Australia Selected General Atomics’ Reaper November 18, 2018

Australia’s Minister for Defence Hon Christopher Pyne, announced the selection of the General Atomics MQ-9 Reaper variant as Australia’s first armed remotely piloted aircraft system.

Minister Pyne said the medium altitude long endurance aircraft can be integrated within the Australian Defence Force (ADF) and would be fully interoperable with allies.

The Government will now request pricing and availability data from the United States on Reaper variants to support future decision-making on the acquisition.
