The BBC's Adrian Chiles finds out what it's like to pilot a Reaper by visiting RAF Waddington in Lincolnshire, home of No.13 Squadron RAF and No.39 Squadron RAF, which operate the drones:

They are like guns I suppose.

SOme truth in that. All depends on whose hands they are in.

People near the fire can let a balloon out on a string and carry a camera above the trees and reel it back in when done.

Your mom get time off from the circus in the winter?? Did I answer the ozone question or not before your dumb-ass troll post where you did what you said I was doing, attacking the poster. The saddest part is none of you ever learn.

I just wonder if there is a consensus between all of the alt's before it gets written in a post?

THE RAF will get new drone “swarm squadrons” to confuse enemy defences, it was announced yesterday.

They will fly in formation and make it impossible for enemy radar to spot which are armed — or even if one is a manned jet.

Each squadron will be controlled as an inter- connected group — and if one gadget is destroyed the rest carry on.

But it will be almost impossible for an enemy to down all.

Defence Secretary Gavin Williamson told military think-tank RUSI in London that the MoD would “develop swarm squadrons of drones capable of confusing and overwhelming air defences”.

He added: “We expect to see these ready by the end of the year.”

The new system will cost £7million.

The army is also pondering smaller drone swarms to search buildings and streets in combat zones.

If they were to develop drones that could drop food and water to starving children they would really have something worth talking about

Arm all of them with tactical nukes. No one would want to shoot them down over their own country.
