloons counted in WW1, I guess the answer is yes :D .

Thats amazing footage. Looks like this could be another one brewing. Glad Im getting out while I can, although I wouldve liked to see Russia and try out my Russian.

I don't know if they counted V1 'buzz bombs' in WW2 but that might be the precedent. Seems like a kill is a kill. :twisted:
