It's important not to temp fate or anything - Skyborg is definitely a moniker that doesn't scream technological singularity, the rise of the machines, or the extinction of mankind. Haven't I seen this EXACT NARRATIVE play out before?
 
Good grief. Screw the Air Force. It would, of course, BE the Air Force that kills us all. The Army and Navy almost always stay in their own lane. Why can't the flyboys just be... well... normal? They could start by not naming their killer pilot robot "killer pilot robot."

While the name is somewhat ominous, the program itself seems to have potential. Developing a wingman to help in some particularly dangerous missions could really reduce the cost in lives. I could see these AIs having alot of benefits in a SEAD, "Wild Weasel" role. 

Anyway, let's start getting worried when they get to weapons tests :Smile_hiding:
