US is already testing a ‘secret’ aircraft to combat Russia’s S-400 systems [video]

WASHINGTON, (BM) – The US military began to test new secret planes over the Mojave Desert, which, according to the America’s The Drive magazine, could be an ideal adversary for an equally effective Russian air defense system, learned BulgarianMilitary.com.

According to the magazine’s publication, such aircraft previously appeared in the frames of ordinary photographers. However, they managed to see full-fledged tests only a few days ago, which obviously indicates that the military from the United States came close to flight tests of the prototype, not to mention that the first samples of such aircraft may appear within 3-5 years.

“In the United States over the Mojave desert [California], tests of top-secret aircraft systems are being conducted, which can make it invulnerable to Russian missiles. We are talking about two aircraft, Model 401 and Proteus, which were in the sky with the F-15D NASA fighter and the KC-10 air tanker. On the tail of the Model 401, obscure rhombuses are visible [possibly a hidden radar or some sensors], and a certain electro-optical system was installed on the Proteus” the magazine said.

Journalists of the publication believe that both aircraft were in unmanned flight or controlled by NASA’s F-15D, Russian media reported citing The Drive.

If the arguments of the journalists are correct, then the tests may indicate that the United States is close to creating a sixth generation combat aircraft, since the latter are positioned as unmanned aerial vehicles with all the capabilities of full-fledged fighters.
