Target drone can be defined as an unmanned remote controlled aerial vehicle, mostly utilized in the anti-aircraft crews training. The British DH.82 Queen Bee was one of the earliest drones and was a variant of the Tiger Moth trainer aircraft.
Target drones are similar to radio-controlled model aircrafts. More modern drones may use countermeasures, radar, and similar systems to mimic manned aircraft.
In the modern advanced drones, large, older missiles with their warheads removed are used.
In the United Kingdom, obsolete Royal Air Force and Royal Navy jet and propeller-powered aircraft have been modified into remote controlled drones at a high cost. Owing to the presence of larger budget, the U.S.
military is planning to convert retired aircraft or older versions of still serving aircraft into remotely piloted targets. After the modification, these can be used for USAF, USN and USMC use as Full Scale Aerial Targets or FSATs.supply.
