Warfare and Efficiency

Testing, testing:
An unmanned British stealth drone that can fly faster than the speed of sound and go undetected by radar will soon have its first test flight in Australia.

The £125 million ($190 million) Taranis, named after the Celtic god of thunder, can attack targets across continents, automatically dodge missiles and other efforts to bring it down and independently identify targets. It can refuel in mid-air and carry weapons including laser guided bombs and missiles.
I'm kinda partial to having 19000 drones that cost ten thousand dollars, but that's just me.

Or maybe 19000000 drones that cost $10 each.

I await the headline "Sic Semper Taranis" when one of them crashes.
