The Most Badass Military Drone to Date-- Sabre Warrior

I stand corrected, the Sabre Warrior > China's Dark Sword & Sour Dragon.  Go USA!

It's nice to know our defense budget of world conquest proportions is being spent on something awesome, not some fancy Geiger counter.  Why look for nuclear weapons when you could smart bomb some motherfuckers at mach 6?!  Introducing Lockheed Martin's Sabre Warrior, a next-generation fighter plane that made me shit my pants at first glance.

The Sabre Warrior drone is 46 feet long, with a 36-foot wingspan, capable of taking off with 30,000 pounds of load using a 22,000-pound trust afterburning turbofan engine.  Each payload section (there are two) can handle one 2,000 pound or two AIM-120 AMRAAM missiles or 10 smart bombs or sensors, or even fuel for extended range missions—even while this thing is air refuelable.

It's super deadly and super badass.  Man, I'm glad I'm not this guy:
