yeah...just thinking the same thing...since everyone assumes its manned.
The Predator & Global Hawk have that "bump" on the top, for the satellite dish. Also as long as it isn't built for secret spy mission then they
could change its color to what ever they want just to help signify where its at. Or "mix and match" parts, like for instance: you have 2 Gloabal
Hawk and one has enigne problems so its down, while the other is fine but a bird strike cracks it so they might use the one from the one on the ground
since it isn't using it.
I think it looks most like the Global Hawk or Predator B, but its differences are for pupose...It has a delta wing config for speed, unlike Global
Hawk which has long wings for slower speeds and better endurance. Also its obviously unmanned because it has that little pod below it, for the
cameras and whatnot. So I would say its a supersonic UCAV.
