    The Pentagon has been pushing for bat drones for the last few years. The biggest advantage they don't show is that these can be flown at night, making it even harder to tell if they are robots and not animals, and they are highly maneuverable, as well as, efficient fliers. During WWII the Pentagon devised a way to use real bats as drones by strapping incendiary devices to them and releasing them in the large numbers over a large city like Tokyo. The assumption was they would take their explosives and roost under the eves of the nearest buildings.

    Leonardo Da Vinci was a weapons designer who invented the crossbow, which does not require years to master like an ordinary bow, and this bat robot looks a lot like his designs.

    Technology has progressed since Vinzenz Chalupsky's ornithopters of the 1930's seen in the Youtube video Aeronautical Oddities posted in the thread Aeronautical Oddities at 8:05 in the video.

    The Pentagon has created a monster, with the technology they have created becoming so complex and varied that they are beginning to struggle to keep up with it all themselves, and nobody on the planet spends more money on technology than the Pentagon. All that anyone knows for sure at this point, is that without continuing technological advances the planet is doomed.
