    (i) Quite often JTACs (or NATO FACs for instance) prefer two seaters for the very reasons you gave. Backseater is of great help in awareness.
    If we look at the tactical fleets of most air forces there are a far smaller number of two seaters available though.

    Agree although most of the UAVS used in IRQ/AFG also have the capability to stream data to troops directly as well as home base. For example even a small unit like Scan Eagle was capable of this in 2004.
    Enabled by Harris Corporation's National Security Agency-approved Type 1 classified SecNet-11®Plus technology in ScanEagle's avionics bay, streaming video and voice-over IP communication was sent from a ground control station over a secure high-bandwidth network to ScanEagle 18 miles away. The data was then instantaneously relayed to ground personnel six miles from the UAV.

    Yes, drones, aircrafts, boots integration for CAS is somewhere a model for integrated battlenet. One of the fastest moving areas.

    Except it looks nothing like a Predator and is unlikely to be capable of carrying a weapon, but yes otherwise a totally valid story.

    agree, pentagon may well regret they ever cooked up the idea of combat drones in the first instance
    the missile will require about five times the G capability of the target to complete a successful intercept.

    Old radar types never die; they just phased array
