Default Royal Navy To Get First Large Autonomous Submarine

I think it's great that GB's RN is staying up with other countries to defend their country even in times of economic hardships


Royal Navy To Get First Large Autonomous Submarine




Quote:
The Royal Navy have awarded a contract for what may be the world’s largest underwater drones. Armed submarine drones are just around the corner and the U.K.’s Royal Navy does not intend to be left behind. The ‘Manta’ XLUUV (extra-large uncrewed underwater vehicle) will be 100 ft long and have the capacity to be armed. This means that Britain is joining the U.S. in leading world development of full-sized underwater combat drones.

Whoops! Now I am having second thoughts

What if this new underwater unmanned drone can be hacked and used against you?
