The Bird of Prey was used to develop technolgy with applications for future fighters, recon platforms, and UAVs. You can see some of this technology
applied to Boeing's UCAV designs.
The Bird of Prey was never meant to be a viable system in and of itself. While it looked really cool, it had only marginal flying qualities. It had
just enough performance to provide the data required from the test program.
