Will unmaned arrial vehicles truimph over piloted planes.
I think they will because:

A if a plane is shot down you don't have to rescue the pilot

B UAV will do whatever you want them to do

C More room for weopons with no pilot

D Cost less

Any thoughts

Another advantage is that

-you can go somewere were a man would think its to dangerous, like were theres alot of anti air (unless its stealth)

-You can withstand tons of G-Force

With current publicly known technology i think manned is better depending on the mission, but for combat its definately preferable.

A-If an unmanned plane is shot down, true we dont have to rescue the pilot, but i know just as much effort would be put into retrieving or destroying the technology before anyone gets a chance to steal it.

B-Un-manned doesnt have the common sense, the intelligence or the initiative a human pilot would have.

C-May cost less to run but initial costs would be higher.

I dont doubt one day unmanned may take make the Air force pilot obselete but at this time i think we'll still see fly-boys for a while yet

About B: Can be remote controlled like the pilot would really be in the jet.

BUT, I guess the communication between HQ Simulator and remote jet can be interrupted.

i dont think the human pilot for all intents and
purpose's will be made redundant 4 at least
a couple of hundred years. those remote
drones seem to be pretty good 4 recon' work
and as a remote air2ground missile platform
