Has anybody heard of the Sabre Warrior UCAV?
This video has been on YouTube since May 2008, but hasn’t received nearly the attention it deserves.
Only one reference to the Sabre Warrior has appeared in print, and that was about a decade ago. An Associated Press story on April 17, 1999, quotes Armand Chaput, then-Lockheed Martin’s director for unmanned combat air vehicles, who gave a lecture at the University of Toledo.
One, the Sabre Warrior,was portrayed taking off from an airfield at night, receivingcomputerized target instructions from soldiers hidden inside enemylines, and dropping bombs that destroy a convoy of tanks and otherarmored equipment.
Chaput also showed a videoanimation of a proposed unmanned plane that would take off from asubmarine, unfold its wings while floating to the surface, fly to atarget, drop bombs and return to the submarine, where it would beserviced by robots.”
