Stealth programs have always been something that is left unknown to most people in the country until it is important that they are known about, but one of the most recent revelations has been one of the most interesting.
Aviation Week reported that there was a new radar-evading spy drone in the works, but now the Air Force has officially released a statement saying that this is true. With a 130 foot wingspan, this is one of the larger drones, but it is also the most stealthy that we have available. According to the reports, the Air Force invested billions of dollars into the program by Northrop Grumman and a flying prototype has already been developed.
Should it see mass production, it is going to be used to defend air space in places like North Korea and Iran, where there is always a concern about the safety of surrounding countries. Iran has already gotten their hands on one of the drones, after it crashed in the country in 2010, but so far there is no reason to think that the entire system has been copied.
This is the first time that we have had official confirmation and it will likely be the only thing that we know for a long time.
