Subject: Remotely controlled aircraft and War In The Ice
DrCruel    12/5/2011 3:42:38 PM
Quite a while back, in the late 1970s or perhaps the early 1980s, I remember a game called "War In The Ice" - I think by Dunnigan - that posited the idea of remotely pilotted aircraft replacing manned aircraft by 2010 or so. Anyone else remember this game? How close did Dunnigan get to predicting what has actually come to pass (I mean, outside of wars in Antarctica over oil reserves, and aliens being found alive under the ice, etc)? Maybe my mind is filling in details that just weren't there, but I seem to recall he got quite a bit of this UAV and drone business pretty close to the mark.
