Hopefully the Brazilians will smarten up and save they're money (along with everyone else) since the US has started a program to equip a modified,
lightened X-37 with a chemical laser, kinetic GPS ground attack munitions and AAM's that can all be deployed from orbit, without needing a pilot. The
day of "Air Breathing" manned combat aircraft is pretty much over, and rightfully so. Building a plane to support the brain pan of a human pilot is
just a MASSIVE waste of money.
Also, there is an orbital equivalent of the X-47 available also. Google the code name "RAZOR EPIC"
