Pioneer RPV on USS Wisconsin

During Operation Desert Storm, unmanned aerial vehicles (UAV) were used to spot targets for the battleships.  On February 23rd, 1991, Wisconsin sent its drone to do a low surveillance over Faylaka Island.  The Iraqi soldiers recognized this sign that they were once again being targeted by the battleships and created makeshift white flags to indicate their surrender and spare their lives.
