Default Stealthy Drone Has Double The F-35's Attack Range

Okay Russia and China hold off on war till this new drone is operational in 2024

This is why they pay drone pilots $75,000 a year and big bonus's too

The Navy will launch formal flight testing in 2021 for a new, first-of-its kind carrier-launched drone engineered to double the attack range of F-18 fighters, F-35Cs and other carrier aircraft.
Say to yourself, "Self did I just read that right"? Double the attack range

Quote:
The emerging Navy MQ-25 Stingray program, to enter service in the mid-2020s, will bring a new generation of technology by engineering a new unmanned re-fueler for the carrier air wing.

"The program expects to be in flight test by 2021 and achieve initial operational capability by 2024," Jamie Cosgrove, spokeswoman for Naval Air Systems Command, told Warrior Maven.

-1 for National Interest. So it's a tanker. So what? It's not special except for the fact it's unmanned. How does it compare to other tankers in service with regards to fuel capacity, because that's what really matters.
