I just think it's a fantastic thing, I like the idea of unmanned mules and flying things moving stuff about. Endless possibilities.

Imagine your marines are in a firefight and the enemy brings up armour, one of these could be delivering a Javelin system to the troops from an fob in 10 minutes, with some water, food and more ammo, plus a mortar for you to clear out a machine gun nest. Or just equip it with a missile module and have it Hellfire the armour.

I'm sure propulsion is the key, or power to drive fans.

Give it ten years and you'll have unmanned aircraft making threat determinations and alerting routes under its own authority.

Sorry guys, been away with work.

Yeah Zaph, isn't that a comforting thought! /sc

Forensick you're right of course, but one day there won't even be marines, drones don't need water or food.

Nothing wrong with thinking of COD brace, especially as I made a transformers reference!
