This “Voltron” stealth bomber seems out of a science fiction movie, but it’s one of the aircraft concepts that military powerhouse BAE Systems is working on: A single bomber/drone would fly as one from the home base, then divide into three aeroplanes to execute different tasks in the same area and reassemble to return to the base.

In fact, they actually got inspired by Transformers and the way geese fly. They claim that this architecture will make these weapons more fuel efficient. Check out the complete video at the BBC.
