Is it really a good thing that it's been shot down in its first mission.
I'm sure these have been used for years now.. and it wasn't shot down. Apparently the reports are that when it landed inside the compound, because of the high walls when it attempted to take back off, there was not enough area for the helicopter to create enough down force to get enough lift to get off the ground.
Probably had a malfunction on landing because it is new/prototype, and still has issues.
It's not a prototype, it's based on the Blackhawk, they have been used for years.
