Stingers got you down?

Jumbo-jet sized ‘SuperGigaFly’ robo parachute tested • The Register

The record-breaking GigaFly, according to Airborne Systems, is capable of carrying a load of 19 tonnes safely down to land accurately within a few hundred metres of the desired impact point, even when dropped from 22,000 feet up and as far as 13 miles away.

For when you have a kilometer or two of secure, flat open space around your drop target, but still can’t land anything there. Hmmm.
