Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Operating characteristics of the next generation of drones are classified but it appears they will have an operating ceiling of 70,000 feet, stealthed, and carry a fighter/bomber-equivalent weapon payload.

There's no technical reason they can't meet those design specifications and there's good operational reasons for the Air Force, etc., to issue them.  So I expect a "jump" in capability within the next 4 years.
