Pictured above, a mechanic works on Neuron, an unmanned stealth drone developed by a group of European nations, led by the French. "nEUROn" is a working concept for an "Unmanned Combat Air Vehicle" and includes fuselage designed by SAAB, Sweden. The craft has a 41 ft wingspan, weighs 10,000 lb when empty and can carry two 500 lb bombs. It first launched in December 2012, and has since completed 50 test flights -- the most recent completed this month. The project won't result in commercial production, instead serving to prove various technologies needed to for the next-generation of combat aircraft on the continent.
