From this article it appears that's just what the US Navy has in mind. With seeing huge flocks of birds heading south for the winter this time of year, it's not hard to imagine what a swarm of drones might look like: it would look like the swarm of squidlike robots from The Matrix.

The ememy would really have to watch out for their droppings.
