Ok, it isn't unmanned as in it is AI controlled. There are remote operators. You are just looking at the next generation of UAVs like the UAF's Global Hawk.

aye

for the down right stupidly simple fact that no one has managed to build an AI (and they tried and they still try very hard) and than the next problem is how to create a stable AI.

They are just slightly more fancy RC planes that the kids us on the local field (With as bonus they got rockets bombs and more fancy fireworks and buttons)

Yes Liandras, they have tried for some semblance of AI but it will never find it's way into this kind of application. Nobody wants a program with no moral compass or regard for life to be so well armed. Even with hard wired safeties to override it's access to it's own weapon systems and return it to base. I can see us getting to that point technologically but the red tape with throw the project into a stall indefinitely unless a major conflict like World War III broke out.

I would totally build a super-evil AI and put it in something completely immobile and harmless, just to argue with it and fun of it.

point is for warfare a VI can do about anything a AI could do. If you just program it with enough senrios it will do the same things as an AI would do.

But in the end the public and me included wants an human behind the controls in one way or the other.

Exactly. Only a human pilot would realize the strike package issued includes a target too close to civilian structures and requires a different bomb or rocket. A programed drone would just fire whatever was selected prior to launch no matter how the situation within the strike zone has changed.

Because the human pilot always makes sure not to drop his 'package' in the presence of civilians and his own troops.

What could a robot do that humans haven't already done to themselves? When it comes to killing humans, humans are the best in the business.

VI would be very usefull for survailance drones and such

Robots are after all for the DDD jobs

Dull
Dirty
Dangerous

specialy Dull is a very dangerous thing in war for quite some friendly fire has taken place because people where simply tired.
