Default U.S. Navy Plans Armed UCAS-D Follow-on

"The U.S. Navy is planning to demonstrate an
armed, sensor-equipped, carrier-based unmanned
combat aircraft system (UCAS) by 2018, as a
follow-on to carrier-suitability and autonomous
aerial-refueling demonstrations planned for
completion in 2013."

As an old time Shadowrun player, the idea of a "UCAS" weapons system
warms my heart on many levels!

I suspect this chill the spine of every EMCON-conscious Admiral...
(aside that UCAV's logic can be duped in ignoring (and not reporting)
shadowing missile-toting a/c during the return leg...)

UAV can be really great in giving back cruising ships (that is, CGs and
DDG) the long-range reconnaissance capability of yore, given by
floatplanes until late 1940s, but UCAV from CVN is a big no-no, esp. if
guidance of these is from the said CVN.

Best regards from Italy,
Dott. Piergiorgio.
