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?
