The UK’s Taranis UAV has made its first flights, the first of which took place last August. Many of the details have been kept secret, as it is not known how many flights have been made or where they took place. There has been no publicity about the Taranis since it was first unveiled in 2010. Test pilot Bob Fraser only stated that it flew twice as fast compared to other UAVs he’s operated. The goal is to develop a stealth UAV, but there are still hurdles, including the cost to develop it into an effective warplane. (Image Credit: Wikipedia)
