Submission + - U.S. Flew Kamikaze Drones Against Taliban (suasnews.com) 3

garymortimer writes: "The U.S. military has launched miniature kamikaze drones against Taliban targets and plans to deploy more next year for U.S. special operating forces, according to documents and an Army official.

The tube-launched “Switchblade” drone, made by Monrovia, California-based Aerovironment Inc., was secretly sent to Afghanistan for the first time last year. “Under a dozen” were fired, said Army Deputy Product Director William Nichols."
