RQ-8A or RQ-8B?[edit]

Born2flie: The picture in the infobox says that it is the Fire Scout landing on the USS Nashville, but it is a three-bladed main rotor and two-bladed tail rotor ship. The text says that is the RQ-8A, but the text also says that it was the RQ-8B that landed on the Nashville. Which is it? --04:05, 20 December 2006 (UTC)

Read it again... "In January of 2006, an RQ-8A Fire Scout landed aboard the U.S. Navy warship USS Nashville while it was steaming off the coast of Maryland near the Patuxent River. This marked the first time an unmanned helicopter has landed aboard a moving U.S. Navy ship without a pilot controlling the aircraft. The USS Nashville, which is an amphibious transport ship, was maneuvering as fast as 17 mph in the tests."

At the time of the shipboard landing tests the "B" (4 blades) model wasn't completed yet. As the article says the "A" (3 blades)did the landing tests. Both models only have the 2 blade TR. A 4 blade TR has been discussed but currently is not part of this program at this time.

Armada Española[edit]

I removed Armada Española from the list of operators because this UAV seems to still be in testing and there is no mention anywhere in the article that any Fire Scouts have been sold to anyone outside the US Military. 75.69.0.58 (talk) 18:47, 17 August 2009 (UTC)

Blacklisted Links Found on the Main Page[edit]

Cyberbot II has detected that page contains external links that have either been globally or locally blacklisted. Links tend to be blacklisted because they have a history of being spammed, or are highly innappropriate for Wikipedia. This, however, doesn't necessarily mean it's spam, or not a good link. If the link is a good link, you may wish to request whitelisting by going to the request page for whitelisting. If you feel the link being caught by the blacklist is a false positive, or no longer needed on the blacklist, you may request the regex be removed or altered at the blacklist request page. If the link is blacklisted globally and you feel the above applies you may request to whitelist it using the before mentioned request page, or request its removal, or alteration, at the request page on meta. When requesting whitelisting, be sure to supply the link to be whitelisted and wrap the link in nowiki tags. The whitelisting process can take its time so once a request has been filled out, you may set the invisible parameter on the tag to true. Please be aware that the bot will replace removed tags, and will remove misplaced tags regularly.

 Resolved This issue has been resolved, and I have therefore removed the tag, if not already done. No further action is necessary.—cyberbot II NotifyOnline 20:41, 9 April 2014 (UTC)
