  1. The drones haven't been dressed in badly fitting uniforms with the aid of HE and a threshing machine, so no, not STABS.

    The drones are of a uniform size and shape, serve a uniform purpose and are a real asset all of the time they are working, so no.

    That said, they are also prone to being a little unreliable especially if the weather is looking a bit bad, so quite possibly yes.

  3. No. UAS are known for their endurance. Anyone who has witnessed a TA CFT will know that STABs are not.
     
  4. There was a rumour that senior drones hang around headquarters using buzzwords and trying to fool people that they are regulars - so maybe.

    Definitely Regulars - someone thousands of miles away does all their thinking for them and they just do as they're told.

    This one has been floating about for 20-odd years but by the time it offered to go it was too old apparently.
