Taranis first flight footage

Recommended Posts


If I understood correctly this is UAV controlled by a ground based human. But the X-47 is a "free" capable unmaned vahicle that will fly the mission on their own.

Not up to speed on the X-47 - I've seen it land by itself on a carrier - but any weapons drops would have to have the usual UAV team of humans to authorize it first. Suspect its remote controlled with a limited autonomous type ability.

 

Wonder if it can take evasive action by itself - execute evasive pattern delta 3


It does look interesting... I think the major question though is how much is it???

 

You thinking of buying one then - says they are small fighter jet size - might not fit in the garage :)

It's a test article, costs aren't relevant. A production version would certainly be different in many ways.
