Odd.  You would think this old video might cause some measure of caution in casting easy dismissals.

That video is showing an "icing on the cake" feature that is really nice to have since you are going to be in the area anyways.  Obviously a high-endurance drone would be a better platform in the long run.  However, most drones will not have the CPU power to properly analyze the feeds on such a large scale.

Btw, the new EODAS modules coming in 2023 will give 5x the resolution of current systems.

I remember first hearing about that and couldn't help but glee at the idea of some Macross Plus level stuff finally entering the real world.  Seeing right through the floor........

That would be the BaE P.125.

It is the BlackSwift Hypersonic Cruise Vehicle as featured in Steve Pace's Skunk Works book, the program itself was canceled.

Was the rolling short landing ever attempted with the Harrier?  Not sure if it was simply too dangerous to try (obviously easier with F-35B), or if it was because "Harrier carriers" were simply too small and couldn't afford to leave such space.  The QE is pretty damn big, and well laid out for it's intended air compliment.

Britain has committed to another 17 F-35Bs, bringing the total order so far to 35.
