    The Navy wants to change the Pentagon imposed designation of its RAQ-25 carrier-based unmanned aerial tanker with its own nom-de-drone – Stingray.

    References to the RAQ-25 Stingray unmanned aerial vehicles (UAV) are found throughout draft written testimony submitted to Congress ahead of Department of the Navy budget hearings next week, several sources confirmed to USNI News.

    I like it. Especially if it ends up looking like the X-47B where it actually looks like a stingray

    Stingray is a good name, it is a dangerous animal and it looks like this UAV. It looks a little bit like a spear also so that could be an ok name. I think the people using it should give it a name.
