  • Army Searching for Unmanned Drone

    From Todays Metro:

    The Irish Army is searching for a €390k spydrone that disappeared in Africa in March. According to military sources, the unmanned air vehicle vanished follwing a technical error during a mission in chad.
    Ill scan the rest of it when I get a chance. Dont like their chances of finding it 2 months on hope they had fully comp insurance!!

    [Mod: Last thing we need is every newspaper in the country quoting "informed military sources" as to how the UAV was lost. Amusing rumour though!]

    Strategy without tactics is the slowest route to victory. Tactics without strategy is the noise before defeat.

          Darwin Awards are awarded to people who have done a service to mankind by removing themselves from the genepool. Losing a UAV isn't really in the same vein.

                If thats the actual reason and not just a joke at the operators expense then thats one hell of a stupid mistake.

                  never let the truth get in the way of a good rumour!!!
                  Fate whispers to the warrior, "There is a storm coming"

                  And the warrior whispers back "I am the storm".

                      You're joking.

                        I think the MOD's should delete the comment and reference to it, as FP said, we have journalist's about.

                          Kindly refrain from posting rumours/reasons why the UAV went walkies. Last thing we want are journalists using IMO as a source for bad press for the DF.

                            In an unknown and sparsely poulated terrain, there would be few clues as to where it went. With the lack of helicopters to search for it, there's no great surprise that it hasn't turned up yet.
