A Russian-made Orlan-10 reconnaissance drone was downed by FSA militants in the town of Da’el, located nearly 14 km to the north of Daraa city.

The hi-tech drone is believed to be operated by the Syrian Army units to pinpoint militants’ positions.

In the same context, pro-rebel activists reported that Army units stationed in the Deserted Battalion shelled the towns of Ibtta and and Da’el with heavy artillery.

I just had an idea, might be dumb but it might work: why not just buy 1000+ cheap, useless drones and send them to enemy territory and make them easy targets? those anti-drone missiles are expensive, if the rebel idiots keep shooting them down in the hundreds KSA and Qatar will keep wasting money and resoruces

They didn’t used anti-drone missiles at all : The ZU-23-2 guns they mount on technicals are nothing else than AA guns and, if the operator is well trained, are very efficient against low flying aircrafts, small drones or choppers…

This is not Orlan-10 UAV. It’s much smaller then pictured above. It must be some Iranian drone…
