The Gray Eagle is already an existing airframe, so you wonder why they have to test them at Plant 42. It could be for the ER (Extended Range) version. Here is a bit of the request at fbo dot gov:


The Air Force Test Center (AFTC), Directorate of Contracting, Edwards AFB, CA is seeking sources who are capable of providing for lease (rental) of one (1) Mobile Restroom Trailer (unit) to be delivered to Air Force Plant 42 (AFP 42), located in Palmdale, California. The mobile restroom unit shall be installed at AFP 42 near the temporary offices/operations facilities set-up for the U.S. Army Gray Eagle Test Program.

Note that you take your OSINT where you can get it, be that a restroom request.

Top secret toilets?

When you have to go, it's on a need to know.

FWIW, all Gray Eagle drones will be the ER version. They shut down the line for other variants.

This doesn't explain why they are at Plant 42.

The last time I poked around the General Atomics facilities in the Mojave, the El Mirage facility was dedicated to the Gray Eagle.

It seems odd, even fishy, that they would provide details about any program in situations like this. Wouldnt a simple RFQ be enough? Or something as simple as the below example

"(1) Mobile Restroom Trailer (unit) to be delivered to Air Force Plant 42 (AFP 42), located in Palmdale, California. The mobile restroom unit shall be installed at AFP 42 near the temporary offices/operations facilities set-up to accommodate additional personnel needs."

Not saying it's intentional false information, but it does make me question what additional aircraft might fall under U.S. Army Gray Eagle Test Program (or true program name)? 1 mobile #ter isn't much, I can't see it being a large increase in staff. Doesn't seem like enough for a separate aircraft, so I'm guessing a small group of specialized contractors testing some new sensor/software package on the platform?

Based on this document, that facility would support 270 people. Now that number of people on the flightline is ridiculous. But it may be that the crew gets a break at the same time.

Would this have anything to do with the silver fox/ Silver fang program?
