    Well, one downside of this is that a lot of birds like hawks, eagles and vultures will be killed in the belief that they are meso-air-vehicles used for surveillance/targeting, since to be “unobtrusive” they will have to be designed to resemble the biota in a given area. Not that this probably matters to the designers/purchasers of these weapons. Die, infidel buzzard!

    The use of civilian law enforcement story for the video is very creepy.

    It’s about time to accept that a shotgun may be more relevant to future air superiority than a F-22 or Typhoon.
