One thought on “The Black Armada”

  1. “A Novelet of Air War of the Future” – I’d love to submit something to these guys – like Paul J. Nahin’s “The Man in the Gray Weapons Suit” (1979), describing a jet fighter so automated that the pilot merely decides what to do:  The plane’s onboard computer flies it and, when he is wounded and unresponsive, the plane itself returns him to home base. 

    (We had the technology:  The Space Shuttle could de-orbit and land entirely under its own control.  They tested it once – basically said, “Home, James,” and sat back.  It worked perfectly.)
