“UCLASS is dead, but the money that was appropriated by Congress in the line is still usable,” says Vice Adm Joseph Mulloy, deputy chief of naval operations for integration of capabilities and resources. “We headed to Congress and talked to all the lawyers.”

A multi-mission tanker is certainly not what Congress was expecting to come from the defence secretary’s top-level intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance portfolio review, especially after successful ship-based demonstrations of the low-observable Northrop Grumman X-47B unmanned combat air vehicle.

I hope they talked very thoroughly with the lawyers because that's, errr, verboten as a rule. Also, hopefully they convinced the committee, because that seems like a good way to not have multiple projects funded in your next budget.

The Navy is getting as bad as the Army and Air Force.

The Army announced they were going to try to accelerate the light scout portion of the FLV, because they need a light scout, after eliminating their light scouts to use gunships for the mission.

The annual GAO report is out. The RFP will drop early FY17 and the award made early FY18 with introduction in 2020.
