MoD unveils unmanned fighter jet ‘of the future’ – Yahoo! News
LONDON AFP – An unmanned jet capable of striking long-range targets has been dubbed the “combat aircraft of the future” by the Ministry of Defence.
The Taranis — named after the Celtic god of thunder — was unveiled at a ceremony at BAE Systems in Warton, Lancashire, on Monday.
The £142.5 million prototype is the size of a light aircraft and has been equipped with stealth technology to make it virtually undetectable.
In a press release, the MoD described the Taranis as “a prototype unmanned combat aircraft of the future.”
