    Bunch of crap that no missions were compromised. Any half wit can see the feed and look at land marks and see that the drone looks here and here so change our routes. Morons. I find it hard to believe that a known serious issue would raise the cost to fix. The item the gov paid for would technically be "defective" but considering they knew about it im sure they signed something saying they will accept it as is. Tax dollars wasted. LOL delta...

    Its an interesting issue. Ive used the correct issued equipment that recieves the data link. The link as far as I am aware is insecure and vunrable to interferance. If they have been hacking to recieve the link from ''drones'' or UAVs then can I am also pretty sure that they can recieve the data from any aircraft carring a Pod that transmitts the signal such as SNIPER and LITENING III pods.

    Scary but am not to sure how much use it is to the enemy. They would need mapping to know grid referances or indeed understand Lat and Long. Do they have the comms or intelligence to act quickly enough on what images that they are seeing.

    At best, they are seeing their mates getting smashed for IED planting by a 500lb on the button

    Unfortunately you're right bro, if targetting pods used a similar or the same data link then they too could potentially be hacked into.

    I also agree, I don't think the insurgency/jihadists have the knowledge and know-how to properly make use of the data provided by the drones. I think in this case they're content with studying and analyzing the video feeds and making changes to their strategy to survive better - not necessarily use the info gathered for attacks against the the coalition. I'm still not happy with the fact that the feeds they are tapping into would show uncensored data as well as the audio comms that go with it. Denying these wahhabist bastards any advantage however small, would decrease coalition and civilian deaths.
