General Atomics Aeronautical Systems is teasing a new air-launched effect, a part of a growing portfolio of in-development drones that it plans to launch from its MQ-9A Reaper and MQ-1C Gray Eagle unmanned air vehicles (UAVs).

The company released a digital rendering of two UAVs flying slightly behind an MQ-9 in a promotional tweet for the Special Operations Forces Industry Conference on 19 May. The small unmanned aircraft appears to be propeller-driven and have a v-tail.

General Atomics confirmed to FlightGlobal that the pictured UAVs are so-called air-launched effects, meaning a type of drone designed to launch from other aircraft or UAVs.
