VFA-87 ôGolden Warriorsö onboard the USS George H. W. Bush were part of the continuous combat air patrols being provided over Tabqah Air Base which was the demarcation line for the USAF and the Russian/Syrian Air Forces. On June 18, 2017 SDF attacked ISIS in JaĈDen located south of Tabqah but were forced back. Now pro-Syrian Government forces attacked JaĈDen supported by 5 Syrian Su-22s. One Su-22 dropped bombs very close to SDF ground troops so in response F/A-18E 168912 piloted by LCDR M. Tremel fired 2 missiles and downed the Su-22.
