 For the sake of their socialist economy, they may just roll out a drone just to keep their engineers working and current.

I think so , when we look the HIFIRE 4 it seems that Hypesonic look more Advanced than we think, something with this design but more bigger and launching by something like falcon 9 could have very game changing potential.

Ah, the 90s, none of that Google mullarky. Had to talk to folk - face-to-face or on the phone. Write proper letters even. With a pen.
Deltas were a popular subject, especially in NW England. One bloke called Tim Matthews became particularly exercised about what was going on at Warton. He used to get into heated arguments with a retired BAE chap whose name escapes me.
I also recall some footage appearing in the late 90s that was supposedly from a UAV flying over a range and it included the video feed and telemetry. Then there was the snap of a grey object flying up a valley near Bolton (I think) that was never identified.

Och, I've gone all nostalgic now. I might even have a look at a Fortean Times next time I'm in WH Smiths. Not as funny as it use to be. Or is that Viz?

Tornados with wings swept aft...

Taranis is busy destroying wind turbines

That was dated 8 1/2 years ago. I expect Taranis learned its lesson.

But it is a lovely example of the law of unintended consequences.

And what a great computer game - fly through a wind farm without hitting anything. Come to think of it, that has probably been done.

Well on that note:

Grey, wedge-shaped and it's even the right county...

If nothing else it helps with the idea something was flying around before Taranis.
