Roland Piquepaille writes "According to a short report by AFP, Israel is developing a killer robot plane. This drone is designed for long-range operations — more than 50 hours and several thousand miles — while weighing 4 tons during takeoff. This unmanned combat aerial vehicle (UCAV), dubbed Eitan (Steadfast) will have a wing span of 35 meters — like a Boeing 737. And this long-endurance (HALE) drone is the largest unmanned aircraft designed by Israel. It should be tested in coming days, but details are scarce, and it might already have flied in 2006. Read more for my investigations about this huge drone."
