    They use Improvised explosive devices so we’ll use drones, it’s only fair.

  22. Tungsten Kid on March 30, 2021 at 1:09 am

    WAIT! I feel a prophecy coming on!-

    You will suffocate if someone deflates in the control room.

  24. Clyde Tupas on March 30, 2021 at 1:11 am

    Legit question here, can these drones see people under forest canopies? Say like tropical forests im south east asia.

  29. Specter GR on March 30, 2021 at 1:24 am

    how do they connect to the drones to fly them? Satelite connectivity, internet, or something else? And is there a delay between the footage and the actual command of operation?

  30. emrespace on March 30, 2021 at 1:25 am

    Poor drone pilots, they’re stuck in the right seat forever. Seriously though, as a pilot and not a vidya game rivet counter (last sim I played was probably F16 Fighting Falcon in the early 90’s – although it’s graphics compare to this crap) this is a terrible interface system. A track ball? I haven’t seen a track ball in thirty years. They never took on because they’re counter intuitive and dumb. Give the man a fucking thumb cymbal on his yoke instead. Also wtf do all these desk pilots fly holding the very bloody base of the stick? They scared that they’ll have some kind of brain fart and randomly start firing shit?

  34. Nik Gavrilov on March 30, 2021 at 1:33 am

    What to do if one of monitors turns off?

  35. m1a2 Abrams on March 30, 2021 at 1:35 am

    I wanna be a drone pilot when I’m old enough

  36. Chef on March 30, 2021 at 1:35 am

    This is what I’m going for when I enlist next year 🇺🇸

  37. SpectralBacon on March 30, 2021 at 1:37 am

    I wonder if they’re allowed to listen to Ride of the Valkyries on the job.

  38. aczjbr on March 30, 2021 at 1:38 am

    esse é o futuro. um dia não precisará de telecomando
