Interstate XBQ-4/TDR-1
The 1943 NAF TDN was an maned or unmanned, radio-controlled, tv-directed torpedo drone. They carried ordnance loads up to a ton of bombs or torpedoes and was controlled from a "mother" aircraft in its vicinity or from ships at sea. It was able to release its weapons or be flown directly into the target.
One hundred were built and although never used in combat, it proved its value in experiments, as well as a target drone for ships' gunners.
They were also built in modified configuration by Interstate as XBQ-4/TDR-1.
