I will preface this by stating the MAY have exposed something. I dont know for sure and want your opinions.

Here is a link to the story: www.popsci.com...

But they dont show the picture in question there though.

In this months issue they do a write up on the upcoming battle between UAV's and manned aircraft such as the F22. They focus on the new X47 thats in developement.

If you have a hard copy of the magazine, in one photo they show a picture of the X47 mock up in front of an open hangar. Inside the hangar on the left is a Global Hawk. But way in the back just to the right of the X47 mockup is another drone of some sort. Somewhat hidden but clearly there. The lighting almost makes in blend into its surroundings. Very sleek looking and two narrow air intakes on either side of the nose.

I have no idea what it is and I am wondering if they made an error in showing it. Has Popsci outed a secret UAV? Or is it something we already know about?

Anybody have the current issue and want to comment, let me know.
