Didn't notice this before. Just as with the rail going carrier target model displayed at Zhuhai this year, the model of the little UAV flattop turned out to result in the real thing.
I've seen one discussion about this ship and its company of drones around the same time that the land going carrier was being discussed. This thing has "blue force" in its name so likely the drones are intended to work as a team to simulate the electronic signature of a variety of targets out at sea.
Kind of reminds me of that one episode of Battlestar Galactica
