Apparently, the age of weaponized drone swarms has arrived, “and that’s a terrifying reality to comprehend.”
Ever since technological advancements made drones possible, people have warned of the potential dangers of weaponised UAVs (unmanned aerial vehicles), which could effectively become murderous slaughterbots we need to defend ourselves against.
Now, it looks like those fears have become a reality. The Russian Ministry of Defence claims its forces in Syria were attacked a week ago by a swarm of home-made drones — the first time such a coordinated assault has been reported in a military action.
On this occasion, according to the Ministry of Defense, the terrorist attack was successfully warded off. But what about the next time — and the times after the next time?
