But I'm betting you're right. By the time a pilot goes through all the stuff they have to to become a pilot, they've been flying X Boxes a long time.
I read about the SU-25. Seems to me that of all the aircraft currently in inventory, the SU-25 would have the best chance of shooting a drone. Just like our A-10 Warthog would probably be our first choice. We just wouldn't miss.
Edit: Also, as far as I can tell this is the first instance in the aircrafts history were it engaged another aircraft, and wasn't shot down. So maybe we should chock that up as a win for the pilots?
Edit 2: I was wrong, an SU-25 has shot down another aircraft before. Another SU-25, his own wingman. I still think that would count as an SU-25 airiel engagement that ended with an SU-25 being shot down.
