Technology is constantly changing, and for us to think that an aircraft like this is being conceived, and the designers etc haven't thought about
things like being visible to the eye, top speed, "enemy" threats etc, is naive.
Only recently I heard or read or seen something about stealth/camouflage technology that's almost near prefection the same principle as the
"Vanquish" car from James Bond. You know, surface covered in tiny cameras and screens and the screens project what the cameras on the opposite side,
showing what the viewer would see if the object wasn't there. Anyways with the heights these things could reach I doubt anyone would see it with the
naked eye or a high spec set of binoculars and also doubt any weapons could reach it.
What if it isn't for foreign missions? Domestic surveillance is what I thought of. I know they can do it in plain view but it would be an ideal way
to have constant domestic surveillance.
Perhaps someone can tell me there is such an anti-missile defence that could be used onboard an aircraft as this? I was thinking due it's advantage
in height it would have ample time to react to any such threats?
