Gray Eagle Draws First Blood

Service sources have confirmed that the U.S. Army’s MQ-1C Gray Eagle UAS has participated in its first lethal combat engagements in Afghanistan.

“For QRC 2 we have already fired in anger and we have destroyed some of the enemy. So we had ‘a first.’ We had a Gray Eagle up there, we lased/self designated and we killed an enemy. Then we lased another target for an A-10 and it dropped something onto [the target] and also took out the enemy. So we are weapons capable.”

    (well, now they work 9-5, go home to the wife and kids in the burbs, have a BBQ on Sundays after the game, then back to more killing first thing Monday morning)
