    The Patriot missile was built to defend a site from aircraft. It goes and
    chases them.

    If one has ones own aircraft in the area then hold the patiots, as your
    aircraft are chasiong the enemy ones and they have weapons to down the
    siad enemy aircraft.

    Friendlies have transponders to ID themselves as friendlies.

    The plane which got shot down had a faulty transponder and shouldn't have
    been in the air.
