The engine looks similar to one of these, http://www.bmeengine.com/engines.htm scroll down the page and you'll see the twins. May not be A BME, but certainly bears a resemblance and there are a few companies out there that make these for large scale RC planes.

but It could be almost any gasser these high dollar militay project get some cool overpriced stuff

Just think about how many gasser helis you could buy and set up to do the same thing as that overpriced THING for $700k

I believe that UAV is designed for portable air-to-ground and air-to-air missle packs.

This system was recently highlighted on Future Weapons. The UAV pictured is deployed by a portable ground munitions system to monitor and identify the surrounding environment for enemy ground troops and/or mechanized equipment. This gives the system the ability to identify friend or foe and act accordingly so the good guys aren't compromised by advancing baddies.

$722,000 EACH

Man, Just feed people that is half the problem of fighting...people with full bellies don't fight much.

Yup, cause the parts just knew how to come together to make the above all by themselves.

Do you honestly think that everything you buy is priced just to cover the cost of the materials used in it?

R&D, manufacturing, logistics, support, etc... all play a part of that price. Plus how many have been made. If all those costs are rolled into one end product, easily 722K

Just some thoughts

Wait..what!?!?! No, that can't be!

Of course I don't (I was being sarcastic) but 722K for what? There has to be better ways than to spend almost 1 million for more war...or to prevent it as they say.

Come on, feed people, shelter, education...etc. etc etc.

There are many better ways to blow that money to prevent war.
