Gameplay footage: AC-130 Gunship Simulator: Special Ops Squadron

The research group Conflict Intelligent Team (CIT) has pointed out, however, that one of the photos published by Russia's Defense Ministry is actually a screenshot from the mobile video game "AC-130 Gunship Simulator: Special Ops Squadron," Meduza reported.

Another image Moscow shared allegedly showing U.S.-ISIS cooperation was actually recorded by the Iraqi Defense Ministry in June 2016 and shows the Iraqi Airforce bombing ISIS near Fallujah, says Conflict Intelligence Team.
