GA-ASI chasing Avenger sale to international customer
The potential deal could be a breakthrough for the slow-burning Avenger programme, which until now, only acknowledged the US Air Force operated a technology demonstrator since a public unveiling in 2009. This week, GA-ASI officials disclosed up to seven aircraft deliveries to an unnamed US government agency.
It was a candidate for the U.S. Navy Unmanned Carrier-Launched Airborne Surveillance and Strike (UClass) requirement, until that was modified. AIN was told that some were subsequently acquired by the CIA for covert operations where a faster transit time was required than the piston-powered MQ-1/9 Predator/Reaper UAVs

I'm not really sure you can call the "C" model a UCAV as its still in development. It also could be part of the entry into the USN's unmanned tanker bid aka MQ-25
