U.S. Navy Procuring Three More MQ-25 Unmanned Aerial Refueler From Boeing

via Naval News.
“We’re honored to have the Navy’s confidence in our system design and performance that is evident from this additional order. This order establishes uninterrupted production of the first MQ-25 aircraft and lines up with the Navy’s MQ-25 test and training plans for fleet introduction. The MQ-25 program is vital in ensuring the Navy can deliver a critical unmanned aerial refueling capability to the carrier air wing.”

Dave Bujold, Boeing’s MQ-25 program director

Boeing Defense is an undercover success story.  Partnering with the Navy has turned into a big deal (along with the Australian Air Force) and they are gonna be filling the skies not only with advanced Super Hornets but also with the MQ-25, which I predict will be flexed into both an ISR and a light attack/missile truck (interim) in the near term.

That's not counting the work being done with the Australian Air Force on their unmanned wingman program that has the attention of the USN, USMC and USAF.

Boeing Defense.  Wonder if I can buy stock in just that part of the company or if its all under the Boeing umbrella?  If they pop it out then BD is a huge buy opportunity right now.
