Badass British stealth drone

We don't cover military UAVs here, but I'll make an exception on design grounds for this one. Just look at it!

From BoingBoing:

"British empire presents new kite to Lord Vader

Britain's Ministry of Defense announced this unmanned fighter jet today, the Tiranus. Named for the Celtic god of bad-assery, it looks markedly more sinister than America's one, itself revealed in May. There's something about that blue-gray hangar ... it reminds me of something.

    That is an anechoic test laboratory checking for radar /RF returns and splash that is reflected.
    What magical part is behind the red inlet cover?

    Not when you are Celtic... Taranis will do just fine... :)
  • According to wikipedia Taranis was In Celtic mythology the god of thunder. Somehow Thor would sound a lot cooler!

    looks more like RF or aquestic test chamber with subject under going test but makes for very cool picture.
  • I have to admit the lighting is pretty cool!
  • That photo looks like a scene from StarWars! :)
