The Pioneer RQ-2 Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV) served with the US Navy, Marine Corps, and Army from 1986 through 2007. The Pioneer was the premier UAV reconnaissance and surveillance system during the Gulf War of 1991. During Operation Desert Storm, Iraqi soldiers surrendered to Pioneer Air Vehicle 159, knowing that its presence meant they were targeted for certain destruction by Coalition forces. Air Vehicle 159 was officially inducted into the Smithsonian Institution's National Air and Space Museum on 3 October 2000.
