A US combat unmanned aerial vehicle has crashed in the northern Afghan province of Kandahar, the Taliban’s news agency Voice of Jihad reported on October 25.

Voice of Jihad released a photo of the alleged UAV claiming that the crash site is located near the village of Horak. Taliban members allegedly secured the crash site and took the vestiges of the UAV to a “safe place”.


  • MQ-9 Reaper,

    The US dont have any selfdestruct option on them?
    A handfull ( or less depending on the explosive) of wellplaced explosive would vaporize it, and together with the remaining fuel there would be nothing left of it,

    Perhaps the Russian tested some ECM on it and it crashed?

      Yes but the way America builds stuff, they would be self destructing all the time, and taking out the guys putting air in the tyres.
