I still don't get how this doesn't get shot down, but whatever.

I play at EPGS on the 1st and 3rd Saturday of the month and if you live in Eastern PA, Western NJ or Northern DE ... you should too!

I'm guessing they are betting on three seperate ideas to keep it from getting shot down:

1) I bet it has a low radar signature.

2) It probable flies pretty high so it will be tough to see.

3) They will probably only deploy it in areas with low tech Anti-Aircraft defenses, think guys with rifles as opposed to Large SAMS and figther planes.

These are all guesses on my part.

Larger than a football field and seven stories high. I AM curious what the actual radar signature would be.
But indeed, like the AC130 a great tool, to be used when there's air superiority.

They paint "Goodyear" on the sides and it goes undercover.
