The Boeing Airpower Teaming System, also known as the Loyal Wingman project, is a stealthy unmanned aerial vehicle in development, whose role will be to support manned Royal Australian Air Force aircraft, such as the F-35, F-18E/F, and E-7A Wedgetail. The UAV will be designed to act as a "loyal wingman" that is controlled by a parent aircraft to accomplish tasks such as scouting, or absorb enemy fire if attacked. The aircraft will be the first designed and developed in Australia in over half a century, (with the notable exception of the Nomad and GA8 Airvan) but Boeing has said that it will "depend on the market" whether the aircraft is manufactured in Queensland or the United States.
