It's a target drone for gunnery practice, which is why it is painted bright farking orange and blown the fark up.

I that it's already been pointed out that is a BQM-74 Chukar aerial target (as indicated in the article), hence the bright orange paint and the clearly marked US insignia.

The US Navy and the Philippines military regularly hold joint training exercises. The wikipedia article has a picture of one of these targets floating (and being recovered) in the exact state as the article picture.

Being that they float, they do drift along in the ocean currents. I'm not sure why this is considered newsworthy.
