The Marine Corps is buying a new drone that can land and take off in water, unlike any other aircraft in the service’s unmanned fleet.
The RQ-20A Puma AE, produced by AeroVironment Inc., is capable of operating in nearly any condition — hot, cold, wet or dry — making it well-suited for maritime operations.
But the Corps isn’t using the Puma for at-sea efforts, at least not yet.
The recent order is to support troops in Afghanistan, according to Marine officials.
