Now use your imagination and think of a ground based unit with similar capabilities. We are so fucked.

A ground-based unit is limited by its ability to move across terrain.

Short of a tornado/blizzard/sandstorm/hurricane, an air-based unit can easily move within its drones' flight range of the target and move out of enemy fire range without issue (especially if it has a logistics supply line nearby to refuel and repair/replace damaged drones).

As for "imagine how this could be made real", there are rumors of "weird flying black boxes hovering around Arab cities, and blowing up terrorists before disappearing", which suggests that the Saudis' GCC has some POWERFUL drone tech being used to wipe out the radical Islamic militant groups in the region (along with some other Spec Ops techniques that even the US has difficulty pulling off).

EMP blast, dude. That technology isn't very difficult to replicate.

My first thought. Too bad it's nothing like this, but maybe in the future it will be.

Aircraft carrier my ass, it's a fucking C-130. That isn't even close to an aircraft carrier.

If it carries aircraft is it not an aircarft carrier?

Were the star destroyers called spacecraft carriers?

You can take the wings off a C-130 and shove it in a C-5 to transport it, does that make a C-5 an aircraft carrier?

Just call it a drone carrier and call it a job done.

It's an aircraft that functions as a "drone carrier ", thus a "aircraft carrier".

They've had a wingmount pod for the F16 for 10 years with drone swarms. The f16 is an aircraft carrier.

Yo dawg, we heard you liked aircraft carriers, so we put an aircraft carrier on your aircraft carrier

The only threat from NK is their conventional artillery targeting Seoul. Take out the gun crews and they are impotent.

South Korea being turned into a parking lot would be a good thing. We should have let the japs keep it.

Go look at a night time map faggot, Seoul is one of, if not the most advanced cities on the planet. Samsung, KIA, etc. Seoul leveled with artillery means the second great depression, if we are lucky. Because they will shoot at China the minute they come under fire as a dying retaliation. They will not go down without taking China if not simply to save face before their capital is wiped off the face of the earth.

This guy military(s). The NKs are using old Japanese defensive artillery position techniques from WWII. Except they are trained on Seoul. Roll them out on the reverse of a mountain, shoot over the peak at Seoul, roll them back in to evade counter battery fire. That and long gun ports on the exposed portion of said mountains, that overlook Seoul. Those positions are whack a moles until we can fly into these positions and drone strike the crews directly. Once we can prove that capability the NK army forever more will be as effective as colonial troops transported ahead in time to our current time. Useless and impotent.

So basically this. -- Ever since seeing the video, I've been working on opencv-based micro drone weapons on the side, which have small ARM controllers on there, last about 8-10 minutes flight time, and are so cheap they could be mass produced. -- However the ones I'm working on require a target painter of some sort, as I'm unsure of current laws regarding AI-based weaponry.
