Is there any relation to the Grumman Albatross https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Grumman_HU-16_Albatross ?
Or just very long wings, similar also to the bird with this name?

Oooo ... anything like Denel's swoopy Bateleur MALE UAV?

Absolutely killer, Carl!

Totally believable and one of the best Magister conversions I've seen come down the pike in a long time!

Ooooooh wow, that looks perfect! Inspired!

Also as soon as I see Denel or Atlas in a title I get excited as the South Africans come up with some very cool hardware. This will fit right in.
