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

Reaper What you Sow?

I'm no military expert, so happy to defer to others on here, but whats the difference between this "development" and the existing heavily armed UAV's, such as the Reaper? Strikes me that it also flies unmanned (well, controlled remotely), could easily fly alongside a manned aircraft, and already carries armaments such as Sidewinders and Hellfire missiles. What am I missing here?
