The crash happened in Anbar province in the West of the country. Presumably, we are talking about tactical Alenia C-27 Spartan, which is produced in USA and Italy. Fars writes that it is used for transportation of ammunition and the transportation of people.
It is reported about four victims of the us military, the journalist writes Babak of Tagua in his Twitter. At the same time, he noted that the U.S. air force on the balance is no longer C-27. “Probably, I mean UC-27B 427 squadron special operations,” wrote Tagua.
On 27 January it was reported that in the Afghan province of Ghazni crashed passenger plane. However, later it became known that he belonged to the Armed forces of the United States — at the crash site identified Bombardier E-11A BACN, which is used as the air communication unit of the mountainous landscape.
The responsibility for what happened took on the Taliban (banned in Russia). The U.S. side acknowledged the loss of the aircraft, however the representative of command of U.S. Colonel Sonny Leggett denied the involvement of the Taliban to collapse. According to preliminary data, the cause of the accident was the failed engine.
