US ARMY new UAV

Here's a new VTOL drone that's in testing.


This is pretty cool. It can carry up to 4 Hellfire missiles, and can cruise at 400 knots. That's pretty slick. Others are slower and carry fewer missiles, or, like the Reaper, can carry 14 Hellfires. But this is the only VTOL. This would provide greater flexibility in getting them closer to the battlefield, and allow a unit to deploy one in an independent support role. As in, "Oh sh*t, let's get that thing airborne NOW".

Here's some video from YouTube.
