From behind closed doors emerges a UAV helicopter attack ship; no doubt the product of an intense development program. The Fire Scout UAV is capable of autonomous take-off, landing, and flight; but of course it can be controlled remotely as well. Likewise, I have no doubt that there has also been some engineering man hours put into enabling it for preprogrammed strike missions Warplanes of the Luftwaffe. The #2011 prototype first took off into the sky on March 1, 2014. Different types of "stealth" nozzle were tested on one of the engines onboard #2011 in April 2014.
