Watch U.S. Marines Learn To Shoot Down Aircraft By Annihilating Drones

October 07, 2016

Watch U.S. Marines learn to shoot down aircraft by conducting live-fire drills with the FIM-92 Stinger against UAV drones. The Marines arrive at a peaceful beach with the intention of making it anything but relaxing.

The FIM-92 Stinger is a launch surface to air missile US short-range used to achieve the helicopters or aircraft at low altitude combat. It functions on a “fire and forget” system. It uses infrared missile trackers that were developed in 1981. This particular launcher is responsible for destroying 270 different vessels. It saw heavy use during the Falklands war and is just as deadly now as it was then.

Sit back and watch the high quality explosions for yourself.
