Looking (to me) like a dog carrying a ball, this Diamond DA-42-MPP Twin Star is one of the very latest surveillance aircraft. It can be configured to be flown normally, or as an unmanned drone. It is already in use with a number of military operators, including the RAF. Its main tool of trade is the Wescam MX15 electro-optical camera fitted to the nose.
