US Navy orders 3 additional MQ-25 Stingray refueling drones from Boeing

In A press release published Thursday, April 2, Boeing Defense announced that the US Navy had the option to order 3 new MQ-25 Stingray naval tanker drones, for $ 84,7 million. This order is part of the planned increase in production line capacities, as well as support for ongoing trials.
