    Russia "hijacking" US drone

    I herd the other day of Russia "hijacking" one of our drones over the Ukraine area. Is this true, or just something being blown up to be something bigger then what is really is? It was compared to the U-2 spy plane being shot down during the cold war. Does anyone have any info on this?

    my question would be what level of "hijacking"??

    as it would be closer to hacking, did they get full control for a few seconds, hours?? partial control?? or was only able to access the data feed??

    to my next comment, how dose it effect you/defense capabilities?? it really doesn't... there are still manned aircraft, and drones are more a "throw away item" and with the knowledge of Russian hacking ability, counter systems will be getting developed as we speak, what you should ask what was the drones mission?? to "watch" some civil issues or was it armed and sent to kill another us citizen??

    I havn't heard about this. Ukraine is Russias back yard. If you look at all the runnins with the Russians its been in their sphere.. off the coast in the pacific when the flanker came within 100 feet of an EWACS, in the black sea when they flew 14 flyovers of a US ship. The drone was in an area where this is an ongoing civil war and successionist government due to a coup - The US fact the US is doing drone flyovers of Ukraine says something.

    None the less Post a link to this info kindly havn't heard anything about it.

    However even Iraqi insurgents were able to tap US data feeds. Russia is a space power, they have access to all satalite feeds over their spy satalites or within their field of view.

    However what is going on is a little more than sabre rattling, US is suppling weapons and other arms to the Ukraine, as well as potential US mercenaries - often a cover for state department operations.

    However I'd really like to see evidence of Russian actions against bonefide US equipment.

    An American television show that takes place in "real time". One hour of the show takes place over the course of a "real" hour in the story.
    24: Live Another Day on FOX

    This season reveals a plot wherein terrorists hijack US drones to be used against targets in Great Britain.
