  • Skunk Works

    This is something i saw today i thought all you military buffs would think is cool :


    Note :A new hybrid airship weapons system, just larger than the length of a football field, will take to the skies in just 18 months to provide an unblinking, persistent eye for more than three weeks at a time to aid U.S. Army troops in Afghanistan, according to Northrop Grumman officials.

    The company has announced it has been awarded a $517 million ( Pounds 350.6 million) agreement to develop up to three Long Endurance Multi-Intelligence Vehicle (LEMV) systems for the U.S. Army. Northrop Grumman has designed a system with plug-and-play capability to readily integrate into the Army's existing common ground station command centers and ground troops in forward operating bases-the main objective to provide U.S. warfighters with persistent ISR capability to increase awareness of the ever changing battlefield.


    Maybe would could see if they could add this to the next BF2 PR Mod ? lol

      Re: Skunk Works

      The thing that I've always loved about the skunkworks is how little we actually know about what goes on. Hell, the SR-71 was designed in the 50s at the skunkworks and we didnt even see it until the late 70s/early 80s. So for all of these neat things we're seeing coming out of their super secret facilities, its interesting to wonder whether or not these things have actually been in continual development for 10 or so years.

                Good ol' Skunk Works, creating awesome planes that feel like they are out of a sci-fi movie.
                I wonder how long it will be until we'll have flying aircraft carriers again. :p
