The Tailfun UCAV is an inntelligent weapon system developed by rheinmetall defense electronics. The UCAV has a range of 200 KM and can remain airborne for up to four hour's over the battlefield target area. The vehicle can autonomously carry out target search, classification, idenification, and engagment. Man in the loop capability allows the mission commander to authorise target engagment. The system can be deployed against armored, unarmored, stationary and mobile ground targets such as tanks, artillary systems, mobile or fixed radars and command posts. Future developments beign considered for the Tailfun include applications for SEAD and as a high power directed energy weapon platform. Ship launched applications are also being considered. Co-operative attack missions, where the Tailfiun attacks targets designated by either manned or unmanned aerial vehicles, are also being considered.

Pretty cool aircraft it could be programmed like the joint advanced weapon system to attack certain targets kinda like a missile just not designed to be blown up. All they would have to do is program and arm it with the right missiles and mode and it could be configured for different missions.
