When I read this today, the first thing I thought of was HOLY CRAP! This is pretty amazing! Watch the skies evil dudes…the frisbees are coming.
It ain’t easy, picking out evil-doers in the urban canyons of the Middle East; there are so many places to hide. Taking ‘em out can be even harder, what with all those noncombatants hanging nearby. But the Air Force thinks it might have an answer to this most vexing problem in counter-insurgency: frisbees.
Not just any frisbees, mind you. Robotic frisbees. Heavily armed robotic frisbees.
The Air Force recently tapped Triton Systems, out of Chelmsford, Mass, to develop such a “Modular Disc-Wing Urban Cruise Munition.”
“The 3-D maneuverability of the Frisbee-UAV [unammned aerial vehicle] will provide revolutionary tactical access and lethality against hostiles hiding in upper story locations and/or defiladed behind obstacles,” the company promises.
All they need now is to put blades on them, just like that boomerang the kid in Mad Max had. Real sharp blades. Then we need Ninja Monkeys on the ground. Killer Robot Frisbees and Ninja Monkeys. The utter carnage to our enemies will ensure total victory. Hoo-yah!
