Boeing Phantom Ray

Here is the Boeing Phantom Ray.A Unmanned Combat Air Vehicle(UCAV). It will have its first flight very soon.Sometime in December

Boeing funds it themselves.So there is no aim for any programs ,such as the X-45 was with the DARPA,USAF,and J-UCAS

They based it off the two drones they built earlier the two X-45s.Which flew its first flight May 22, 2002.The wingspan of the Phantom Ray is 50 ft, while its length is 36 ft .Its max speed = Mach 0.85 ,so it cruises abit above 610mph this data may change

I think the tests well prove very useful in hunter/killer testing .I am sure like the X-45s these well work together well and be very conservative like it.


Have a good day
