US ‘mystery’ missile downs Iranian drone in Iraq

In the first week of January, the Ain al-Assad airbase situated about 100 miles west of Baghdad was the target of three separate drone attacks. One of the drones had “Revenge” scrawled on its wing; the attacks came on the anniversary of the assassination of Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) Quds Force commander Qasem Soleimani, January 3.   

The drone shootdowns were at first attributed solely to the US Army C-RAM (Counter Rocket, Artillery and Mortar autocannon) but the video shows that at least one of the drones was knocked out by a missile.

Israel’s top missile expert, Uzi Rubin, was one of the first to identify that a missile was part of the response to the drone attack, based on a video that first appeared on Twitter. About the same time it was spotted by Joseph Trevithick, writing in The Drive.
