    Is it?  The article states its a civilian vehicle, not military. Not sure what civilian uses one would find for an X-37 type vehicle.

    Displayed at Army 2020 but no pics released....    Sad

    Info is too scant, and TBH we've heard all this before, but hopefully its on the level.  Ideally it would be a revision of the Kliper concept as a replacement for the venerable (but now dated) Soyuz crew vehicle.  Too much to hope for?  Maybe, but if you asked me 1 year ago if Russia would have a program for a nuclear-powered interplanetary tug and a mission to Moon/Venus/Jupiter in 2030 I'd probably have rolled my eyes and laughed...
