US got new X-47B Drone

This unmanned, bat winged stealth drone attacker made its solo demonstration flight in California. The new drone named X-47B is little bit smaller than the B-2 stealth bomber, took off from Edwards Air Force Base, successfully attained 5,000 feet at a preprogrammed route for 29 minutes in the air.

Its experimental design and concept is totally changed from the robotic planes that are currently being used. It can be controlled by a computer from an aircraft carrier and moreover its faster than other unmanned jets, such as the Predators and Reapers being used in Afghanistan. The X-47B has the ability to fly at 40,000 feet at 500 miles per hour speed and the laser guided bombs makes it more dangerous. But this prototype is still under development and will be complete in late this year. [NY Daily News]
