Your Nation's View on UCAVs

Postby Atlantica » Mon May 20, 2013 6:42 am

Does your nation widely use UCAV (Unmanned Combat Aerial Vehicle)s in your Air Force/Army/Navy (Military)? Or does your nation and the military despise UCAVs and not use them?

Oh, and as for ourselves, we think UCAVs are the way to the future, and widely use them in our military.

Most Legion aircraft are unmanned, and "piloted" by a combat AI. The term UCAV hasn't been used for centuries, however.

We prefer a more hands-on approach. UAVs are mainly only used as scouts or search and rescue vehicles.

The Kouralian Royal Navy makes great use of UAVs on vessels such as the RKNV Luna, a special UAV carrier designed to offer air-support in much smaller packages than a full Flight-deck Cruiser or Aircraft Carrier.

Our military uses drones very liberally and constantly develops new drone tech. We see them as no different than any guided weapon and rightly boggle when people basically claim them to be some sort of hellish contraptions that go out of their operator's orders to kill civilians and eat orphans. As a matter of fact the GPH Air Force is notable in that it operates an unusually large quantity of unmanned aerial vehicles, from simpler reconnaissance and precision attack models to the more sophisticated "air parity" unmanned combat vehicles and bombers.

The strict military code of honour does not permit the usage of UCAV's. Although the procurement departments of the military have suggested the usage of such vehicles, all of which have been blocked by High Command and as such they have never been brought into active service. Unmanned vehicles operated by Koyro consist entirely of bomb disposal drones and sea mine disposal drones. The AIr Force makes use of only manned aircraft. Our Commanders see them as a "gimmick" used by the decedent western powers, drone development will ultimately come to a halt and drones will be relegated to reconnaissance usage only.

UCAVs are commonly used by both the military and the police in Pavonistade, but Pavonistadian UCAVs are not allowed to enter foreign land unless:

  • the land is under Pavonistadian occupation
  • the national government governing the land grants Pavonistadians permissions to use UCAVs in the area
  • the land is part of a nation that is in war with Pavonistade

Our military forces are almost entirely automated. The only dasquitines deployed in the field are there for oversight and intelligence gathering, or to neutralize enemy spellcasters/psychics.

The Radiatian Federation uses drones extensively, especially for recon but also occasionally for certain combat missions, such as anti-terrorist operations. There is very little controversy over their use - indeed most Radiatians support further research into drone warfare, especially given that it is generally less hazardous to the lives of Radiatian troops.

We use them extensively for recon and minor assaults of fortified areas. There is little to no cintraversity about there use as it is widely believed that the use of drones keeps the death of Sedik soldiers lower then normal. We also use UGV (Unmanned ground vehecals) in unison with both tank squads and troop battalions.

We have a fair-sized fleet of UAVs - few of them are armed - many of which are currently assisting our allies in Bereum by scouting militant forces in their troubled southern regions.

Unmanned combat aerial vehicles are used by all three branches of the Unified Korongolese Defence Forces in both reconnaissance and light attack roles. The Air Force operates several squadrons of the MQ-9K Reaper and to a lesser extent the EADS Barracuda. The Barracuda is intended to eventually replace the Reaper in Korongolese service. The Army operates the MQ-8B Firescout alongside several smaller unarmed drones with no replacement in sight. The Navy was the last branch of the UKND to begin UCAV operations and as a result only operates them in small numbers, at the moment an armed variant of the Bell Eagle Eye is the only UCAV in service with the Navy.

we do not have a military. we do use large numbers of remotely and autonimously opperated anti-gravity "eyes" that also double as transport for semi-autonimous mini and micro robotics. while they may also at times be armed with effective force, they are never armed with lethal force.

any law abiding cameroi citizen may own and opperate them as well. and many, as a hobby, do.
