US Testing its Super Advanced $1 Billion Drone on US Aircraft Carriers


“Robotization” has become the main trend in the development of technology, and the military is no exception here.


Combat UAVs in the 21st century have not only changed the effectiveness of actions on the battlefield, but have also turned the traditional military paradigm upside down!.


UNMANNED COMBAT

The new era of drones is here to leave a mark and the X-47B is going to make sure that it happens. This unmanned aircraft carries 4,500 lbs of ordnance and can easily be stored in a carrier due to its foldable wings. In addition, its range of 2,400 miles can be extended thanks to its ability to refuel mid-air using a tanker.  The X-47B is actually the first drone to successfully do this maneuver.


Another unmanned aircraft resembling a Bell 407 can also be seen operating on carriers. The MQ-8C is almost the same size as a manned helicopter, can reach 160 mph, and deliver 2,900 lbs of ordnance or cargo. Just like its earlier versions, the Fire Scout has sensors for situational awareness which enhances its over-the-horizon targeting capabilities.

One of these game-changers is the X-47B UAV, which we’ll be discussing in today’s video:
