For the second time in a short span people have seen one of the US military’s newest drones being transported by truck and thought they were witnessing a UFO in transit. No folks it is just the X-47B, a carrier launched stealth drone that is still in the testing phase. Should it eventually join the fleet on active duty it would mark a milestone finally achieved for the US Navy because while the air force has had stealth capabilities for literally decades the navy has been left with conventional aircraft to get the job done. This would be a serious upgrade for the navy greatly increasing their reconnaissance and strike capabilities. Since the US Navy will be in the lead in confronting China this is also something they can’t afford to be without.
