    Within the next few decades, armed forces could be using unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) with adaptable aircraft technologies that alternate between fixed-wing flight and rotary-wing flight. Engineers from BAE Systems together with students from Cranfield University, have revealed a new technology concept - named Adaptable UAVs - which can alternate between the two different flight modes in the same mission. When in rotary wing mode the UAVs can be launched and recovered from battlefields and docked on a special pole.

Let's see how long it takes for EA to hammer this video with a DMCA for infringing on their Command&Conquer IP rights cause from my PoV this very much looked like one of their cheesy Cutscenes from back in the 90s xD

You build those right now if you wanted. But if an enemy were to let you that close then they cant be doing their job right. Also the launchers might have some built anti-frying tech like EMP protection, what if the launchers had some kind of EM field that protected them. Another point out is these launchers are meant to shoot down aircraft or is this against china because third world countries are becoming non-existent for exploitation.
