Taco Cowboy writes: A miniature drone that weight just 5 pounds (or about 2.3KG) may become the next in thing for the US Army.

Officially known as " the Lethal Miniature Aerial Munition System", or LMAMS, the miniature drone can be armed with high explosives, and can be flown to slam into a target 6 miles (or 9.6KM) away.

It is much cheaper than smart bombs, and it is much easier to be handled and store, and can kill with much precision.
