Thread recording every known #R9X Hellfire (aka #NinjaMissile & #FlyingGinsu) strike.

The AGM-114R-9X is an inert variant of the AGM-114 "Hellfire" developed by #Lockheed that is meant to reduce risk of civilian casualties while using pop-out blades to maintain lethality.
The #R9X has received much attention since a @WSJ article by @glubold & @wstrobel last year where it was said to have been used "about a half-dozen times" against high level terrorist targets in "#Libya #Syria #Iraq #Yemen & #Somalia"

.@ResoluteSupport has been operational in #Afghanistan for almost 16 years, successfully losing 70% of the country to the #Taliban, based on a newly released report. Only 30% is under the control of @ashrafghani's govt in #Kabul, with rumors Kabul is about to fall.
They have also successfully allowed #ISIS to re-structure their base of operations from #Iraq & #Syria to northern #Afghanistan. @AANafgh released a report in 2016 proving that @KarzaiH knowingly provided safe haven to militants, who are now #ISKP.
