I recommend reading "Hunter Killer: Inside America's Unmanned Air War" by Lt. Col. T.Mark McCurley and "Predator: The Secret Origins of the Drone Revolution" Richard Whittle, to understand the difference between RPA (Remotely Piloted Aircraft) and SciFi depictions of fully autonomous UAVS.

In addition to a valuable insight they are a fun read. Lt. Col. McCurley's more from the pilot/operator perspective, whereas Whittle's book is more deeply into the history behind and the background...

Retired 9 March 2018 so possibly it could be a high-fidelity module down the road. I guess in less detail not really an issue any more.

A controllable drone in DCS would be just awesome.

In lue of full fidelity model, I'd like to see an autonomous platform that can have sensors controlled, but vehicle control would be via way point, task, security stance assignment.


There was a Mod for ArmA that gave the user an iPad like terminal. The terminal had a scroll-able map, TPOD camera, and a designation laser. The point of view was attached to a model that already existed in the game. A biplane by default. It worked great
