Nice bit of man portable UAV tech here. The Switchblade drone. The drone and it’s launcher only weighs in at six pounds. Not only can this UAV be used to spot the bad guy taking pot shots at you from the ridge line, it can be used to take him out as well. Faster than calling in an airstrike from an Apache or an A-10, or hoping you are in range of the platoon mortar team.
