    The Hero-R is also quite satanic.
    It has an endurance of 10 minutes, and just enough explosive to blow up a trench. It's meant to be released from "pods" on a tank to deal with infantry ambushes and the like at short ranges.

    In the future you'll have just giant tanks covered in sensors rolling over everything and releasing swarms of these things to deal with anything that moves in an urban context.

          NTA but if it's only being used against unsupported infantry then it may not be worth the price of the weapon. If it's against any kind of vehicle 20k is probably worth it, but only if it gets the job done in one hit. If you're going after a guy hiding in a bush you want to keep the cost sub-1k. You don't need to put expensive thermal cameras on your kill vehicle if you have a high flying and distant spotter with an IR laser to designate targets.

          It's easy to win a war when you have unlimited cash. Good tactics make due with less.

                Baen was the only exception, and even then, they only publish so much each year. Some folks are making a go of it as indie publishers, but it's a lot more difficult to get started in the business than to get a following using a publisher and then going indie later.

                indie is definitely a route and if you're good and get a following it can even pay the bills, but having a publisher always helps of course

                I would actually recommend talking to some of the Baen authors; many of them are very open and willing to help a new writer get started. It's a very different culture compared to the mainstream publishing houses; a lot of those guys are in it because they love writing and can't *not* write, as much as they are for the money. There are also Baen-adjacent folks like Sarah Hoyt who are big into helping new authors get started in today's mess of an industry.

          It depends, but In large serious wars it tends to happen.
          The Americans were starving tens of thousands of Japanese every month by 1945, in large part because they had mined the waters of all of their ports and had submarines sinking everything in the waters outside Japan.

          In a serious war with China, the US would enforce what would likely be a largely bloodless blockade against China bound commercial shipping.
          China would likely try to impose a much bloodier counter blockade against Taiwanese and possibly Japanese and South Korean bound imports.

          If it's an enemy ship it's a target but would more likely be sunk if it refused to heave to for inspection. Shipping is tracked globally so there's that.

          Geneva and Hague CONVENTIONS are not about some weird gotcha, they're about gentleman's agreements (i.e. the definition of a convention), like "I'm not going to hit your ambulances if you don't hit mine".
          In this case it's "we're going to clearly mark our military ships and not target civilian ones and will extend you the same courtesy." The assumption is that state actors will have a common-sense interest in trying to limit the destructiveness of war.
          You can totally violate the conventions, don't expect anyone to give you any sympathy.

      Once you can launch them from a container you could drop them en masse from a plane or even frick it a train or whatever.

      As dumb as it is, if it works it's not stupid.

      I can see a large "carrier" with around 500-1000 of these frickers in "cartridges" that can be reloaded by smaller trucks in minutes, supported by robust AA and ECW.

      The drones can function in many roles, from area denial where aircraft can be used elsewhere, to mine-clearing, to search and destroy for HVTs. And the crawlers are not so-expensive, especially compared to conventional aircraft (Crawlers-15-30 million, F-16 $63 million).

      You could even have different modules, with each cartridge being it's own self-contained drone type. You could have longer range ones that fly faster, slower ones, or even mother-ships for aerial drone swarms can be launched from them.

      Mount a few machine guns and Javelins, up-armor the thing, and give it a dedicated crew of Combat UAV operators. Hell, it could be backed up by UGVs with appropriate weapons systems for defense.

      Again, this could replace or at least heavily augment the ability of Ukraine to break through Russian lines.

    I like the concept here but I think it's putting the cart before the horse. Why carry 10 gorillion drones if they have to be individually piloted to their targets so you're never firing more than one at a time in practical conditions? Something like this should be able to get in range, deploy a bunch of autonomous drones at once, and scoot out all in one go.

      Of course autonomy is the next step so no reason not to prove the launcher. Evolution moves quickly and containerized VLS cells make perfect sense. A PLS version could travel with any unit for swarm on demand.

    The future is plane launched drones and the U.S knows this. FPVs will remain another piece of kit, they won't have designated vehicles for it unless they're small and maneuverable.

      Most people have no idea how big of a deal this is.

