Drones and naval warfare

This story of China using a drone to keep tabs on US Navy ships passing through the Taiwan straight raises an interesting question of how drones (UAVs) will affect naval warfare in the future.  I am not sure anyone knows.

Iran looks like it is pushing to pick a fight. Note at the end of the story the bit about the drone.

I’ve posted on this thing previously.  It seems to have come out of nowhere.  I can see where something like this will be very valuable as a force multiplier, which the US really needs if China is our biggest strategic threat.

Speaking of the future, this is coming, and sooner than you think.  Already in use.

Interesting article on the integration of UAVs as wingmen/force multipliers for our manned fighter aircraft.  I have little doubt that this is the wave of the future in air warfare.  My question is how quickly it can be accomplished, and can any other countries develop such technology fairly quickly.

No, not the DH.98 Mosquito.  Rather a drone being developed for resupply by the Marines.  Great concept. Good cost effectiveness. Out of the box thinking.

Looks like the USAF is testing a jet drone to operate along side conventional fighters.  Hmmm.

This is not good news.  A nuke capable drone sub with a 3000 mile range.
