Now, thanks to this image, we finally have some hard evidence of what at least one rendition of a 'Stealth Hawk' actually looked like and Decepticon certainly fits the bill.When we got to Nevada a few days later, where the team trained on another full-scale compound model, but this one crudely fashioned from shipping containers, we turned the corner, saw the helos we'd actually use, and I started laughing. I told the guys, "The odds just changed. There's a 90 percent chance we'll survive." They asked why. I said, "I didn't know they were sending us to war on a *censored*ing Decepticon."
If they can put Air To air missiles on Drones or the Wingman Concept that is being developed , then all pilots will be in difficultyWay back in 1992, IAF established its first ever aircombat simulator at Hindon airbase. I was flying for 20sqn IAF at that time and we came down from Kalaikunda to practice aircombat in it. The acm against pilots was normal affair but not even one of us could win against the computer as it had eyes all around and also knew what inputs we were making to controls. Plus the computer generated aircraft always turned at the most precise bank angles and directions at best rate which is not humanly possible for even the best of the fighter pilots of the world. The computer could optimise its energy levels and could easily even predict our energy levels at a point in future during the combat and make corrections accordingly.
I am not at all impressed by these results as this will happen 100 out of 100 times.
Yes, but while you can jam the electronics of a Drone, you can't jam the mind of a pilot. Imagine a system in which pilot is giving commands by mouth and the aircraft he is flying is same as a drone with AI?In five rounds, an artificially-intelligent agent showed that it could outshoot other AI’s, and a human. So what happens next with AI in air combat?www.defenseone.com

The Drones wont have to face G forces
This is what I hope will be done with the Su-30UPG and S-400 over the next 5 years or so. And of course, the MRSAM and XRSAM as well.U-2 receives ISR track data from F-35 in recent Orange Flag Evaluation
A Lockheed U-2 Dragon Lady high-altitude reconnaissance aircraft receives intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance (ISR) track data from a Lockheed Martin F-35 Lightning II Joint Strike Fighter (JSF) during a recent Pentagon Orange Flag Evaluation (OFE).
The OFE, which took place on 1-2 July and included the US Army and US Air Force (USAF), demonstrated the ability to integrate F-35 ISR track data with a surrogate of the US Army’s Integrated Air and Missile Defense (IAMD) Battle Command System (IBCS). Lockheed Martin spokesman Brett Ashworth said on 12 August that F-35 data collected from the U-2 will serve to validate that a single IBCS Airborne Sensor Adaptation Kit (A-Kit) can serve multiple pathways to get data from F-35 and ISR assets.

“This evaluation demonstrated the technology and concept is mature to support a planned demonstration with live targets and simulated [Patriot Advanced Capability-3 (PAC-3)] fly-outs,” Ashworth said.
This evaluation expanded on the capability for F-35 ISR data to track and take action on an identified threat. This has been demonstrated across multiple Pentagon services and organisations to demonstrate Joint All-Domain Operations (JADO), according to a Lockheed Martin statement. It was also the first time a U-2 participated in the OFE.
Ashworth said on 11 August that the F-35 provides IBCS with an elevated sensor that can identify, track, and provide fire control quality data to cue US Army integrated air and missile defence assets at extended ranges. Connected sensor information between aircraft can queue existing missile defence systems to engage an incoming threat.

I think the plan will be to use laser to snipe the pilots. Or at least blind them.Yes, but while you can jam the electronics of a Drone, you can't jam the mind of a pilot. Imagine a system in which pilot is giving commands by mouth and the aircraft he is flying is same as a drone with AI?
