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


It is no terminator

"Controlled via ground station, other aircraft, and has some level of autonomy that can scale for the mission"

Any war machine needing more information like "Destroy this target, [GPS coordinates], shoot at anything that moves in this perimeter [more GPS coordinates] and return to [GPS coordinates] when required by levels of gas and ammo " is not an autonomous robot.

The plane is a sophisticated radar destroying and or jamming system, that is supposed to take the first punch when operating in contested airspace.
