Army Divisions will get 9 Gray Eagles to train, but will deploy with 12

 

U.S. ArmyWashington, D.C. – The Army plans additional Gray Eagle units, one for each of 10 active-duty divisions, and several more for special operations units, aerial exploitation units and the National Training Center at Fort Irwin, CA.

With the current program of record, a purchase of 152 Gray Eagles in total, the Army won’t have enough of the aircraft to give a full assignment of 12 aircraft to every one of the divisions it plans on equipping; so some may get as few as nine aircraft. But when those units go downrange, they will get a full component, Army aviation officials said.

The Gray Eagle is the Army’s newest “eyes in the sky,” and is being tested by Quick Reaction Capability 1-Reaction 1, the only unit using the aircraft in Iraq. (U.S. Army photo by Spc.

That’s because scientists planned to smash subatomic particles together in that hidden laboratory to recreate the “big bang” that spawned the universe. A handful of doomsdayers worried the researchers might instead create a miniature black hole.
