Sniper Squadron 3396


David Knapp

Sniper Squadron 3396 shows off the design of the SQ-5, a variable-geometry aircraft developed for the United States Navy. These unmanned drones are capable of flying at high rates of speed and low altitudes to avoid enemy detection, using their "swing wings" to reduce airspeed and stabilize the craft before firing. Squadrons of SQ-5s operate alongside Navy SEAL teams on the ground, taking out targets with speed, accuracy and precision.
