A US ally used a $3 million Patriot missile to shoot down a $200 drone purchased from Amazon.com, an American general has revealed, questioning the economic consequences of the operation.

Gen. David Perkins told the Association of the United States Army’s Global Force Symposium in Huntsville, Alabama that the strike was made by a “very close ally.”

“A very close ally of ours was dealing with an adversary that was using the small quadcopter UASes and they shot it down with a Patriot missile,” he said, stopping short of actually naming the country in question.


“Now, that worked, they got it… that quadcopter that cost $200 on Amazon.com did not stand a chance against a Patriot.”

While Perkins admitted the ally “won” when it came to the “kinetic exchange ratio,” he questioned whether the move was economically wise.

“I am not sure that it is a good economic exchange ratio, in fact, if I am the enemy, I am thinking ‘I am just going to go on eBay and buy as many of these $300 quadcopters that I can and expend all these Patriot missiles,’” he said.

    I'm 90% sure this was Israel, and 90% sure the drone was Hezbollah's. The economics of the situation probably doesn't factor in because said user gets infinite amounts of money from the US to buy more weapons.

    A slingshot would have been cheaper.

    As you know, I'm very pro Israel...However, in this case, I feel you're probably correct and it pisses me of if Israel did do that

    If I'm not mistaken, one of Israel's anti-missile system's is actually named "David's Sling"
