Uninhabited and Unafraid, (UCAV, UAV, and Drone Aircraft)
« on: December 28, 2011, 04:23:50 AM »
Hi folks,

Anyone who knows me knows that I like UAVs and related - therefore I thought I might start a thread dedicated to UAVs/UCAVs etc.  Either dedicated or conversions welcome.

To begin with, I thought I might post a Uninhabited Super Hornet.  Given the apparent dislike by many of the RAAF's SH acquisition, what if they go one further in the future and convert their F/A-18Fs into QF/A-18Fs?



Regards,

Greg

Continuing with the "how to irritate people theme", how about a Spitfire UAV:



Feel free to add your own ideas.

Russia might also have a use for a uninhabited CAS aircraft:

With the F-22/35 entering service, what to do with those F-15s?

And with the Rafale not selling so well, maybe an uninhabited variant would be worth a go:

And let's not forget the OCDF's QF-111G "Terminator Pigs" (as used in the Whaling Wars):

With the Hawk's days coming to a close (apparently), maybe its time to go uninhabited:

Maybe after losing the ATF contest Northrop decide to develop the YF-23 into a UCAV:
