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

Re: Loyal?

Not at all. Current wingmeatmen (I ain't PC) would get their own wingbotman sidekicks. Instead of a pair of fighters going in, now you have 2 pair or 2 triplets going in. It would be like a wingmeatman promotion.

I wonder, why the name wingMAN, when wingBOT would have been more accurate? I'd call mine Starscream, if I were a fighter pilot assigned one of these. I could have been a brilliant fighter pilot, were I not too tall and my hearing not too tinnitus-y.
