The Aesir Hoder cargo UAS. Rather weird concept, probably aimed at a USMC resupply requirement.

To be precise, it is the model of the Airbus/Hamburg university AC 20.30 used as the illustration in the post about the second Barracuda. The photo itself is not related with the UCAVs in any way. Interesting that the model does not have the engines.

Looks like a (defunct) AVPRO design...

A model of that size would be of no use aerodynamically to a real program
hmm...not that I don't believe to aerodynamicist, but then what, for example, Dassault did then with their Petit Duc?
