We've had UAV's in commission for a very long time... UAV's did most of the air work in Iraq/Afghanistan besides some A-10 laying down heavy fire of the cannon

Still more excited for the 2037 or Interim bomber, but this works too.

I'll be psyched when UAV Air Superiority Fighters come out. A bomber is just too.. easy.

Oh I know, but this is an damn remote controlled stealth bomber. Not that it wasn't a logical progression.

Soon we'll have autonomous swarms of these, then China will hack them, then we'll collide China's satellites out of orbit... fun times.

Don't like all this unmanned crap.

it still will never perform as good as a pilot until it can think on it's own.
but when that time comes. so will judgement day.

You really only need pilots for Dog fighting...

When the same pilot, can be on a carrier, and successfully destroy the target... then might as well save his life

I would think that carrier landings will be an order of magnitude more complex than any land-based runway. Winds at sea are almost never calm, and the flight deck is a target constantly moving in three dimensions.

If there's a remote pilot sitting in a "mockpit", the telemetry from the plane's sensors will have to be instantaneous, regardless of weather conditions, airplane damage, enemy jamming/RF attack, or other factors. The ability to transfer that volume of data both securely and virtually instantaneously is the really exciting news here, I think.

It will perform better. Planes are design to handle multiple times the G's of a normal human can withstand. F16 is a good example. Believe it or not that plane's computers prevent you (pilot) from ripping your face off. Make a drone F16 and now you have figher 2nd or even better than the F22.
