    Thanks for posting Jura. I did not realize the USN was as far along in R &D on this aircraft.

    "Hellfire and Damnation" we got ourselves a "FREAKING FLYING GAS CAN!" aint that the "Shit's", they ought to make the damn thing stealthy while they're at it, give us some real reach off those carriers.... they need to keep the cost down as well, for those super long range "suicide missions" where the tanker flys out to meet those returning F-35s and drains the tanks of the MQ-25 to get the "manned bird" back to the boat!

    Nobody will be out of reach! remember "Fast just burns more GAS!" Stealth is the "Secret Sauce", yes I realize its NOT part of the official requirement, but it should be!
