I love this comment on that page:

Fantastic. This is good news. Autonomous drones keeping humans safe instead of in harms way. Next these will be weaponised which means less humans in battle.

Did he mean to say "keeping the right humans safe which I'm sure will never be me? Because I don't think he realizes what these will be used on.

We should build drone civilians for military drones to murder.

This is almost an episode from Star Trek, the Original Series.

I was going to make an 'A Taste of Armageddon' joke but I couldn't think of one.

Now make the jet a drone too and we'll have the 21st century version of the catapult that catapults catapults.

good to see tech from Starcraft becoming a reality. Never thought I would see the day Protoss Carriers became a reality.
