Invalubale to the guys on the ground, and a amazing piece of kit.

I wouldn't want to go out on the ground if these UAV's were hunting me.

Rather like the SAS who can turn up and kill everyone with a paperclip and Kung Fu black belts who just use their finger tips, I feel that UAS's are not the war winning weapon the media tells us. They are just another tool in the box for a bn cmdr.

This is where GOOD money is spent.This kit gives us that extra support without out any sort of danger.although i do think the Apache is still one of the most outstanding pieces of kit out there,but this (UAV) is in my 'Must Fly' books !:eye:.

Well yes. But try fixing your car without any spanners in your toolbox :)

Clever title OP. These things have clocked up over 20000 flying hours (Jan 2011) and if you know where to find them on the stinky dusty bases, quite an eye opener.
That apart, no wonder that phone cameras are banned, on pain of losing your badge.

Rather these things, than risking dismounted troops and more ramp ceremonies.
