A hit counts, but a missile cost ya...

However, this French missile supposedly is "low cost", has a six hour loiter time, 62 mile range (I'm assuming this is a telemetry limitation, as it seems pretty clear it's travelling over 10 mph).

I don't know in what ways this differs from the US UAVs, though I'm given to understand that ours are guided by satellite, which creates latency issues.

Just curious if the timing of this press release is somehow designed to elicit support in the US for the UN Arms Treaty?
