What kill streaks does the SAM Turret shoot down? Can it be destroyed by air strikes, chopper gunners, or other kill streaks?

It can shoot down any flying vehicle except the Stealth Bomber.

It can be destroyed by aerial vehicles, or any gun, even a single knife attack will destroy it.

Note: Uncertain about the Recon Drone.

    No, Turrets are not marked as a target. I noted the part that it can be destroyed by aerial vehicles only for the sake of completeness. SAM missiles are quite fast, even faster than a Valkyrie (Black Ops). A Chopper would not stand any chance against 4 guided rockets,of which at most 2 is enough to take down a heli.

  • It will fire on the recon drone, although you can dodge it if you're fast or it has a particularly poor angle on the drone.

SAM Turrets will attempt to take down any Aerial Killstreak including the Recon Drone in its sights except the stealth bomber, precision airstrike and predator missiles.
