Behold The Future Of Warfare

Reaper.jpg

This is the MQ-9 unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) known as, get this: THE REAPER. As Wikipedia puts it, the "MQ-9 is the Air Force's first purpose-designed hunter-killer UAV designed for long endurance high altitude surveillance." This is a massive upgrade from the Predator - the Reaper flies higher, longer (42 hours with external fuel) faster (250 mph versus 80 mph for the Predator) and will be able to deliver a wide array of weaponry, from Paveway guided bombs, to JDAMs and air-to-air missiles.

The AP article about the Reaper that is getting a lot of linkage says this: "the Reaper is loaded, but there's no one on board. Its pilot, as it bombs targets in Iraq, will sit at a video console 7,000 miles away in Nevada."

The future of warfare: videogame champs chugging Mountain Dew in Nevada as they blow stuff away. I don't know whether to cheer or cringe. Pilots are now the one thing actually holding military aircraft back. The full performance of fighter aircraft, for example, cannot be reached due to the human physical limitations of the pilot. Remote piloting is the inevitable answer, so keep the Mountain Dew handy.

P.S. Woah, take a look at the future of explosives, via Instapundlit. Alas, that does appear to be yet another F-14 Tomcat succumbing to an ignominious end.

Kinda hard to enjoy one of the 72 virgins with one of those missle's rammed up your ass.

It needs the old "Flying Tigers" mouth and eyes or some other nose art ... maybe some Danish pics of Mohammad, or even the big yellow "Have a Nice Day" smiley face....gotta love it....

So much hype! This is not the future of war. As long as the West persists in thinking technology can replace the will and determination to win it will face defeat at the hands of enemies who use crude off the shelf technology and weapons manufactured in garages.

I wonder how long this piece of hardware would survive in the face of a piloted WWII aircraft? Or how it would evade the fire from a 12.7 mm gun if the operator doesn't realize he's wandered into its sights?

Yes there are uses for such devices but the money would be better spent on improving body armor, mine proof vehicles, better and lighter small arms, and most of all increasing the size of the army so that light infantry trained in urban warfare can be developed and utilized.
