The article shows a photo of a G-V "N22" (a registration that comes back as "reserved"). The exact same photo can be found in a 2015 article discussing Northrop developing a successor for the the JSTARS platform. The War Zone probably used an archive photos.

I assume the G-V in question is actually N99NG, a known Northrop test bed. That aircraft shows several recent flights in the NTTR. As you may recall it was also part of a mission that I recorded in 2019 over the NTTR. See attached link. Back then we speculated that it was an early test of some B-21 systems, and this article seems to confirm that. N99NG is definitely an aircraft to keep an eye on.
