Scaled Composites Model 396

[galleryview id=133 ]

Introduction
The Scaled Composites Model 396 is a derivative of the Northrop Grumman RQ-4 Global Hawk aircraft. The Model 396 will be an unmanned combat air vehicle, and thus will differ from the Global Hawk in carrying a weapons load underneath the fuselage. It will also be about half the size and cost, but will be aerodynamically identical. The Model 396 was competing for USAF’s Hunter-Killer program, however the aircraft was rejected in favor of the MQ-9 Reaper.
