Organized by nationality, Military Drones offers a compact guide to the main unmanned aerial vehicles being flown in combat zones today.

Over the last 20 years, the role of unmanned aircraft systems in modern warfare has grown at an unprecedented rate. No longer simply used for intelligence, data collection, or reconnaissance, drones are routinely used for target acquisition and to strike enemy targets with missiles and bombs. Military Drones provides a detailed insight into the specialist military unmanned aerial vehicles that play a key role in the modern battle space. These include classics, such as the MQ-1 Predator, primarily used for intelligence gathering; the Black Hornet Nano, a micro UAV that is so small it can fit in the palm of your hand and is used by ground troops for local situational awareness; the Chinese tri-copter Scorpion, which is ideal for the stationary observation and strike role in a built-up area; and the French EADS Talarion, a twinjet long-endurance UAV designed for high-altitude surveillance.
