The Israeli military is developing a large, classified unmanned air vehicle (UAV) with features consistent with stealthy aircraft designs, according to a knowledgable source.
The secret project involves a "fairly large" UAV in development by Israel Aerospace Industries (IAI), the maker of the non-stealthy Heron and Eitan (which is called the Heron TP for export) UAVs, the source says.
Israel has been openly involved with stealth and minimal-detection programmes. Experts familiar with Israeli industry profess little surprise in a low-observable aircraft capability.

A "knowledgeable source" has told Flight Global that IAI is currently working on a large stealthy UAV. There are no real details about it, but several sources have said that it only makes sense that they are developing stealth systems for themselves.
What's interesting is that IAI recently said they were going smaller, cheaper, and faster.
