There is o one UAV
a reply to: Zaphod58


erm. rephrase?

Are the RQ-180 and P-AEA separate birds?

And what's the supposed Boeing bird that Sweetman was claiming already 'won' the UCLASS?

I know there are plenty of pictures out there (just google em) but I wonder if the X47a and X47b have roles in this family of systems?

The RQ-180 is interesting. I've only ever seen concept art from I think an Aviation Weekly cover from a couple years ago?

Either way, it might be interesting to research anything related to the RCO - I have a feeling they are pretty damned buttoned up though...

Zaph will have to correct me but I believe so.

I must have missed that, I didn't see Boeing linked to the UCLASS referenced in the linked article. I think what was said is that Boeing has invested more in stealth tech than LM during the time period of that article. Which stands to reason since they have bigger coffers and will need to bring it's A-game to compete in future competitions with LM and NG.

Boeing supposedly 'winning' the UCLASS/RAQ-25 ahead of time is something Sweetman opined back in February.

Sweetman has some opinions that aren't worth the single ply toilet paper they sell in cheap truck stops.

OK. There was an information "leak" that was deliberately used to cover the existence of a UAV that everyone but me it seems has forgotten about.

Is that clearer? Heh.

Wichita?

P-AEA or stealth AWACS. Although, why not both? A VVLO aircraft whose entire leading and trailing edge is comprised of a powerful AESA array can probably do some pretty interesting things.

I really don't know much about it. I'm still digging into it myself. I know it exists, and the mission, and that's about it.

No, it's an ISR aircraft.

This aircraft have realy a SCI/FI look with this triangular shape what kind of mission it have it look awesome , I would love to see it on the ground for sure. So for instance in speculation we have RQ-180, Lrsb-B, and a mystery Wichita triangle, for me it start to be exciting and the years to come very interesting for a hobbyist like me

this whole last page of this thread reminds me of this:


Costello: You know the fellows' names?
Abbott: Yes.
Costello: Well, then who's playing first?
Abbott: Yes.
Costello: I mean the fellow's name on first base.
Abbott: Who.
Costello: The fellow playin' first base.
Abbott: Who.
Costello: The guy on first base.
Abbott: Who is on first.
Costello: Well, what are you askin' me for?
Abbott: I'm not asking you--I'm telling you. Who is on first.
Costello: I'm asking you--who's on first?
Abbott: That's the man's name.
Costello: That's who's name?
Abbott: Yes.
Costello: When you pay off the first baseman every month, who gets the money?
Abbott: Every dollar of it. And why not, the man's entitled to it.
Costello: Who is?
Abbott: Yes.
Costello: So who gets it?
Abbott: Why shouldn't he? Sometimes his wife comes down and collects it.
Costello: Who's wife?
Abbott: Yes. After all, the man earns it.
Costello: Who does?
Abbott: Absolutely.
Costello: Well, all I'm trying to find out is what's the guy's name on first base?
Abbott: Oh, no, no. What is on second base.
Costello: I'm not asking you who's on second.
Abbott: Who's on first!

If you make a reflection about the page it's easy to understand why it is like it , we have a chance to have little or tiny informations about our passionate aircraft, sometime ago we don't discuss anything because WE the simple hobbyist has nothing to know about a category of aircraft, so personaly I say thank you to the guy's who give us some little thing

It's a $100B+ contract, of course they protested. They'd get lynched if they didn't.
