In the gritty world of military tech, where the stakes are as high as the skies, the US Army, alongside special ops commandos, pulled off something straight out of a fever dream.

They’ve got a new bird in the sky, the Air-Launched, Tube-Integrated Unmanned System (ALTIUS) 700, a beast of an unmanned gadget that’s changing the game.

This ain’t your old man’s RC plane; it’s the dawn of a new era in aerial warfare, and I watched its maiden voyage.

Picture this: a Black Hawk chopper, that old warhorse, is cruising the skies, only this time, it’s babysitting the Andruil system’s latest brainchild.
