To be fair we've got 2-3 Zephyr built/on the way for the MoD. Probably more HAPS than anyone else.

Sorry missed this.

Yes ordered 3 in 2016. One of the ones that crashed in Australia in 2019 was one of the MoD ones (although it sounded like it might be repairable, but no news whatsoever since). The other one was an Airbus owned example that was trialling some connectivity solutions for Facebook.
