A drone, a small helicopter-like flyable model bought from the local toy store or major military weapon system? The term is commonly used to describe both. This edition is focussed on the unmanned aerial vehicles, UAVs, now widely used by armed forces around the world, none more so that the United States.
It details many of the major drone types and the missions flown by these technologically advanced unmanned, remotely piloted air vehicles. And not just controlled from land bases, but aircraft carriers too. Illustrated with world-class photography, ‘Drones: Unmanned but On-target’, is a fascinating read about the drones of today and how these types point to how air warfare will be conducted in the future.
