The Defence Secretary has said the ‘nature of war-fighting’ means that you cannot be 100% sure of no civilian casualties or collateral damage from a drone strike. There has also been just one known operation that led to the deaths of civilians in March 2011 when an attack on two pick-up trucks destroyed a large quantity of insurgent explosives and caused the death of two insurgents, but also killed four Afghan civilians. The Ministry of Defence allowed media into the base in Lincolnshire to try and dispel myths about the “drones”. British troops fly various remote-controlled aircraft in Afghanistan, used to gather intelligence to pass onto soldiers on the ground. Pilots at RAF Waddington fly the drones thousands of miles away in other countries. Major Charlie Harmer said if unmanned aircraft can gather information by putting less people at risk, then they were vital. The MoD said that in over 54,000 hours of operations the UK’s Reaper, the only armed system used by British Armed Forces, had fired just 459 weapons – less than one weapon in every 120 hours of flying. Report by Mark Morris.

    Oh no us irish republicans soldiers will have to keep an eye on the sky now as well as the ground.

    Supporting troops on the ground and surveillance is fine, flying over poor tribal areas and bringing constant fear to the inhabitants is not fine. It is great Obama managed to change the course a little and actually managed to capture a terrorist leader instead of executing him recently.

    The protestors know enough to think that they are right, but not enough to know that they are wrong.

    Edwards Air Force Base is known for it’s drone test flight and other experimental test flight.

    All that tec for a little mono screen camera.
    You would think that they would have at least a descent sized screen.
    Or put a fish eye lens on the drone and project it in a cockpit sim.
    This set up looks primitive and uncomfortable with Dan Dare Deco.
