The Lyrics

The joint German/Spanish UAV/UCAV Barrakuda was started in 2006 as a competitor for the international market of UAVs and UCAVs. After intitial flight testing the first prototype crashed in the sea. However, two more prototypes were built in 2008 and the program resumed with EADS proposing a modular version OR an armed UCAV with weapons loaded into the payload bay. More suscessful flights and by 2009 to compete with the French/Swedish nEUROn, EADS proposed twin engines and more armament. The Barrakuda is made almost entirely of carbon fiber composite and has attained Mach 0.85 on one engine. It can carry a 300 kg load of sensors OR weapons but the larger version planned will be more of a rival to US designs than European. The program is proceeding slow due to EADS development of other UCAV designs and a stealth missile...
German/Spanish UAV with weapons (cap)ability
UCAV is still some time away
More test runs, mods against rival (nEUROn)
In trials, it once failed

But the development proceeds
To meet most international needs
Modular versions, EADS is still pleased
UCAV is new! Barrakuda! Hunting you!!!

New popularity against world enemies
Twin-engine version to compete
Armament with various mods
To the payload bay

Military appeal will do the trick
World UCAV needs are growing quick
The Barrakuda design is so slick, slick, slick
Oh, Barrakuda! Need ya!!!

So far it makes a great testbed
Against nEUROn when all is said
It’s close to breaking Mach too (0.85)
300 kg payload in tests
The program is on track
Carbon fibre tech makes it so cool, cool, cool

Military appeal will do the trick
World UCAV needs are growing quick
The Barrakuda design is so slick, slick, slick
Oh, Barrakuda! Need ya!!!
