Lockheed Martin unveils its TR-X
Above you see the LM proposal to replace both the U-2 and the Global Hawk. I find that interesting. The Global Hawk has barely entered service and already planning is underway to replace it. Has a critical flaw in its concept been discovered? Is the USAF so worried about operations even in uncontested airspace that a stealth UAV is necessary?
We're being told something with this initiative (LM wouldn't be proposing something if they didn't see a market for it) but I'm not sure what.
