New image of mystery UAV in Afghanistan

2nd December 2009 - 06:58 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


A new and more detailed image of the mystery UAV operating in Afghanistan has come to light.

In April this year, UVOnline broke the story of an advanced but as yet undisclosed UCAV programme operating out of a coalition airbase in the country after being shown pictures of the aircraft taxiing at its base.

Now the French blog 'Secret Defense' has published a new and significantly more detailed picture of the aircraft showing the aircraft from side-on revealing its blended wing/body design and what maybe an open weapons bay.

The question is why such an aircraft is operating from Afghanistan and so publicly in daylight.

An artist’s impression of the aircraft can be viewed by clicking here.
