It probably does not matter who did it as much as demonstrating a real vulnerability. The future of air warfare will all be about drones and realistically, our aerospace research of manned fighters could even be a sham to cover up a crash program on drone warfare. I understood this a long time ago, but we are now seeing it applied.
No need any longer to talk of theoretical possibilities. All the pilots of tomorrow will spend their time in an office 9 to 5 and go home to sleep in their own beds. With AI support it will become possible for one trained pilot to ride herd on a dozen airliners. It will even make huge airships practical as well as the onboard crew can be eliminated or reduced to one technician.
The day of the hot fighter jock is going.
