What's next? The nuclear war trigged by the machines? That scares me.

Anyway, cool looking plane. Looks easy to build as an RC model.

Dereck, 15 mil is not a bad price for a multi role aircraft, especially one that has potientially lower operating costs since it is unmanned. Right now, in new combat aircraft in the west, the F-16 is the low cost leader in the 25 mil range. Used to be cheaper, but we made more of them per year back then.

"Unmanned" is a bit of a misnomer, as the UCAV is certainly manned, with people in the loop on the ground. Some industry folk use the term "uninhabited", which is closer to reality.

Have noticed that regardless of whatever they are called, long words from a language completely unlike plain English will be used

An interesting thing is demonstrated by the F22 - who now has the capability to develop, build and successfully operate anything that can come remotely near to a US designed, built and manned fighter?

Candidates anyone? Perhaps Iraq has a high agility, multirole Mach 4 fighter stashed with its "weapons of mass distraction"?

What an "uninhabited" aircraft suggests in modern day terms is a fighter with a 20 person crew. With luck, they might not have a Human Resources Director on it ...

Actually, I made a model remarkably similar but it didn't drop bombs. In about 1982 or so I designed a model and built from composite lost foam and sheeted wings technology a sailplane I called the raven. It had low radar signature characteristics (I am sure) as a consequence of the fuselage design which was flattended and broadened by 6 inches to fair directly into the wings, and with a v tail looked remarkably similar to the F-117 Stealth Fighter which was unveiled 4 or 5 years later. I'll go dig out the pictures of it flying and on the ground at the Eagles Nest in Palmdale and post them if anyone cares to see.

Try the rafale. Awesome. Not a F-22, but relatively close for alot cheaper.

X-45


Hi guys,

I got yelled at by someone for posting the X-45 article in the jets section, seems they didn't like the "Star War's" aspect of UCAV. (no one flying)

Has anyone heard of the Sabre Warrior UCAV? This looks like it would be really simple to build and fly.

The X-45 in the article picture looks like a B or C model, the X-45 A had a totally different intake and exhaust sect. (See Below) The original X-45 is in the USAF Museum in Dayton OH.
