In what appears to be a baited trap, an Iraq flag sits alone in the desert, blowing in the wind.
An ISIS fighter approaches, exits his vehicle, and begins checking the flag for booby traps before attempting to remove it.
All of a sudden, his car is blown to bits by a probable drone strike. Iraq bought CH-4Bs attack drones from China in 2014. The CH-4 is an attempted copy the General Atomics MQ-1 Predator, designed by China Aerospace Long March International, but at a fraction of the cost.
Then, the insurgent lies on the ground and awaits the second strike, which is a direct hit on him. He is no more.
I hate comparing actual combat footage to video games, but all I could think of the entire time he was at the flag, was a Battlefield conquest capture point timer ticking down the longer he sat at the location. Defenders win.
