The GAV(R)-3 Pterosaur began as an urgent requirement for the Imperial Shirerithian Air Forces for a long-range, high altitude, reconnaissance air platform when it became apparent that the only aircraft in the ISAF inventory capable of undertaking long-range photo-reconnaissance missions was the slow, loud and lumbering ESB Spiegelflügel-Taube.

The Pterosaur, designed and manufactured by the Red Bear LLC was to combine the gravimetric engine seamlessly into an airframe that was developed using technology salvaged from an abandoned programme to reverse engineer the F-35 stealth fighter.
