United States Drone Force


Unmanned Fixed-Wing | Rotorcraft | Drones

The United States armed services showcases one of the world's largest unmanned drone forces centered primarily on Intelligence-Surveillance-Reconnaissance (ISR) types as well as direct-attack. These entries run the gamut of portable, hand-launched propeller-driven systems to runway-launched, jet-powered designs capable of loitering anywhere from hours to days / weeks with ever more advanced designs in the pipeline. All of the major services have invested in unmanned designs for use at the tactical and strategic levels with payoffs already seen in the wars in Afghanistan, Iraq, and Ukraine.

NOTES: The USN has given up its fleet of MQ-8C Fire Scout rotary-wing UAVs as of June 2024. Estimates have been made for specific entries when official totals are not made available. With relatively reduced complexity and maintenance requirements, UAVs maintain some of the highest readiness rates in the U.S. air services.
