Not enough info to be 100% on this yet, but if true its a wake up call that going in on a first world country like Russia is not going to be the same as bombing goat herders in Pakistan.

As local Crimean and Ukrainian news sources report there were two American made drones, presumably MQ-9 Reapers, shut down recently. There is no provable report to which country those aircrafts belonged too and what were their purpose in Crimea, however a video has surfaced that is said to be recovered from one of the two hit drones showing a close surveillance task being performed by an aircraft above the unidentified military forces having the Russian made military trucks. The soldiers later notice the aircraft and use something that looks like green lasers to probably blind the aircrafts camera. You can see the video yourself inside, it is just 90 seconds:

The footage is obviously filmed from an ultralight at slow speed and altitude....
