U.S. military officials have announced that they’ve carried out their largest ever test of a drone swarm released from fighter jets in flight. In the trials, three F/A-18 Super Hornets released 103 Perdix drones, which then communicated with each other and went about performing a series of formation flying exercises that mimic a surveillance mission.

I understand surveillance for now -but since they are not intended to be recovered why not attach some C-4 to each drone? Boom, boom, boom x 100... or thousand?
