Future wars are all about Drones: Elon Musk
On 3rd January 2020, an American hunter-killer drone called the plowman fired three missiles at the convoy of Iran’s General Qasem Soleiman which was 6,200 miles away. The then US President Donald Trump watched in real-time where the soldiers narrated that they have one minute, thirty seconds, and eight seconds to live and then they are finished. People might fear that these unmannered aerial vehicles are taking people to a Terminator-style dystopia.
One of the Israeli pioneers even stated that the drones work best for D-cubed which are dull, dangerous, and dirty missions. Drones are even the signature weapon of the war on terror in Afghanistan as well as Iraq, especially in the Obama administration. Today, nearly a hundred countries have earned drones, Iran, Turkey, and China have even some serious arsenals and also there are some serious arsenals that are emerging drone alliances around the world.
Drone warfare has demeaned the mightiest powers, from the US to Russia and Saudi Arabia. In September 2019, a drone swam-evaded air defenses to attack Saudi Arabia’s oil fields. Drones have even fought each other in Syria as Turkey attacked the Russia-backed forces. By seeing the impact of such recent drone activities Elon Musk in his latest tweet even stated that ‘Future wars are all about the drones. Human crews of planes or tanks have no chance.’
