Pentagon to soon deploy pint-sized but lethal Switchblade drones
The Switchblade drone is designed to fit into a soldier's rucksack. It
weighs less than 6 pounds and can take out a sniper on a rooftop,
without blasting the building to bits. The drone also enables soldiers
in the field to identify and destroy targets much more quickly by
eliminating the need to call in a strike from large drones that may be
hundreds of miles away.
