X-47B Joint Unmanned Combat Air System

Northrop Grumman has begun construction of the first X-47B designed to be deployed from both aircraft carriers and land bases. The stealth plane will also be capable of automatic aerial refueling. Designed for both persistent surveillance and reconnaissance as well precision attacks on ground targets, design based on the plane should begin entering service early in the next decade.
