    What about a submarine what a joke

    Mihaly having a nightmare because of this

    Ngl that drone looks really cool.

    It seems like the X-32 has lost quite some weight in the past few years

    Everybody gangsta until Latin Music start’s playing in the background while this is Dogfighting

    How do you think this tech can influence our everyday air travel?

    Getting some Northrop yf-23 vibes

    Lol boatbuliders are making even bigger single resin infusion pieces for years. 😜😂

    I’d love to see an autonomous jet performing defensive tactics, such as in a dogfight. I know anything is possible, but I’m trying to think how that would work. Of course they can program it to do whatever they want, but fully autonomous maneuvers are a bit different.

    Australia needs this type of technology. With a small airforce, this drone can increase our numbers of aircraft.
    It’s price, adaptability to other uses, such as air-sea rescue, bushfire surveillance, makes it ideal for Australia.

    Feminists will be angry with the name of — Wing’MAN’…😂🤣

    My guess is that each unit in the fleet will have its own nose for a different purpose. So, one will have extra radars, one will carry extra payload etc.

    CAN PASSENGERS ARE ENJOYING THIS TECHNOLOGIES … TOUR AND TRAVELLING BE ESAY …

  15. 40rdmag on July 7, 2022 at 7:36 pm

    Drones are trash

  16. Sboom2017 on July 7, 2022 at 7:38 pm

    Swarm from bo2

  17. Eric Newton on July 7, 2022 at 7:40 pm

    As a force multiplying asset..I would like to see some of these vehicles have the ability to give exact locations of fixed enemy positions for artillery and long range rocket target acquisitions. Giving troops on the ground another advantage..

  18. François Chiarelli on July 7, 2022 at 7:40 pm

    OK but what about Taranis, nEUROn, X-45, X-47, etc… A bit of context would be appreciated since first UCAV prototypes flew 20 years ago in Europe ans the US… This video makes it look like some unique achievement, which is not the case.

  19. Tubes & Toks on July 7, 2022 at 7:40 pm

    Hmmm….So Boeing is the only Company that designed and built this thing. It was actually a collaboration involving many Australian companies, Australian Defense Department and Boeing.

  20. Jeff Lei on July 7, 2022 at 7:41 pm

    """"loyal""" wingman"?

    *is cruising along*

    Drone
    <<I’ve found my reason to fight>>

    *missile alarms*

  21. music lover on July 7, 2022 at 7:41 pm

    Indian HAL wingmen is also Ander development .love from India ❤️

  22. Pol hot on July 7, 2022 at 7:42 pm

    Stick with trigger and you’ll be fine

  23. bryant tillman on July 7, 2022 at 7:43 pm

    Skynet has its wings

  24. Tomatenbomber on July 7, 2022 at 7:44 pm

    can someone please explain to me what makes this drone special? all i hear from this video is AI and "The largest single piece resin ever produced by boeing" which is as much as a nonstatement as it is irrelevant (at least to me since nowhere was it explained why this is good, he just talks in an excited voice, which leads me to believe that it is good)

  25. Emir Latinović on July 7, 2022 at 7:45 pm

    Instead of making the enemy fighter jet aviators frustrated, they should have invented the ejection seats for civilian airlines and finally save some lives.

  26. Animalanimal on July 7, 2022 at 7:46 pm

    Anyone see the F-23 influence?

  27. Great people of HIMACHAL on July 7, 2022 at 7:47 pm

    Waiting for
    Genesis🥺🥺😔😔

  28. Paul Radford on July 7, 2022 at 7:48 pm

    Designed and built in Australia 🇦🇺👍🇺🇸

  29. Hiden Biden on July 7, 2022 at 7:50 pm

    My god, can you imagine how much the Chinese are going to pay biden for these?

  30. SpicyHam on July 7, 2022 at 7:51 pm

    easy goin there.. rather generally also going

  31. Grant Spork on July 7, 2022 at 7:51 pm

    Good to see Australian innovation building cutting edge aeronautics!

  32. Americanknow on July 7, 2022 at 7:53 pm

    It looks like Chinese drone’s copy.

  33. Porchen Hund on July 7, 2022 at 7:56 pm

    Nice looking drone.

  34. Lower then the lowest Deck on July 7, 2022 at 7:57 pm

    Feb 2021 – I’ve see this bad boy fly in tests …its cutting edge , with Australian know how given to Boeing….Better then your standard UAV

  35. on July 7, 2022 at 7:57 pm

    Not suitable for Air travel. No pilot accountable for passenger lives. Air ticket should be cheaper like $60 since there is high risk and stakes are high traveling in a drone.

  36. neurotransmitters on July 7, 2022 at 7:57 pm

    Australia just had it’s first flight today

  37. Bruno Wiebelt on July 7, 2022 at 7:57 pm

    why do they develop such innovative technic in Australia, not traditionaly under top secret in the US????

  38. Maximus Quin on July 7, 2022 at 7:58 pm

    Is this Belkan technology???

  39. Abhishek Pratap Singh on July 7, 2022 at 7:59 pm

    Two videos with 80% same script.

  40. pradman81 on July 7, 2022 at 7:59 pm

    I bet these are made to look like the drones in the opening of Terminator 2 just in order to scare us.

  41. Cornholio777 on July 7, 2022 at 8:04 pm

    AI = Skynet

  42. .m. on July 7, 2022 at 8:06 pm

    i think unequivocally, all semi-trucks, ships, passenger planes, fighter jets, and military vehicles will be autonomous. it’ll start with testing a few AI drones for small missions. seeing the success and accuracy that AI can provide, governments will start investing and implementing more into AI. it will transition to fighter jets, tanks, carriers, and the overall military network and strategic planning. as things continue to go well, more and more power is given to AI, and human decision-making is removed from the process. at that point, our job is oversee and set objectives for the AI, and it will figure out the best way to accomplish that by co-ordinating all the vehicles at its disposal. as more and more power is given to it to further maintain the country’s competitive edge, it will eventually get to a point where it can make its own decisions. at that point it will be difficult to determine what will happen – either it may work with us, or go against us.

    อีก 10 เดือนจีนก๊อปเสร็จ หึหึ

  44. David Morris on July 7, 2022 at 8:11 pm

    Imagine hundreds of them in attack mode.

  45. SSS SSS on July 7, 2022 at 8:13 pm

    Loyal wingman will destroy CCP`s PLA Carrier fleets on Pacific. Hooray Aussies~~

  46. Belka on July 7, 2022 at 8:16 pm

    So this thing can have a TLS and pulse lasers

  47. Mayur borah on July 7, 2022 at 8:17 pm

    Aero India shows it as wingman of HAL

  48. Ivan on July 7, 2022 at 8:17 pm

    How long will it take for the Chinese to steal the technology and reverse engineer it?

  49. PRACTICAL BUSHCRAFT & SURVIVAL on July 7, 2022 at 8:20 pm

    is that a screen saver in the back ground at 00:15 if so where did you get it from . and great info …

  50. Santhosh Kumar on July 7, 2022 at 8:20 pm

    why call it a "wingman", simply call it a loyal drone
