    I was in the 4756 Drone Sqd at Tyndal AFB in 1964-66 and this launch site reminds me of the one at Tyndall. We used the Ryan Firebee II in those days. Very exciting time for me working in the drone sqd then.

    Este drone a jato um caça com 2 pilotos um no comando do caça e outro no drone guiando quando chegar perto da radiação do radar o caça da volta e o segundo piloto guia ate a destruição ele abaixa o drone a um nivel do solo e vai controlando os obstaculos fugindo do radar ate o final e destruir o radar ou defesas aereas Como os misseis serao hipersonico entao os drones a jato tem que propulsao hipersonico tambem
