With the Sentinel's existence now confirmed, that raises the inevitable question: what else does the Air Force (DoD) have that we don't know about.
I guess that confirms it for the Kandahar base which is interesting to then consider how long it may have been operating there with out drawing attention with a day light photo till now.
At Kandahar, the Sentinel was seen operating out of General Atomics Aeronautical Systems' hangar.

Alleged patent drawings here.
Note, that the drawings show no signs of the visible sensor pods above the wings.
The Distributed Common Ground System (DCGS) primarily works with U-2 Dragon Lady surveillance-reconnaissance aircraft and MC-12s, along with MQ-1, MQ-9, RQ-4 Global Hawk, and RQ-170 Sentinel RPAs.
