Lists 93 Battlefield Drones & Flags of Origin

The MilitaryFactory[dot]com reports that flags of origin do not necessarily indicate today’s primary drone operators.  This listing of primary sources, i.e., points of origin, surveys military applications.  If one turns to a different topic and considers commercial apps in the civilian market, many additional drone platforms are available that may pique the researcher’s interests, for example, the Aergility Atlis.  Credits: shown are the Lockheed Martin X-56A (MUTT) [orange winglets] and the Northrop Grumman Bat UAV.
