I find it interesting that the USN chose to go with a refueling mission for their first aircraft carrier drone aircraft.  I would have thought fighter or bomber.  I am wondering if they are hoping to eventually build off the same platform for other missions.

Looks like the Modelcollect B-52H is getting close.  Also looks like they are going to correct some flaws from the B-52G.

Story here claims that the Chinese have the engine problems on their J-20 fixed.  I’ll believe it when I see it.
