the stealth drone was supposed to be invisible too, look how that turned out.

at $400 million a pop, i can see why they only sent 6.

and after the first one is lost to an "accidental crash", you'll see all of them mothballed.

I hope they have good cameras for more war gore. The footage of multmillion dollar aircraft shooting at bicycles or teenagers in bushes is so unbelievable. I kinda feel sad for pilots that have nobody to dogfight with. These guys go in after the drones. I bet a few of these ARE drones. Pilot stays at home.

I don't think the Drone was capable of flying at 1,300 MPH while carrying one of the most advanced weapon systems on Earth.

just sayin

And it is not likely they sent an "armada" of them. Probably a squadron of about twelve.

near invisible to radar... and it will be difficult to spot by eye at altitude, it has BVR missiles which are i believe fire and forget. so basically its meant to approach enemies without being noticed, fire and be out before the bogey realise what shot at them.

unless it has an invisibility cloak you can see any aircraft that is low to the ground. even the famed B-2.

just suggesting that when it wants to be seen it will have a purpose.

Yes, US$66.7 billion that could have been spent on something much more worth while like helping other people or even God forbid, their own citizens.
