Boeing Defense said that it will reveal a new aircraft Tuesday that will change the future of air power.
“Robust? Check. Ready? Check. Changing future air power?” Boeing tweeted along with a black cloth-covered image of the new craft. “Check it out! See the reveal 12/19!
Changing future air power? Check it out!

Boeing remains tight-lipped about exactly when and where the plane will be unveiled on Tuesday, claiming “everything will be revealed later.”
The upswept wings don’t match the angle of those in concept images of Boeing’s Phantom Swift, but full development may have led to the change or the craft may be another Phantom derivative.
It could be the final version of the “Bird of Prey” concept that was announced in 2002 and then a technology demonstrator video was released in 2009.
