Boeing X-45A UCAV (2001)
About the Design
By the early 21st Century, computer and satellite technology had advanced far enough to permit the creation of powerful and reliable remote-controlled combat drones, otherwise known as UCAVs (Unmanned Comat Aerial Vehicles). Boeing's X-45A was one of the first jet-powered UCAVs to the revealed to the public. Essentially a demonstration vehicle, the X-45A made its first successful test flight on May 22, 2002, reaching a speed of 195 knots and an altitude of 7,500 feet.
About the Kit
The Boeing X-45A was the first of more than a half-dozen UCAV designs kitted by Unicraft during the early 2000s. Although the plane was highly accurate in many respects, construction still required some improvisation on the part of the builder, particularly in the addition of the nose spike.
This model was build from an original issue.
