Stinger missile away. With a lot of loud noise and excitement, the Marines of 2d Low Altitude Air Defense Battalion show off their capabilities at this quarters FireEx held at Onslow Beach, North Carolina. The Avenger air defense weapon system is mounted on a High-Mobility Multipurpose Wheeled Vehicle (HMMWV) Chassis. The gunner’s seat is sandwiched between two Stinger missile pods, each holding four missiles, and an M3-P .50 caliber machine gun sits on a turret below the right pod. (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

“A senior Russian general has said Syrian rebels now have anti-aircraft weapons, including US-made Stingers.”  From the BBC News: http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-middle-east-20055271

One wonders if Russia would view this as a hostile act?
