the issue of acting as a bearer/node has been discussed in here in the forum in the past, and the trend on using them as kamikaze assets has been an ISIS construct for the last few years

Once you start using drones as kamikaze assets, where's the line between them and say, TLAMs? Sure cruise missiles have much more capability, but a drone packed with explosives that is crashed into a target is essentially a prop-driven missile or a flying bomb. If remotely piloted not very different from early TV guided ordnance either.

They are essentially tactical PGMs.

in contemporary terms, ISIS have had a running POC for the last 2 years - granted its only getting air time in the public arena now, but their use of low cost COTS UAS as PGMs as well as a weapons bearers has caused problems for vehicle convoys where they will direct them on to any vehicle with an exposed operator - such as weapons handler

(they've also harnessed 3D printers to make cheap grenade release carriers)
