Details are fairly scant at this point but the head of Ukraine’s air force has confirmed it on telegram.

Total value of that is > $120M USD. Nom nom nom.

    The key part here are the three pilots. Russia has more planes then trained pilots, so destroying flying aircraft is a much better thing, then hitting them on the ground. Still 120million or so is going to hurt.

      I have been told the Patriot biases the cockpit as well. Much more effective damage.
