TR-3 was a misinterpretation by William Scott (who wrote reports regarding the supposed Black Manta) of Tier III, an ambitious USAF program for a stealthy and large high-altitude UAV that evolved from the CIA's canceled Quartz program, and which was eventually split into the Tier II+ and Tier III- Minus programs that led to the RQ-4 and RQ-3 respectively. The book "Weapons of the 21st Century" by Bill Yenne (published in 1993) even claimed on page 65 that the supposed TR-3 was first tested by Northrop in 1981 based on the Tactical High Altitude Penetrator concept, but without supporting evidence.
