Just a new rendering of what I personally like as an ECM/Recon
craft that MAY HAVE been accompanying the F22 in Africa:



or THIS more triangular configuration:



Which I think personally is the CLOSEST to what
the Manta (or whatever its name) truly looks like:

(multimage composites by HAE)

P.S.
I would EXPECT that Zaphod58 would know more about whether my Quick and Dirty
renders are close enough to the real thing since he HAS quite the heavy experience in
Unmanned Air Systems and Electronic Warfare Development mostly on the business
technical management side (i.e. LMCO) from what I understand!

(if my industry info is correct that is...)

P.S.2. Love the Indago Quadcopter - I want one of those!!!

I think it's the x-47c. Or what used to be the x-47c.

I'm going to go ahead and say that's pretty close, minus a few key features, from what I've seen. I think we'll all be seeing more of this aircraft and pretty soon. Sooner than previously thought.

Im going to say the bottom craft with the following fixes:

Twin engines are farther apart of course in the real craft and the cockpit is not not so long...of course im missing the inward pointing small tailfins...forgot to add those in...plus the rear triangular tail isnt as pronounced
As my version...i will make a more accurate rendering tomorrow

Aren't we likely looking at an unmanned airframe?

I think your F22 companion is closer to this:

You'll soon get the hang of it...aside from a misquote your posts are quite enlightening..
When you said from "what you've seen" in your prior post relating to triangles could you elaborate?

I'd be happy you. If you spend enough time out in the desert north and east of LA heading along the Nevada state line and separately north of Los Vegas you too will be treated to some interesting things. Seeing a Pegasus drone before it had a name was pretty fun. However it's not all out west - I was once hiking in New Hampshire, slept open out on a knob and witnessed a triangle slowly cruise right past me. I've got lots of stories!

Boomer, any friends from the 157th ARW seen anything interesting up there?

....Which reminds me. Shouldn't she be coming home soon?

From what I've heard all the activity at Edwards is related. They've essentially cleared out the aux base for her. I'd put good money on seeing something very interesting over that way very soon.

That came out of the 81 RFI that eventually led to the ATF comp.

Hehe...it looks like a boomerang. It reminds me of a mix between that proposed TELOS and a B2.

Yes I know. But striking resemblance to something a bit more current, no?

Yeah, it does. I wonder if that makes it australian.
It's about as big as a B-2 too.

Here is a pic of it at a trade show somewhere:

I bet the computer systems on board to keep that thing stable are pretty amazing...

it would be so spooky to see a bird that big up close with no windows on it..it's got a cool factor of 10.
