Amazing how rapidly this has come to being a reality, I remember reading about MIT's development of this system for DARPA, and being pretty eye opened as to how effective it is against any human pilot that has the misfortune of going up against one. The mere fact that the system actually watches for any attitude changes of an enemy's aircraft allowing it to predict what they're going to do, not to mention that it can fly well beyond the limitations of any human pilot. In the simulator the system killed every single combat experienced pilot that went head to head with it.
Incredible stuff, you have to admire the sheer technical prowese of it all, a shame that they spend so much money on how best to kill things and not on making the world a better place.. It will be interesting to see how it performs in a real combat situation. That might be a lot sooner than we think.
They have really come a long way, in a very short time. WOW !
