Description: The Marine Air Ground Task Force Unmanned Aircraft System-Expeditionary (MUX) is a new heavyweight unmanned air vehicle designed to meet the requirements of the US Marine Corps (USMC). The aircraft is expected to carry a payload of 9,500-pounds (4,800 kg) both internally and externally over ranges of 700 nautical miles (+1,200 kilometers) providing close air support. Besides, the MUX would be able to takeoff and landing vertically. The weapon options of the MUX would include the AGM-114 Hellfire, APKWS II laser-guided rockets, AGM-88E anti-radiation missiles, AIM-9X air-to-air missiles and a small UAV that will be delivered in-flight providing early warning (AEW) and electronic warfare (EW) capabilities. The USMC launched the MUX program in early 2018 with a maiden flight expected in 2025, first shipborne flight in 2028 and initial operational capability (IOC) slated for 2034.
