History Of Unmanned Aerial Vehicles
An Unmanned aerial vehicle
Unmanned aerial vehicle
(UAV) is a Unmanned Aerial Vehicle. UAVs include both autonomous (means they can do it alone) drones and remotely piloted vehicles (RPVs). A UAV is capable of controlled, sustained level flight and is powered by a jet, reciprocating, or electric engine.[citation needed] In the 21st century, technology reached a point of sophistication that the UAV is now being given a greatly expanded role in many areas of aviation. A UAV differs from a cruise missile in that a UAV is intended to be recovered after its mission, while a cruise missile impacts its target

Aerial Torpedo
An aerial torpedo, airborne torpedo or air-dropped torpedo[1] is a naval weapon, a torpedo, that an aircraft—fixed-wing aircraft or helicopter—drops in the water, after which the weapon propels itself to the target.[2] First used in World War I, air-dropped torpedoes were used extensively in World War II, and remain in limited use. Aerial torpedoes are generally smaller and lighter than submarine- and surface-launched torpedoes. Historically, the term "aerial torpedo" meant flying bombs and pilotless drone aircraft used as weapons, which would today be called cruise missiles.[3][4] Today, the term refers primarily to water-borne torpedoes launched from the air.Contents1 History1.1 Origins 1.2 First torpedo aircraft 1.3 First World War 1.4 Interwar years 1.5 World War II 1.6 Korean War 1.7 Modern weapons2 Design 3 See also 4 References 5 External linksHistory[edit] Origins[edit]In 1915, Rear Admiral Bradley A.

Marilyn Monroe
Marilyn
Marilyn
Monroe (born Norma Jeane Mortenson; June 1, 1926 – August 5, 1962) was an American actress, model, and singer. Famous for playing comic "blonde bombshell" characters, she became one of the most popular sex symbols of the 1950s and was emblematic of the era's attitudes towards sexuality. Although she was a top-billed actress for only a decade, her films grossed $200 million by the time of her unexpected death in 1962.[1] More than half a century later, she continues to be a major popular culture icon.[2] Born and raised in Los Angeles, Monroe spent most of her childhood in foster homes and an orphanage and married at the age of sixteen. While working in a radioplane factory in 1944 as part of the war effort, she was introduced to a photographer from the First Motion Picture Unit and began a successful pin-up modeling career
