    Unmanned tanker is a pretty crazy idea, but definitely militarily innovative for sure. Send a bunch of them up with a carrier launch to give the aircraft a longer time in the air and never risk running out of fuel to return to the ship.

    Between this unmanned tanker and this thing here, there's going to be a serious traffic control problem.
    This is unbelievable.

    Marines Release Specifications for New Mega-Drone

    [​IMG]

    The Marine Corps is a step closer to getting a large unmanned aircraft that can launch from ships, fly a radius of up to 700 nautical miles with a full payload, escort the MV-22 Osprey and other platforms, network with other manned platforms, and provide offensive air support, including targeting and strike.

    This incredible unmanned aerial system is known as MUX, for Marine Air Ground Task Force Unmanned Aircraft System-Expeditionary.
