Taranis uav BAE Taranis: Autonomous Stealthy Unmanned Combat Air Vehicle (UCAV)

The Daily Mail covered the rollout:

Almost invisible to ground radar, it is designed to travel at high jet speeds and cover massive distances between continents.

The plane is built to carry out intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance on enemy territory using onboard sensors.

And it has been designed to carry a cache of weapons – including bombs and missiles -, giving it a potential long-range strike capability.

It can be controlled from anywhere in the world with satellite communications.

Experts say the cutting-edge design is at the forefront of world technology and as advanced as any US development.

BAE has a helpful FAQ here and video of the rollout.
