As previously noted on Fighter Sweep, ISIS is making claims of having weaponized drones and attacking Iraqi forces with them.

In this video ISIS states that it shows their drone dropping some type of bomb on an Iraqi Abrams tank killing the tank commander who was standing in the open turret.

Apparently ISIS is using commercially available hobby drones and converting them to carry different types of weapons potentially making them lethal.

What do you think? Is this a legitimate threat to US forces in the region?
