so it looks like the first MQ-25 got delivered and seem to be on track.

not really to much else to add but they sure got it out there in a reasonable amount of time.

there are a few videos embedded in the link.

i saw an interview with some pilots in the US military regarding the reliance more and more on drones and that it is getting hard to find people to train on them apparently. From a very very early age i loved the idea of me being a military aviator, the idea of flying some really amazing aircraft was very alluring. i can see where potential up and coming recruits wanting to fly the aircraft themselves opposed to sitting in a room on the ground.

They just got their EMD contract this summer. They'll probably have their first test article/first flight this summer or fall. Long way to OTE yet. I haven't even heard anything on CDR. Probably four or five years away from IOC fleet operations if every thing goes well.
