UCAV and Eye in the Sky

So, I was just casually playing on your average ranked server when I wanted to change the gadgets on my support class. Normal, right?
I thought so, too.

What was abnormal was that I saw an additional item in the gadgets list, under C4, labelled "UCAV". The description read something along the lines of
"Unmanned Combat Aerial Vehicle which can be deployed by the support class as guided ordnance." Unlocked via "Eye(s) in the Sky", which I assume is an assignment.

Thing is, there is no record of that assignment anywhere on Battlelog, and a quick Google search came up blank.
Is the UCAV a BF4 Premium item? Is it yet to be released? Where does the assignment come from?

Someone please explain (because the UCAV sounds awesome).

It is a china-rising gadget. If you haven't noticed yet, 2 gadgets and 5 weapons were accidentally spoiled today with the patch.


Thew weapons can be unlocked by completing the appropriate achievements.


The requirements for the two gadget achievements are, to my knowledge, presently unknown. Some people are guessing that they are tied to the china rising maps.

i believe the UCAV and possibly the SUAV also tied to currently unavailible game modes, ie air superiority. the boys over at symthic.com have confirmed there are game files in this latest patch relating to air superiority. also hinting at some other possible gadgets like a rappel rifle and the SWORD bot with mounted m249
