This is the Pentagon we're talking about. Of course the US military cannot give China the huge propaganda victory of admitting their drones are better! So of course they'll never use DJI drones.
Somehow I don't think it came down to support for "Google Play Protect"!
Google Play isn't available in China, and its not available on Huawei phones worldwide anyway. Their one-size-fits-all solution is sideloading. Honestly I wish more people would do that, Mozilla in particular, you can't be pro-privacy and require users use an invasive Google tracking app.
