Today the Australian Royal Airforce and Boeing announced they completed the first design on their project to create an unmanned combat drone. Australia’s federal government say they will invest $40 Million Australian dollars to the new project. They say that the new drone is going to be “capable of operating in concert with Air Force’s fifth generation air combat capabilit”. This is Boeing’s first unmanned aircraft designed and engineered in Australia and is their largest investment out of the United States. Today (Wednesday 27th of February) they revealed the model of the combat drone to the public at the Australian International airshow.

This is, I’m my opinion really exciting news from Boeing and the Australian Airforce, I cannot wait to watch the development of this combat drone over the next few years.

Thanks mate, it is a while away though, and the project is based in Brisbane, so I might be able to send some to you 😅

I hope they don’t do these to commercial airliners, cause then I’ll be unemployed for my whole life 😐
