The million dollar question for the Boeing MQ-25 is it's RCS??? In short how stealthy is it???



Personally, I still think the Lockheed Martin contender had far more potential.....

Why Does Boeing's MQ-25 Prototype Look So Stealthy? [EARLIER: viewtopic.php?f=55&t=20468&p=384988&hilit=Warwick#p384988 ]
03 Jan 2018 Graham Warwick in Ares

"...Boeing’s MQ-25 design may have acquired its stealth features when it was UCLASS, and retained its shape through the many study phases that led up to the final CBARS RFP. It may be a bet placed by Boeing that the Navy, once it gets the Stingray on its carrier decks, will want to evolve the aircraft from an unmanned tanker to a surveillance/strike asset that needs stealth...."
