Don't mean to alarm you, but Boeing has built an unmanned fighter jet called 'Loyal Wingman'

In Harm's Way ..

Reminds me of the incident in Desert Storm where a B-52 tail gun radar locked on to an F-4 Wild Weasel, which promptly responded by launching an AGM-88. It must be a testimony to how well the B52 was built that it took a hit from a 60kg+ fragmentation warhead and only lost everything rear of the vertical and horizontal stabilisers.
