I imagine predator-style cloak invisibility an optional extra.

Why even bother. Iron Man is fantasy. Its not possible to design anything even close to its capabilities in such a small package.

Build a Gundam instead. Destroy entire armies. Problem solved. No more need for soldiers because they wouldnt survive for 5 seconds in battle.

Call it a first step in that direction.

In truth I too am surprised they went with this.
For the last decade or longer--- DOD has been all about micro UAV's.

The idea of having a drone the size of a bee sound's kind of silly at first, until you realize they want to be able to land that drone on the back of a hostiles neck where a micro sized explosive would blow his head off...

No, there not there yet, but that's their goal... rather than having one guy in a Gundam... they would have thousand, tens of thousands of these smart exploding bee's.

I can only assume this change is due to the bee drones taking longer to developed than they hoped?
Either that or they hired Stan Lee to consult for the Pentagon?
