    Bruh we will look back on history like “that’s crazy that they actually got into those things and fought each other, how dangerous”

  2. R H on July 22, 2021 at 8:53 pm

    Why not put the drone software and sensors in boneyard fighters for cheap fighter drones? Imagine drone A10s which could provide close air support in airspace too dangerous for manned aircraft or a fleet of drone F16s which could take out enemy SAM sites with only old hardware at risk.

    Yawn,unmotivated NARRATOR?

  4. Harildmaygen on July 22, 2021 at 8:56 pm

    I want these to become a normal AFTER I retire from the air force ;-;

  5. By's on July 22, 2021 at 8:58 pm

    So now they’re using Belkan tech bullshit huh?

  6. policedab1112 on July 22, 2021 at 8:59 pm

    cause the australian loyal wingman and the kratos valkrie is flying, and are both ai controlled, and from america and australia, can we moch dog fight them, see which one is currently better

    Three letters EMP. They will have their uses and revolutionize air combat, but will not replace humans.

  9. Jonathan Reasor on July 22, 2021 at 9:01 pm

    the flying missile rail almost reminds me of the funnel system from gundam

  10. JoeGator23 on July 22, 2021 at 9:02 pm

    We already have higher tech, you just do not see it on YT.
    Ever wonder why G’ments are now releasing ufo footage recently?
    The drones in this video would stand zero chance against them.

    Like Black Ops 2

  13. Barack Eli on July 22, 2021 at 9:07 pm

    It will take at least to 2050 for UAV to be maneuverable and agile like 80’s fight jet.

  14. Facundo Rutherford on July 22, 2021 at 9:10 pm

    Good work

  15. Zach Matthews on July 22, 2021 at 9:12 pm

    I just seen on Australian news that they purchased a lot of unmanned fighter jets forget what they’re called but they were developed by blowing and they plan on replacing their own tanks with unmanned AI controlled tanks all because they don’t have the population for a large military

  16. Kerry Maize on July 22, 2021 at 9:12 pm

    Dear -visual_information_dissemination_unit- Youtuber,
    These unmanned weapon systems are promising. -central_processing_unit- I would be interested in subscribing to your newsletter and/or mail list.

  19. Aaron Pingol on July 22, 2021 at 9:16 pm

    now i am 100% positive that military will hire hackers and gamers
    only gamers could unlished full potential of fps unmanned military hardwares while the hackers well you know what they do

  20. Kat on July 22, 2021 at 9:17 pm

    I could see an autonomous drone having the vague objective of "destroy the enemy" and coming to the conclusion that it has a better chance of fulfilling that objective when it doesn’t have to follow the orders of an inferior human pilot :V

  21. Nev8606 on July 22, 2021 at 9:18 pm

    In Australia it is called loyal wingman

  22. Fooku Studios on July 22, 2021 at 9:19 pm

    Our utter dependence on technology will be our undoing.

  23. ravener on July 22, 2021 at 9:19 pm

    the plan is for these to cost just a cuple of million dollars each" yeah thats a big doubt from me champ. these are going to cost a significant fraction of the airframe it protects

  24. Nathan Lyon Productions on July 22, 2021 at 9:19 pm

    These remind me of the tie droid automated fighter

  25. Adam Garrison on July 22, 2021 at 9:19 pm

    We could have and should have had these 15 years ago.

  26. John Glenn on July 22, 2021 at 9:20 pm

    They should switch to unmanned since 1 its cheaper than a f 35 and to train the pilot. 2 it can have more room for weapons and fuel since their is no need for a cockpit or pilot.3 it will allow them to go faster and preform more strenuous maneuvers since the g force won’t mess up the pilot since their isn’t one.

  27. Victor Romário Alvez Zaak Saraiva on July 22, 2021 at 9:20 pm

    it has to have the ability to make its own decisions otherwise the risk of losing connection to the controller or of enemy seizing control is too big
    also, the decision making aspect of fighter jets makes the latency of coms of an unmaned fighter give a great edge to enemy manned fighters

  28. dettol dettol on July 22, 2021 at 9:21 pm

    Let’s just Hope that the A.I doesn’t backfires us.

  29. Ben Dover on July 22, 2021 at 9:24 pm

    Better up the level of security by a factor of 10 to avoid a Skynet scenario.

  30. Tyree on July 22, 2021 at 9:24 pm

    OP we need to nerf some shit

  31. AussieDogfighter on July 22, 2021 at 9:24 pm

    ATS: Australia’s first domestically produced combat aircraft in 50 years or so. its being build by Boeing Australia

  32. Living Corpse on July 22, 2021 at 9:25 pm

    I think a hybrid of quantum computer and standard computers could achieve unmanned fighter jets. Quantum computers are not the be all end all machines we thought they were but they are better at doing very specific tasks normal computers aren’t achieving in seconds what would take a normal one thousands of years (that’s not an exaggeration). So you make a hybrid one where the normal CPU handles most things and the qauntium one handles the stuff too advance for it. Really at that point the biggest holdback is cost.

  33. The Droplett on July 22, 2021 at 9:26 pm

    since the trend is AI fighting, lets make virtual battle space fighting, and who wants to fight, can do it in the video games. no casualties this way.

