      Dear Professor Where are you? I remember you and I argued a bit about drones, and their prospects in the Navy. This is the first accident, I’m sure they will be. And note that this accident was not during landing, the plane stupidly got out of control and decided to ram its ship. Probably the pilots poured coffee on the remote laughing .

        Who said the first? UAVs fall around regularly; this is quite a common thing for them. And the planes are also falling. So do not fly?

        Not the first time!
        In April 2012, the United States suspended flights of the MQ-8B Fire Scout drones. This was due, among other things, to the crash of one such aircraft, which failed to land on the frigate’s deck due to a malfunction of the automatic landing system. Then the aircraft had to land in the sea.

      "The BQM-74 drone was launched from the naval base at Point Mag. It was a fairly large device about 4 m long with a wingspan of more than 1,5 m. During the flight, it lost its course and crashed into a cruiser, the causes of the problem are being established , RT reports. "

      and here is another quote:

      “In April 2012, the United States suspended flights of MQ-8B Fire Scout drones. This was due, among other things, to the crash of one such aircraft, which failed to land on the deck of a frigate due to a failure of the automatic landing system. Then the aircraft had to be landed at sea . "

      This goes back to the article on air defense / missile defense of the US Navy. When they know in advance which route and what time the mess will fly. And still managed not to bring her down, moreover, the cruiser defeated the target, because she portrayed RCC.
      What can we say about Soviet / Russian missiles with multiple and maneuvering warheads if they shoot down their targets every other time.

    And smart people have always doubted ...
    They themselves do not fly. (Ambiguous but ...)
    God forbid some "kamikaze" so he has no reason to catapult.
    Sorry confused, hard to see.

    Just imagine that suddenly the pistol was told: "shoot the enemy."
    He fired the enemy and another half dozen and heaps of parallel.
    Will there be a war crime?

    The BQM-74 drone was launched from the Point Mage naval base. It was a fairly large apparatus with a length of about 4 m with a wingspan of more than 1,5 m. During the flight, he lost his course and crashed into a cruiser, the causes of the malfunction are established, reports RT.

        Somewhere it flashed that they were working out a system of counteraction. In this case, the operator may not have to do with it. Attacks of the ship in automatic mode or as a result of countermeasures of the UAV's means of protection "got lost" and caught fire.

      No need to fantasize. This video was in an article about testing a ship-based combat laser. Model target flares up in flight. What does the Northrop BQM-74 subsonic target look like Chukar showed OLP in his post above. And here is another photo:

          It seems that the burst line behind the flying target is from the 20 mm Vulkan-Falanks ZAU, and from the side - from the 25 mm Bushmaster ZAU. Shells do not count.

    A ship with 300 sailors on board was damaged

    The failure of an unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) led to an emergency during the naval exercises of the US Navy. A Navy statement said the failed drone crashed into a ship off the coast of California. As a result, two sailors received minor burns, writes The Los Angeles Times.

    The sailors who were on board the USS Chancellorsville cruiser used an aircraft to test the ship's radar tracking system. A drone with a wingspan of almost 6 feet (about 2 meters) was controlled from Point Mugu Naval Base Airport. Some time after the start of the flight, the UAV crashed into the left side of the missile cruiser, on which there were about 300 crew members. As a result, the ship was damaged and returned to the port in San Diego.

    With minor damage, the ship would not go to port.

    The expanses of the Pacific Ocean, a cruiser 150m long, 20 wide, and 15 meters high, it’s not a fact that you will get a Yakhont with all the desire, but then there’s a clap with the victims.
    It didn’t look nice to the boys: a pimple operator with long greasy hair, who tried the girl only on the experience of porn sites, we can say a programmer - the American army elite decided to effectively conduct a sample of the perfection of American design thought over the heads of ordinary sailors - therefore, he did not calculate the pitch in the most crucial section ways)))

    The development of unmanned vehicles can not be stopped. One way or another, this direction will develop. And accidents are inevitable, as with everything new. The time will come when drones will be equivalent to a combat aircraft with a full set of weapons and fuel tanks. That accident of that drone of the future would lead to disaster. Most likely, in the future, such accidents are inevitable.
    After all, no, yes, but there are accidents with aircraft controlled by pilots. And drones will not be an exception.

      Northrop BQM-74 Chukar - the first flight of 1968 did not say that it is a very modern drone. Yes, it’s not completely unmanned, but an unmanned aerial target.
      During exercises, far from the first approach, a physical defeat of the target occurs, then they simply will not save enough (expensive) for the entire exercise. Usually, a conditional hit of a target occurs when the projectile explodes at a certain distance from the target itself, then the Mesen flies over the ship, but on one of the next approach they can already destroy it. At this moment, apparently, a jamb occurred.
      Meanwhile, someone is afraid, and someone, despite all the risks of complexity, goes ahead and solves the problems that arise on the way. By the way, I’m almost sure that sooner or later some kind of incident will happen on the aircraft carrier.
      The aircraft carrier "Theodore Roosevelt".
      Both X-47B are in trials.

    A new modification of the Aegis Baseline 9 was recently installed on the Chancellorsville cruiser, and the cruiser has recently tested air defense systems. Alternatively, the flying target worked off the attack of low-flying anti-ship missiles and air defense systems were supposed to bring it down, but something happened and the flying target hit the ship. Judging by the tests, they most likely worked out the near air defense, because Standards and artillery fired back in the summer. Either the missile doesn’t exit the missile launcher, or the miss. Also, if the Standards were fulfilled, the operator would have had a lot of time to eliminate in the event of a miss, and it seems that there was little time and he just did not have time. Perhaps the Phalanx has screwed up.
