    MPUAV: The Cormorant Story- Submarine launched aircraft

    Pretty cool. :cool::clap2:


    It can rise out of the depths from a nuclear-powered submarine, spread its wings and fly above the sea.

    Nuclear-armed submarines, once a cornerstone of the Cold war deterrent, may soon find a new 21st century mission. Lockheed Martin is developing an unmanned aircraft that can be released from the ballistic missile tube of a Trident Submarine -- 150 feet underwater. Floating to the surface, its wings unfold, booster rockets fire, and it is airborne.
