MQ-9 Reaper 1/32 The MQ-9 Reaper (originally the RQ-9 Predator B) is a medium-to- high altitude, long endurance remotely piloted aircraft system. It was developed by General Atomics Aeronautical Systems for use by the United States Air Force, United States Navy, and British Royal Air Force. "M" is the Department of Defense designation for multi-role, "Q" means unmanned aircraft system, and "9" refers to the series of purpose-built remotely piloted aircraft systems.
The Reaper's primary mission is as a persistent hunter-killer against emerging targets to achieve joint force commander objectives. Its alternate mission is to act as an intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance asset, employing sensors to provide real-time data to commanders and intelligence specialists at all levels.
The MQ-9 is a larger and more capable aircraft than the earlier MQ- 1 Predator, able to use the MQ-1's ground systems. The MQ-9 has a 950-shaft-horsepower turboprop engine, allowing it to carry 15 times more ordnance and cruise at thrice the speed of the MQ-1.
