Did anyone see that the Iraqis have got one of the downed Birtish/US drone aircraft yesterday.

I didnt know they were using drones much.

Does anyone know much about thes drones?
Are they just used for reconisence or are they capable of offence/defence???

drone s function in three different capacities

1. recce
2.. control for other weapons ..ie satelie guided munitions
3 capable of launchng offensive munitions ... saves on manpower..the machine shot down is a purly recce machine
