Won't be long until these things are fully autonomous and make decisions using AI to prevent the signals being jammed or intercepted. Scary thought.
The drone is probably cheaper than the missiles.

Blimey. I'm losing track of the drones being developed for the UK Armed Forces this one looks quite remarkable.
No doubt with the lessons from Ukraine being incorporated into the design.

"Hydra" with the army, dropping missiles
"W Autonomous Systems" doing basically COD
"Malloy T600", backed by BAE for vertical transport
The Vampire / Bandhee thing being launched from QE
"Proteus". Which sounds like a kind of Merlin supplement
What seems to be missing is an Ikara replacement ie "torpedo range extender"
