Heck of a nice picture!

Well, that does correspond nicely with the "punmpkin seed" aircraft utilizing external pulse detonation that so many have theorized upon over the years. Now, I'm not saying as a result that this was built and is being hidden at A51. It's just interesting that some company thought it a reasonable enough to conduct testing with an RCS model. And, even at that, there are RCS models from years past laying in the weeds today that led absolutely nowhere.

Ironically, I've seen a couple of pics of a very similar shape mounted atop the Groom RCS pole in some of the threads over at ATS recently.
