UK supersonic stealth drone preparing for test flight
An unmanned plane capable of supersonic flight will undergo flight tests to check whether it can be allowed to join the ranks of British defence aircraft.

The Taranis stealth combat drone was originally unveiled in 2010 and has already completed a series of tests of its propulsion system and low observable platform, but must now undergo flight trials in 2013.

"The progress being made on the programme, and the learning we are taking from it, is very positive," said Future Combat Air Systems director, Tom Fillingham, of the previous round of testing. "The drive now to getting Taranis in the air clearly shows the confidence industry and the UK's MOD has in the UK's ability to develop world-leading unmanned combat aircraft technologies and capabilities."
