Reaper Drones Specializes in Espionage and Surgical Strikes, So why have them in Seychelles ??



AFRICOM photo shows mystery Reaper payload in Seychelles

US Africa Command yesterday released the photo above of the MQ-9 Reaper returning to its new Seychelles base after an anti-piracy mission on November 4.

The photo shows a payload under the wing that I am unable to identify. I believe it is a signals intelligence sensor of some kind. It could also be just a fuel tank.

Or, maybe even a wide area camera, assuming there's a lens on the bottom of that thing. Click on the image to see the full-size picture.

I have emailed AFRICOM's public affairs office, asking them to identify the payload. I'm not optimistic that I'll get a useful response.

In the meantime, what do you guys -- think?

The "thing" in the front(midships) is the plane's eyes as there is no cockpit. The other thing hanging under the starboard wing can be a fuel tank as well as a missile. Whatever it is, the one on port side is missing. Maybe it fell off over Somalia? If so, we'll soon see it being converted to a skiff. ;-)

Oule dir mwan fighter pilot dreamer JP pa konnen. Pann aprann idantifye lenmi ek zot payload dan dalian flight university. Fyi it is a fuel tank. Not any espionage tool or missile like you are trying to lead us to beleive.

Jean Paul you are such a phoney ( ask ToTof Cherie what that means) someone whose English is as bad as yours could have hardly studied beyond NYS or S3. Do us all a favour and go back to school and learn how to write basic but concise ( ask Totof gros gate lakrem what this word means) English. Guess Totof Gill feels less threatened having someone of your calibre as his number two. You remind me of Laurel and Hardy !!!
