Cessna Caravans are great observation/attack platforms. That's why the video is in an anti-UAV context. DoD is sending MANNED C-12s to Iraq/Afghanistan because UAV don't work. www.combatreform.org www.geocities.com Though the Cessna 208B single-engined turboprop land and seaplane is not a STOL aircraft per say (it needs to be upgraded with lift devices so it can land in under 500 feet, Cessna!) it is a ROUGH FIELD aircraft--as YOUTUBE user airbornebaby demonstrates here landing in the Papua mountains!

We need a Rhodesian-style FireForce using Cessna-type observation/attack Bird Dogs like the Sadler Piranha/MILVAMP to locate & attack and AUs to act as gunships and quick reaction force delivery means so we can prevail in sub-national conflicts (SNCs) as well as locate hiding enemies in nation-state wars (NSWs). www.combatreform.org Iraqi Air Force Better Equipped than Racketeer US Military Bureaucracy of Incompetents! Having BILLIONS $$$ of dollars to waste like the US military has resulted in beaucoup purchases of BS like Predator UAVs that cannot see squat, constantly crash and cannot transport any troops or supplies. SAIC is now offering an armed Caravan that can be flown either by pilots or unmanned. Of course we will not likely buy Caravan fixed-wing AU ...
