Air Force Tests Remote Controlled F-16s

Air Force Tests Remote Controlled F-16s

USAF have recently turned to the use of F-16 Fighting Falcons. These warplanes are similarly modified and are unmanned, meaning that they are remotely controlled by someone on the ground.

US Air Force Will Now Train With Remote Controlled F-16s.

The first batch of planes manufactured by Boeing have already been delivered to the USAF and it is expected that over time, Boeing will deliver a grand total of 126 Q-F16s that will ultimately replace the F-4 Phantom IIs that are currently in rotation.

The Q-F16s will also be a stand-in for the MiG-29 Fulcrum and Sukhoi Su-27 Flanker which are a pair of fighter jets currently favored by Russia.

Welcome to 2015 things sure are changing.

F4s have been used for years now as target drones. Going to the F16 is a natural progression. I am wondering if they are considering drone aircraft as future unmanned attack aircraft.
