How to Profit From “Terminator Drones”

The war in Ukraine has proven to be a crucible for military technology.

Much of what we’ve seen has been old school.

It turns out trenches, minefields, and artillery are still a huge part of modern warfare.

However, we’ve also seen a glimpse of the future — namely through the use of unmanned vehicles, which will one day come to replace troops altogether.

In just the past week, the Ukrainian military says its drones took out 205 Russian assets, including 64 heavy guns, 27 tanks, 55 trucks, 38 armored combat vehicles, and three pieces of radio equipment.

This has been a running theme of the war, as Ukrainian forces have leveraged small, simple, cheaply built drones to overwhelm larger, more formidable, expensive, and complex enemy weaponry.

In addition to taking out artillery, tanks, and trucks, Ukrainian drones have also been used to sink or decommission large ships in Russia’s Black Sea fleet and neutralize fighter jets idling in airfields.

They’ve even been used to assail government buildings in downtown Moscow and damage or destroy key infrastructure like the 12-mile-long, $4 billion Kerch Bridge that connects Crimea to mainland Russia.

Indeed, the commander of one Ukrainian drone outfit estimates that with just $700,000 of equipment, his unit has destroyed more than $80 million worth of Russian equipment.

And they’ve accomplished all of this with minimal human casualties.

Given that, it’s no wonder Ukraine is taking major steps to expand its drone capabilities, pouring billions of dollars into a manufacturing build-out and attempting to train more than 10,000 new drone pilots this year. 

But what you have to realize is that’s just the start.

We're currently in the very earliest stages of this transition. 

We are on the precipice of a transformational shift that will see these small, cheap drones grow in size and capability — so much so that they replace manned fighters entirely. 

In the future, there’s not going to be any Top Gun school where pilots spend weeks, months, and years perfecting their craft.

Instead, AI pilots terminator drones are going to take their place.

These AI pilots will be programmed to understand an aircraft’s exact capabilities and limitations. And they will trust those metrics even when a human pilot wouldn’t have the confidence or physical ability to execute on them. 

How do I know this?

Because it’s already happening, and I’ve been closely following this highly secretive project for years.

That’s why I know that back in 2016 an AI pilot called Alpha beat an experienced human combat flight instructor.

And a few years later in 2020, another AI algorithm beat out seven teams of human fighter pilots in a virtual dogfight.  

I even know that Chinese scientists got similar results earlier this year when an AI pilot bested a human pilot stationed remotely on the ground.

But most importantly, I know the company that’s been cooperating with our military to take experiments like these and turn them into reality.

It’s all part of “Project Wingman” an effort that’s paired autonomous drones with manned craft to create an unbeatable team.

These AI wingmen are gearing up to fly right alongside our pilots in F-16s, F-35s, and B-2s. 

They can fly ahead of their manned counterparts, probing enemy defenses with sensors and radar equipment. 

What they find can be instantly relayed to fighter formations, providing a real-time map of enemy targets and potential threats. 

They can also act offensively, jamming enemy aircraft systems, providing covering fire for their companions, and eliminating anti-air defenses with rockets and bombs.

And they can do it all autonomously, pooling vast amounts of data and intelligence from the military’s cloud, processing it, and acting on it in a fraction of the time it would take a human to even comprehend.

That’s why they will one day come to replace humans altogether. 

Remember, just last week, a pilot ejected from an F-35, leaving the military to scramble to find out where the jet ended up.

Well, imagine if instead, an AI pilot was simply able to resume control of the jet and land it safely. 

That’s what we’re working toward, and that’s why the company I’ve found to profit from this trend has so much potential

Like I said, it’s been a key Pentagon partner in this endeavor for years, and it’s hardly a household name. 

It’s not one of the Big Five or a massive conglomerate.

On the contrary, it’s quite small, which is why investors have such a terrific opportunity to profit.

You have to act fast, though, because the window won’t stay open forever. 

So get all the details here while you can.

Fight on,
