Colorado Army NG Opens Training Grounds For Combat Drones With Troops
We've heard a lot about drones lately. Whether used as a government spy mechanism, taking photos at sporting events, or for fun, they can be useful in many different ways. A new facility is making its way at Buckley Air Force Base in Aurora Colorado, to train for drone combat.
This is a new maintenance and training facility for what is now known as the unmanned RQ-7 Shadow. They will be taken to Ft. Carson, Colorado to be flown on restricted air space. They will be equipped to carry rockets and bombs into combat situations.
The new facility, which opened over the weekend, will allow the drones to train closely with troops before being sent into combat operations.
