The camera-enabled, 6-pound, 24-inch-long Switchblade is small and light enough to fit in a backpack. The tube-launched UAV can be guided to its intended target using a hand-held ground control station before detonating its explosive round by simply flying into the target. The tiny killer can fly for up to 10 minutes. Army officials confirmed in February that the Switchblade officially became lethal earlier this year, scoring several hits on enemy targets.
