You realize that every unmanned war vehicle we make is just another tool for Skynet...right? :wink:

Though I see the need for the majority of the weapons in development for the country that the Senate disagrees with, such as the F-22, Comanche, and Osprey VTOL, I don't really see the use of these helicopters, when Predators can do(or be modified to do) the same thing at an increased range.

Perhaps someone can enlighten me?

For naval vessels their recovery is much simpler as it can land vertically,rather then have the UAV land in the water and be fished out, or try to land in a capture net.

Obviously some scientists looking for funding :P I wouldnt be suprised at all, if they dont get the funding they want,that Global Warming somehow gets worked into the "fear" :lol:
