I’ve been tasked with creating a UAS platoon in my battalion.
The intent is to create a battalion level hunter-killer cell that integrates scouts/snipers, mortars, and UAS to locate and destroy targets.
We have RQ-11 Ravens at our disposal (basically model airplanes with thermal/IR capabilities), VHAs (a shitty drone on a string mostly used for retrans, but can also use thermal) and potentially some kind of civilian quad copter in the future.
I beseech you, anons, how can I make this concept not suck? What kind of equipment do I need to procure to make an effective drone platoon? What do I need in a perfect world where I can order anything?
