"The U.S. Air Force is planning for two secretive new combat drones, Air Force Secretary Frank Kendall revealed during an interview with Politico at the Reagan National Defense Forum on Saturday.

Speaking from the sidelines of the forum, Kendall told the news outlet that the Air Force is seeking two new aircraft in the near future.

Ive got two that Im going to have in the 23 budget in some form, Kendall said. Theyre both unmanned air combat vehicles, unmanned platforms that are designed to work in conjunction with fighter aircraft like [the Next Generation Air Dominance fighter] or F-22 or the F-35. On the other hand they work in conjunction with bombers like the B-21.
