Opens up a new dimension in infantry oriented combat.
Easy for him to say. That's some bulky shit there, and how much does it weigh?
Spokesmen for military contractors are salesmen like any other. If there has been testing in the field, let's hear what the soldiers say.
Claims that it weighs less than 6 lbs.
Oh, well, I'll take a dozen.
We could seriously use something like this in our anti terror efforts for our troopers when in hostile terrain like NE and Kashmir.
AeroVironment would like to sell them to you, no doubt.
Although, the whole concept makes me think of Wile. E. Coyote opening a big box from Acme Munitions Inc. and looking out of the corner of his eye for the Roadrunner...
^^ Yeah, it does, man !
Pentagon to soon deploy pint-sized but lethal Switchblade drones - latimes.com
lol such complex expensive solutions typical America
mini spike is cheaper lighter carry's more reloads ( 6 shots for 2 men crew )
does the same job (fire point destruction )
To add some information to your lol:
Rafael Unveils Mini-Spike Anti-Personnel Guided Weapon
Brilliant idea, these drones can be valuable in gathering information.
do not be offended my American friend
but American companies solve problems by throwing money at them
you lack the creativity and fiance off Russian or Israeli company's
for example this micro uav / smart grenade is far too expensive to acquire for any non us sf infantry team
the mini spike shares launcher and optics with regular spike
and is 4000$ a shot it too has tracking ability and an aboard ccd /ir camera
and it is used with great successes in Gaza by regular at platoons as part off regular infantry battalions in Israel
Rate thoda theek laga lo to 20 ka order kar doonga
If it's going to dive bomb in every mission, it's going I prove very expensive @10,000 per piece. Good for recon if a soldier is in a tight spot and needs to know where is enemy is and what's the ammo he is carrying.
Oh, I understand what you say. The motto of the US Army Corps of Engineers when they build their projects is, "God would have done it if he'd had the money."
