Features the very latest advanced unmanned aerial combat vehicles and explains their critical role in global conflicts today
Includes the design and manufacture of advanced UAVs in the U.S
The idea of the armed, combat-configured unmanned aerial vehicle entered the 21st Century in the same manner as the idea of military aircraft had entered the 20th Century. This untried and untested concept was suddenly thrust into the spotlight in an unexpected global war. In 1999, few people outside the military recognized the potential of armed, unmanned flying vehicles, or Unmanned Combat Air Vehicles (UCAVs), as they were called. Today, UCAVs form a vital arm of U.S. strike forces and are controlled from halfway around the world.
Bill Yenne picks up the UCAV story where he left off in his 2010 Specialty Press book Birds of Prey: Predators, Reapers and America's Newest UAVs in Combat. Since that time, both technology and battlefield doctrine have evolved considerably and this book is a new window into that world. It provides a detailed look inside the present and future of robotic aerial warfare systems and technologies.
Yenne's first book on UCAVs covered the period of early development through to the end of the 20th Century. Drone Strike! takes you from that time through today's latest technical wonders, covering such unmanned aircraft capabilities as aerial refuelling and landing aboard aircraft carriers. Recently declassified photographs of the latest U.S. Unmanned Combat Aerial Vehicles, combine with the most up to date information to provide a unique insight into this new form of aerial warfare
