- Elon Musk said the US military’s vaunted F-35 stealth jet “would have no chance” against a drone remotely piloted by a human.
- “The competitor should be a drone fighter plane that’s remote controlled by a human, but with its maneuvers augmented by autonomy,” Musk tweeted on Friday.
- “It’s not that I want the future to be this. That’s just what the future will be,” Musk said in separate comments. “The fighter jet era has passed. Yeah, the fighter jet era has passed. It’s drones.”
