The development comes when there is already much hue and cry around the world about the collateral damage these drones have resulted over the past decade and even the UN has recently appointed a commission to probe into the deaths of the innocent civilians by the drone strikes.

The British Super Done can fly faster than the speed of the sound and can eavade radar detection with its single-wing stealth design.

The revolutionary super drone is due to make its maiden flight in the next few weeks and could spearhead the fight against  terrorism in Africa.

The military in UK believes that Taranis’s ground-breaking technology will allow a powerful new generation of drones equipped with deadly payloads to fly from British bases to attack targets worldwide.

But the new developments in pilotless aircraft are controversial as they allow the possibility of autonomous computers  targeting and killing enemy combatants outside human  control. Experts even warned last night that the new technology raised the nightmare spectre of out-of-control robots waging war on humans – and called for a global ban on autonomous technology.
