Lets have a look at the MQ-4C Triton UAV
It flies in a height of 20.000 foot (6 km.), with a speed of 575 km/h, and it can stay in the air for up to 30 hours. Unfortunately the optics are not
mentioned, probably because of national security
- but lets say it can atleast photograph 1 km strip.
Afghanistan is 650.000 km².
So lets do the math - how many of these UAV's are needed to get a picture of ALL of Afghanistan, in lets say a week?
Why don't the US firebomb the lot and cripple the economy for the fierce Taleban?
