June 2007
Armada International;Jun/Jul2007 Supplement, Vol. 31, p28
The article discusses developments in the manufacturing of vertical take off and landing (VTOL) unmanned vehicles. Originally, four classes of VTOL vehicles were planned for service by the U.S. Army's Future Combat System, but Classes II and III were deferred in January 2007. The author elaborates on the deferred classes as well as on Classes I and IV systems.
