More problems for the "Guys In Front"... part of "Trolling for Dusty Week" today's installment is... oh-oh! Unmanned inflight refueling is a reality.

Lex? Dusty? Anyone? Anyone?

From the comments of Chap's post:

I submit that now there is absolutely NO reason to have a human pilot in an F-18. : -)

- They already take a cat shot with no hands
- They already land Mode 1 no hands
- They can now tank no hands (major airmanship challenge for a hornet/hornette pilot)
- JDAM falls off automatically
- All our enemies bury their fighters in sand dunes when we attack- no need for A-A.
