Top 10 Combat Drones Of The Future And Today

This video is not a ranking video. We are just mentioning the top 10 combat-capable drones on the list, and most of them are still under development.
An unmanned combat aerial vehicle (UCAV), also known as a combat drone or battlefield UAV, is an unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) that is used for intelligence, surveillance, target acquisition, and reconnaissance and carries aircraft ordnance such as missiles, ATGMs, and/or bombs in hardpoints for drone strikes. These drones are usually under real-time human control, with varying levels of autonomy. Unlike unmanned reconnaissance aerial vehicles, UCAVs are used for both drone strikes and battlefield intelligence.
Aircraft of this type have no onboard human pilot. As the operator runs the vehicle from a remote terminal, equipment necessary for a human pilot is not needed, resulting in a lower weight and a smaller size than a manned aircraft. Many countries have operational domestic UCAVs and many more have imported armed drones or have development programs underway.

One of the earliest explorations of the concept of the combat drone was by Lee De Forest, an early inventor of radio devices, and U. A. Sanabria, a TV engineer. They presented their idea in an article in a 1940 publication of Popular Mechanics. The modern military drone as known today was the brainchild of John Stuart Foster Jr., a nuclear physicist and former head of the Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory (then called the Lawrence Radiation Laboratory).[8] In 1971, Foster was a model aeroplane hobbyist and had the idea this hobby could be applied to building weapons.[8] He drew up plans and by 1973 DARPA (Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency) built two prototypes called “Prairie” and “Calera”. They were powered by a modified lawn-mower engine and could stay aloft for two hours while carrying a 28-pound (13 kg) load.

  11. Merke Tarif on May 15, 2021 at 2:47 am

    If you really mean battle proved like in Syria, Libya, Irak and Karabag than the the smaller TB2 and Anka S would be on the top.

  12. Shivanshu Tripathi on May 15, 2021 at 2:48 am

  28. Vimal Kumar on May 15, 2021 at 3:13 am

    Why spend lots of money on research, it is very cheap to steal other countries technology 😀😀😀 China( so called reverse engineering). Next war is war of drone.

  31. Sam Nigam on May 15, 2021 at 3:16 am

    Our Indian Armed forces use Predator MQ9 Reaper bcoz we haven’t developed a armed UAV drones as yet. The most junk UAV Drone in the world is China’s Winglong March G2 😂😆. I advise nations not to buy em.

  32. Saúl Rodríguez on May 15, 2021 at 3:18 am

    Los chinos son campeones en copiar…

  33. Vimal Antony on May 15, 2021 at 3:19 am

    u forgot add the cost per piece and your logic behind putting tai Akshungur 9th even though it has 49hrs endurance and is the cheapest drone in your list. U need to do more research.

  34. jjjh ghj on May 15, 2021 at 3:19 am

    у сша он даже не летает

  35. ABZTRONIC TUTORIAL on May 15, 2021 at 3:20 am

    Top 1 byrakhtar not to mention but no need mentioning because it’s on viral in social media.

    Useless high altitude, high speed, expensive, high weight load capacity of the drone if these drone could destroyed by the anti aircraft defence.

    But turkeys drone specially the byrakhtar the only drone ANTI AIR DEFENCE SYSTEM & ANTI RADAR.

    So byrakhtar drone small but terrible battle proven is the winner.

  47. Oğuzhan Yılmaz on May 15, 2021 at 3:33 am

    Liste o kadar boktan ve uyduruk ki Othotnik daha hala test uçuşları yapıyor, neye göre kime göre en iyi 3. drone amk? Listedeki çoğu drone kendini kanıtlamamış ve çatışmaya girmemiş dronelar. Sadece Reaper,, Aksungur ve Wing Loong aktif çatışmalara girdi,diğerleri sadece gözetlemeler yaptılar veya hala test aşamasındalar.
