12th October 2011 - 15:00 GMT | by Beth Stevenson in Washington, DC


The US Army UAS project office has reaffirmed that it is not planning on weaponising its Shadow fleet, despite concentrating efforts into doing just that for the USMC's platforms.

'The Marine Corps will choose their weapon and we'll integrate it,' he continued, hinting that this effort will manifest over the next few months.
