As infantry Marines fight through the streets of Fallujah they have an ally in the sky. They may not be able to see or even hear them most times, but
their help is invaluable.
Marine Unmanned Aerial Squadron 2, here all the way from Marine Corps Air Station Cherry Point, N.C., has planes airborne 24 hours a day in support of
Operation Vigilant Resolve and helps commanders on the ground gather a more complete picture of the field of battle.
The Pioneer, an unmanned aerial vehicle piloted by members of VMU-2, can assist with everything from forward aerial reconnaissance, to artillery fire
adjustment and even search and rescue efforts.
This plane is awesome. I think UAV's are the best thing to ever happen to aviation.
