An unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) is an unpiloted aircraft. UAVs can be remote controlled or fly autonomously based on pre-programmed flight plans or more complex dynamic automation systems. UAVs are currently used in a number of m ilitary roles, including reconnaissance and attack. They are also used in a small but growing number of civil applications
such as firefighting when a human observer would be at risk, police observation of civil disturbances and crime scenes, and reconnaissance support in natural disasters. UAVs are often preferred for missions that are too "dull, dirty, or dangerous" for manned aircraft.







UAVs typically fall into one of six functional categories (although multi-role airframe platforms are becoming more prevalent):

  • Target and decoy - providing ground and aerial gunnery a target that simulates an enemy aircraft or missile
  • Reconnaissance - providing battlefield intelligence
  • Combat - providing attack capability for high-risk missions (see Unmanned combat air vehicle)
  • Logistics - UAVs specifically designed for cargo and logistics operation
  • Research and development - used to further develop UAV technologies to be integrated into field deployed UAV aircraft
  • Civil and Commercial UAVs - UAVs specifically designed for civil and commercial applications

They can also be categorised in terms of range/altitude and the following has been advanced as relevant at such industry events as ParcAberporth Unmanned Systems forum:

  • Handheld 2,000 ft (600 m) altitude, about 2 km range
  • Close 5,000 ft (1,500 m) altitude, up to 10 km range
  • NATO type 10,000 ft (3,000 m) altitude, up to 50 km range
  • Tactical 18,000 ft (5,500 m) altitude, about 160 km range
  • MALE (medium altitude, long endurance) up to 30,000 ft (9,000 m) and range over 200 km
  • HALE (high altitude, long endurance) over 30,000 ft and indefinite range
  • HYPERSONIC high-speed, supersonic (Mach 1-5) or hypersonic (Mach 5+) 50,000 ft (15,200 m) or suborbital altitude, range over 200km
  • ORBITAL low earth orbit (Mach 25+)
  • CIS Lunar Earth-Moon transfer

Additional category can be applied in pattern of function: fixed routes vs. dynamically variable routes:

The U.S. military employs a tier system for categorizing its UAVs.

The best Found airplanes ever! F16.
  • Fast
  • Nice Look
  • Powerful
  • Comuterized
  • and much more






F16 is also called Fighting Falcon. It is one of my best Collection ever. It is very high speed special designed fighter plan with lots of functionalities and best handing plan used by best armies of the world.

It is firstly manufactured in 2 Feb 1974 and firstly made by USA, but it is used even today. It is one of fastest and best fighter plane of the world.
Its performance is a record.

Performance

  • Maximum Speed:
    • At sea level: Mach 1.2 (915 mph, 1,470 km/h)
    • At altitude: Mach 2+ (1,500 mph, 2,414 km/h)
  • Combat radius: 340 mi (295 nm, 550 km) on a hi-lo-hi mission with six 1,000 lb (450 kg) bombs
  • Ferry range: 2,280 NM (2,620 mi, 4,220 km) with drop tanks
  • Service ceiling 60,000+ ft (18,000+ m)
  • Rate of climb: 50,000 ft/min (254 m/s)
  • Wing loading: 88.3 lb/ft² (431 kg/m²)
  • Thrust/weight: For F100 engine: 0.898; For F110: 1.095
  • (According to Wikipedia).
Unit Cost

F-16A/B: US$14.6 million (1998)
F-16C/D: US$18.8 million (1998)
F-16E/F: US$55.3 million (2008








F 16 is used by World best air force like Pakistan Air force (PAF), USA, India and much more. It is famous in targeting and gives ever best results. It is the new era of aviation and much better then Mig 31 (my last post). I give rating 9/10 to F 16, The fighter falcon.

MIg-31 Fastest Fighter Plane. Fly About more then SPEED OF SOUND)))).





MiG - 31 is considered as the fastest fighter plane ever. It Travel at a very high speed around about 3000km/h or 1860.3mp/h at a high alltitude about 2.83Mach. It travels about 1500km/h at low altitude around 1.2 Mach.
It have a charming design, high speed engine. It cost around 50-60 million Us$ per unit. It was firstly introduce in 1982 and first flight was on 16 September 1975. It's primary users are Russian air force, Kazakhstan air force and Syrian Air force.