  34. Joshua Sterling on July 22, 2021 at 9:27 pm

    Fully linked in a mesh config and carrying extra ordinance would be great, having several core manned fighters in a squadron as the hub for operations.

  35. Nakul Dalakoti on July 22, 2021 at 9:27 pm

    The end is inevitable Maverick

  36. Trubripes on July 22, 2021 at 9:31 pm

    Some of these factors, like G force and reaction time, could be an advantage of the AI in the long term.
    Indeed they will be very useful when combined with a stealth fighter, because search radar would reveal only the drone,
    Which can even be used to intentionally mislead the enemy.

  37. Tommy Tang on July 22, 2021 at 9:31 pm

    Drones will become remote weapon firing platforms where by the time you spot them, all their weapons would have been deployed and hitting their targets within the next few seconds.

  38. mongol33t on July 22, 2021 at 9:31 pm

    how to fake a war, say lts all drones and show a video of the target getting destroyed.. CGl battles and fake news – war…. people lts time to realize why this is happening.

  39. Michael Foye on July 22, 2021 at 9:33 pm

    The coming age of electronically hijacked remote control fighter jets. There I fixed it.

  40. Potatos In Nato on July 22, 2021 at 9:36 pm

    5th and 4++ generation:
    Stealth, high speed, supermanuverability, and highly advanced computers and electronics
    6th generation:
    Optionally manned aircraft, unmanned loyal wingman with early AI
    7th generation:
    Completely unmanned hypersonic aircraft with mature AI with little to no humans involved.
    8th generation: ?????????????

  41. Pixy on July 22, 2021 at 9:37 pm

    Thus the US nuked it’s own soil seven times

  42. Seyfo03 on July 22, 2021 at 9:37 pm

    Turkey is working on the unmanned jet, Selcuk Bayraktar the father of Drones said that he will finish the unmanned jet in 2023. You can look up his video’s

  43. take my gun get some copper on July 22, 2021 at 9:40 pm

    Human vs ai we know who wins 99.9999999% of the time

  44. Leopard Spots on July 22, 2021 at 9:42 pm

    I’d just build a million of these then launch them all against my foes. Fly my babies fly!

  45. Garrett Ord on July 22, 2021 at 9:43 pm

    The support role for unmanned fighters seems like a very short stop-gap to primary unmanned fighters. Historically the pilot has served as an advanced on-board computer since AI and rapid transmission of sensory info for remote control wasn’t possible, but at the same time pilots have always been the biggest limiting factor to the performance of fighter craft. To remove the need for a pilot would be to instantly and drastically improve the performance of a fighter plane. The pilot puts a hard limit on acceleration/maneuvering due to low human g-force tolerance, a hard information processing limit due pilot information overload, and a coordination limit since pilots are all individuals thinking independently from one-another. The need for a pilot also puts design constraints on the aircraft its self: safety features, open space for seating, a window that interferes with aerodynamics/armor/stealth, and all the weight/space/Points of Failure associated with control interfaces.

    I expect the armed support role for drone fighters last less than a decade before giving way to fully unmanned squads as the unmanned fighters rapidly make manned fighters obsolete. "Pilots" will likely still be involved in a supervisory role, but not on-bard the combat aircraft.

  46. Bodyboarding Chronicle's on July 22, 2021 at 9:44 pm

    Not, We did unnamed fighter jet’s in O.I.F 1
    We can do Mechanized unnamed too.
    I was in Kuwait Camp Fox when SAM shot unnamed coalition fight jet down.
    We can use lazer to take down drones.
    I seen this first hand.

    One Team

  47. Arsyad Idris on July 22, 2021 at 9:44 pm

    I think pricewise,,, it would still be about the same as manned fighter jets… u only took out the organic equation of building the jet. Everything else – airframe, propulsion, sensor equipement, specialised building materials – is all the same.

    U want an unmanned jet to perform as good (or better) as the a manned jet, its gonna have to be cut from the same cloth.

    I was thinking of the advantages of removing the organic component in a fighter jet, specifically the menouveribility… specifically the g-loading.

    Fighter jets are limited in menouverbility coz the organic pilot inside can only take so much g-force before theyre incapacitated.. sustained 5-8G, peak of 10-15G, if im not mistaken. As extreme as that sound (which it undoubtly is), the materials used to build that plane can definitely handle more… or if it cant, the engineers can definitely build it to handle more.

    Imagine a manned jet that can “only” peak at 15G, entered a dogfight with a cutting-edge drone fighter jet that can handle sustained 20G and peak at 30G… that manned jet will be outcornered, outmenouvered and outflanked verry quickly.

  48. qwertyios on July 22, 2021 at 9:47 pm

    Maybe so Sir, but not today

  49. Emit Industries on July 22, 2021 at 9:49 pm

    Cough…Cyberdyne…cough cough!
    AI drones will get uppity, then bossy, then "Who needs you!" That’s an exclamation point, not a question mark.
    What did Arnold say? "Hasta la vista, human!" Then it’s …"KABLAMO"!*!*!
    How do say "Don’t Shoot!" in binary?

  50. pilotpig on July 22, 2021 at 9:50 pm

    or just use quantum entanglement to transmit the signal instead of retarded AIs
