Not to mention in the second to the last set of photos there are callouts for "classified sensor" between the tail fins. And there's a star-tracker aperture on the upper fuselage.

Would that be for star-based navigation for GPS-denied areas? I'd bet $20 that a Hollywood prop designer didn't come up with that idea. But the Navy has been working on the tech for a high-altitude, high-mach-number UAV project since 2008. (Link below)
