I agree that drones are a great leap forward in a safer ability to attack or watch our enemies, but vs the value if a fighter jet ..... Drones have no defensive capabilities, and against most military forces would be blown out of the sky in seconds.

Guess the math would be

1 F35 @ $90 million = 22 Preditor drones @ $4. Million


Can 22 non defensive Predator drones be blown out of the sky faster than 1 F35? (If we ever see a production version of an F35 fly)

I would say yes, but would also agree that something cheaper than an F35 would have the same result.
