      Yep, you did. But a casual glance shows its definitely not from the crash.

      It may not be clear from the photo, but part of the seeker's outer shell has been ripped away, so what you can see fits entirely inside the seeking cap, including the coupling. I don't think there is any 30+ lbs of payload attached to this, based on the spec, the warhead itself would have sat behind this component. Busted old electronic junk, most likely, from a junkyard or scavenged in the field from wartime Iran.

      But according to the pro-Ukrainian activist who posted it, it's all Iran and Russia's fault! And that's all that matters on Twitter.

      Normally I'd say probably was Russia (it usually is), but in this case deduction won the day..

        But that is quite a compliment.

          Regardless of what model, it's not destroyed. So, that photo is FUD, at best. I think Rabbit just said that.
          Consider for a moment that there is no meme about brown-haired, brown-eyed step children.

            The fact that you take it as such does a pretty good job of proving my point. You ever watch Chernobyl? You're the old man with the cane that makes the order to cut the phone lines.

                Yeah, it's a lot more subtle than calling someone a racist or of melting the planet.

                    And more funny in mocking the target of the insult rather than funny in mocking the sender of the insult.

                      Looks like it's sitting in an old watering trough or something, LOL. Even in the twitter feed linked, someone said some Iranian dude found it in his yard, miles away from the crash site.

                      LOL at Ghost believing that shit.

                      Ghost, you have people other than Gonzo, that fucking racist, non-empathetic other than cancer patients, liar, making sound observations and providing info.

                        Right, but in this day and age of f-bomb humor and microsecond attention spans.

                        Talk about mass manipulation of the general populace to be a big herd of sheep...

                          You know, we had a Christmaukkah family argument over the most overused phrases of 2019.

                          That was mine, because who gets to pick the hill they die on, really?

                          Such a stupid thing to say, when you think about it. Like "Boomer".

                            Good call,then.

                            See, we can work together to figure this shit out. It's bs.net, right ?

                            You need to stop projecting your anger at whoever onto everybody else. Just because you got fucked over by folks with no empathy...

                            You are so easy to manipulate that way. It's for lulz here, but...

                              You are so silly. The Ex-Wife Unit and I have been using that phrase for at least 10 years, usually in regard to child-rearing practices.

                              We were ahead of our time, apparently !

                                Let me make my point clear: if you were brutally murdered during a home invasion or some shit I would testify at the killer's sentencing that he did a public service.
