well the regular normal drones i guess arent enough for us now we want to make them nuclear powered so they never have to land or refuel.......skynet
is almost here
NEW SCIENTIST -- The US Air Force is examining the feasibility of a nuclear-powered version of an unmanned aircraft. The USAF hopes that such a
vehicle will be able to "loiter" in the air for months without refuelling, striking at will when a target comes into its sights.
But the idea is bound to raise serious concerns about the wisdom of flying radioactive material in a combat aircraft. If shot down, for instance,
would an anti-aircraft gunner in effect be detonating a dirty bomb? It raises political questions, too.
To have Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs) almost constantly flying over a region would amount to a new form of military intimidation, especially if they
were armed, says Ian Bellamy, an arms control expert at Lancaster University in Britain.
so for this i have to say kinda frankly scares me what uf they crash or go hawyire of us soil that has happend allready and there only soloution is
to shoot them down......so what happens when we have to shoot down a flying nuclear reactor that thinks for its self im normaly all for what ever toys
we use to keep us safe but this seems like a very bad idea.....although the navy problay does like the ability to kamakazi a nuclear powered drone
into that half sized carrier china built.....
and this one wants to make them smart and able to
talk to each other and learn from text...but those are satelites and arent built yet
