Taranis, The New Unmanned Combat Jet

Great Britain has unveiled its new unmanned combat jet (Unmanned Combat Air Vehicle "UCAV") , designed to deliver missiles on targets where the Britain does not have air dominance. It's called Taranis which is Celtic for the god of thunder. Here's the news story about the plane. Without a cockpit, it looks like something out of a science fiction story. Unmanned jet fighter gets hit by lightening and goes all HAL 9000 on us. Oh, that's the 2005 movie "Stealth."
