Talarion Project in Jeopardy EADS Warns It May Freeze Drone Program

European aerospace and defense giant EADS is warning that, in addition to the problems it is having with its A400M military transport plane program, it may soon reconsider plans for the Talarion drone. If Germany, France and Spain do not commit orders and funding by summer, the program may be suspended.
French soldiers prepare to launch an unmanned observation drone to monitor Taliban activity in Afghanistan. European aerospace giant EADS says it may have to scrap its own plan to build a drone if France, Germany and Spain don't place orders by summer.
