If the drone unmanned... does the guy controlling it from the ground have to blow his brains out after the drone blows up to make it a true suicide drone?

One more duct tape thread to complete the tri-fecta!!  Get to it people.

I thought that a drone like that was called a missile.

"But first, we thank you for the duct tape!"

I'm sure the people it blows up will be satisfied to know that the bomb had duct tape on it.

This. If it has TV cameras that allow a remote controller to steer it (unlike the unguided, gyroscopically stabilized V-1), it's a guided missile. It's not a suicide if only the vehicle is destroyed. Unless TFA is implying that the remote operator is blown up when the missile explodes.

It gets turned on by looking at its own wings.

I guess a baby will be steering it from the inside.
\Why shiat like this get greened?

Mmm, not to freak you out but..

It's called "600mph tape" and a good part of our naval aircraft are held together with the stuff.
 
2013-10-23 05:48:09 PM
No, no. I think it means it's the kind of bomb that suicide drones like.

Looks like something that the Germans used in WWII. They had remote control glide bombs back then, even some with a  primitive TV camera in the nose.

*sigh*

No. No, they're not. There are stipulations in place for Emergency Battle Aircraft Repair that go so far as to include using tin cans and rivets to keep aircraft in service in the most dire of situations, but "a good  part of our naval aircraft are held together with the stuff"is stupid and disingenuous at best.

600 mph tape is most commonly called duct tape. But, then again, I  passed the ASVAB, and am therefore a military super-genius, capable of knowing there is no difference between the two.

You mean like the fake thing they threw together and claimed was one of ours?

GoGoGadgetLiver: It's called "600mph tape" and a good part of our naval aircraft are held together with the stuff.


I've always heard it referred to as "speed tape" and I'm generally amused when people think it was invented for race cars.

The Fieseler Fi 103  AKA V-1 Buzz Bomb would be a cruise missiles. Cruise missiles have there own guidance system and are not guided by some one on the ground in real time by TV screen.

Yes, but nobody can do anything for me.

Iran's drone program is like Kobe Bryant in a hotel room in Colorado. It's unstoppable.

This is the military Israel is so pants-shiatting scared of? Wow.

Wait...wouldn't putting duct tape on a suicide drone make it less effective?

My dad used to patch up bullet holes in the fuselage of his helicopter with duct tape.

Duct tape is traditionally grey, not packing-tape brown.

*shakes tiny fist*, my first thought as well.

These guys are funnier than the Norks. They have suicide Cigarette boats, suicide submarines and now suicide drones.  Not too sure they thought out their cunning plan.

I guess "cruise missile" isn't as panic inducing as "OMG SUICIDE DRONE BOMB".
Press, I am disappoint.