      Lets take France for example;
      >no strategic bombers
      >only multirole jets on bombing duty
      >meaning that they can only deploy ground attack bombs from Rafales which can carry 10 tones
      but with palletised deployment
      >they now have a fleet of 50 A400Ms, and each can deploy ~20 AASMs for ground attack or ~10 MdCNs for naval attack
      >France now has a quasi-strategic bomber fleet

    No it doesn't, over-hyped germ.
    Ukraine expends more than 1000000 drones a year. If Germany wished to field only military drones and only deliver them like this, they would need to refill a number of these trucks 8000 times a year.

        This is probably the most important thing that needs to be done for a ship to be able to effectively use this type of shit. I wonder if they will make one to sell with the system itself. Otherwise - it ain't gonna do well on the market imo.

    All eggs in one basket, an unarmored undefended one at that. May work against ziggers, but for serious foes it should rather be on a boxer or something like that. Putting them closer to the front makes for better effective range too.

    Also imagine smaller containers that could operate autonomously. Drop them, camo them, leave them inactive until the foe arrives. Almost impossible to detect. Great for a planned defense.

          The idea that you leave autonomous drones in canisters that are passive and in standby until something trips them off. Imagine a minefield, but while regular minefields mostly become speed bumps or something to be avoided after they’ve been found out, now you have a swarm of drones hunting you down.

          Think of something like the German PARM mine, only instead of firing an EFP warhead, it takes off and uses on-board sensors to autonomously find and destroy a target.

          Also, think of SADARM and its cousins (like SFW, BONUS, and SMArt), only with quadcopters released from a bomb, an artillery or cruise missile, or a shell; using their "carrier" vessel to get them behind enemy lines, whereupon they form a short-lived "aerial minefield", killing any targets their sensors can identify within the flight range of their on-board batteries. For even more fun, wait until somebody figures out how to incorporate the new military-grade methanol fuel cells into the drones in order to extend their flight duration, or programs them to know how to find a spot to land and hide until they detect a target passing by (or receive a radio command from a satellite or another drone).

          There are lots of truly nasty things that can be done with drones, once a level of semi-autonomous capability is developed... and that's mostly just a matter of putting a few billion dollars into writing efficient code, because a good Snapdragon has plenty of CPU horsepower to do the job.

          Imagine the old conspiracy video about the air-deployed drones that went around and assassinated anyone who looked up the wrong subject or said the wrong things, and take out the Big Brother facial recognition part (because that's the least likely part of that video). Imagine dozens or hundreds of anti-vehicle drones that kill anything with wheels or treads within a large area in just a few minutes. Or smaller anti-personnel ones that go after thermal signatures that look like people. Carl Carwindows might be the sole survivor.

            Hour 0: swarms of EFP drones fly search patterns down roads taking out all vehicles and calling back to spot for HIMARS
            Hour 1: drones switch to SEAD mode to take out radars and surviving point defenses
            Hour 2: leftover drones land to conserve battery, lifting back off to kill any survivors' trying to organize and fight back
            Hour 3: humans in APS-equipped IFVs plus air cover from drones roll in to mop up, search houses and accept surrender

            Pretty much.
            The main advantage of a mine-like thing is that it cannot easily be detected or shut down. A truck like this one or another vehicle is a large target. A cruise missile is expensive and can with some efficiency be defeated. It becomes a game of air defense and counter battery, except with drones rather than shells. But a small canister that is already where the enemy comes by is impossible to shut down before it launches.

              Btw. this works with rocket artillery as well. Drop some containers in a random logistic center near the front, activate as necessary. Laugh if the foe starts randomly shooting at civilian containers rather than valuable targets.

The upper sections house the drive assembly with the electric motor, while the middle assembly directly below the lower propeller houses the electronics, power supply, and a fibre optic bobbin which can be used as a means of interfacing with the munition in the absence of radio. The lower assembly houses the warhead and the sensors, with the latter protruding out from the main body of the munition near the base.

    The concept is good, but one of the good things about FPVs is that they can be produced cheaply, swiftly, ad hoc, and using a combination of different parts. I can see this whole shebang being very expensive and I fear that the western armies are going to end up buying something like this instead of doing local production.
