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

  6. Where to Eat on August 4, 2022 at 8:05 pm

    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?

    The recruiter lied, this isn’t like a video game; these are real people with families. THIS IS FUCKING AWESOME

  19. J G on August 4, 2022 at 8:19 pm

    If the US ever wants to take it to the next level, they should make a recreational game simulation for drone warfare. This could easily weed out those with talent for this kind of warfare. In games, and real life, there is a massive difference in apptitude between different people. If you look at a typical elo system used in chess, or in an mmo, the gap between the average player and the best lies an uncrossable chasm, and no matter how much effort the average person puts in they can never reach that level. If this was applied to drones, and only those incredible talents were used in actual conflicts then I can only imagine the disastrous losses for the opposition, even if they had equal tech and manpower. After all, drone pilots can’t be lost. Using any Joe shmoe is in theory wasting millions of dollars in resources.

    Why?

  48. bashpr0mpt on August 4, 2022 at 8:56 pm

    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?

  49. Dave Young on August 4, 2022 at 8:56 pm

    Hey, what does this video show?
