Tom Clancy Drool-Fest

The Army gets the coolest toys:

After a year of successful testing, the U.S. Army has ordered over a hundred Switchblade UAVs for troop use. The Switchblade is a one kilogram (2.2 pound) expendable (used only once) UAV that can be equipped with explosives. The Switchblade is launched from its shipping and storage tube, at which point wings flip out, a battery powered propeller starts spinning and a vidcam begins broadcasting images to the controller.

A remote-controlled flying bomb? I would have killed for one of these when I was a kid.
