The manned aircraft will take control over a swarm of unmanned jets (up to six) carrying out a variety of missions. The drones may be equipped with a variety of weapons and sensors including high energy lasers. The PCA drone will be a tailless, high-speed, single-engine, low observable aircraft with internal weapons bay for a variety of air-to-air and air-to-surface bombs and missiles.
