I can't say on the new classified UAVs but I believe the x-45 had an air to air tacan system on board. Not 100% sure though. Early testing was done
with a Lear 35 jet with an onboard pilot. No cameras were used on the x-45. Keep in mind that with the 45 and 47 we never got closer than 50 feet from
each other. They didn't have receptacles for refueling. There are a couple RQ aircraft that do though
Yeh I understand what you are saying but as I posted a while back it's still interesting to see what some companies think about when developing
new(ish) tech.. I thought it was interesting. Isn't BAE technically a international company ? Considering they have their fingers in a lot of pies ?

Yes its possible it can serve to cooperate with US company on futur projects , there is no doubt RAF will be the first Air force in Europe for sure,
Bae is a very inovative company just asking the government giving more money on new Aerospace projects.
