It is a new design. Subject to funding, it was due to be demonstrated last year, but it seems not.

I am happy to supply a coloured artist impression of it "in the flesh".

VTOL

A Northrop design?

Good afternoon David,

That's the Lockheed Martin SkunkWorks UCAV Concept for the the medium-range, multi-role unmanned aircraft system (MRMUAS) Competition for the US Navy. ??

Sorry, but it'll have to be an Open House if it's correct, as I'm busy all afternoon

Edit: Thanks for PM, well done
