Maybe someone else here is better at evaluating flight capabilities than I am, but it doesn't appear that these things would hold up well against a nation that had any combat aircraft. Additionally, I'd bet their armament wouldn't hold up well against a fortified emplacement or armored vehicle.

What a wonderful world DARPA has created.
