Maybe that is the future colour scheme for RAF fast jets? :D Do we have any idea as to what payload the UAV will have?

Very exciting news (albeit with a typo of Spain rather than Sweden).



Two takeaways:

1) Summer of next year seems earlier than expected and could suggest either a renewed impetus behind the programme or that things have been moving to maturity behind the scenes.

2) It wasn't clear if the Tempest parterners (IT/SE) were necessarily involved in LANCA/Mosquito/Vixen. This implies they are, alongside whatever tech development or potential manned platforms might come from it.
