Kratos Defense has plans to build more than just its Firejet and Valkyrie unmanned aircraft in Oklahoma City.

Speaking to a downtown Rotary Club last week, Kratos Senior Vice President Jeff Herro said all of the company's tactical drones will be manufactured in Oklahoma City.

Kratos builds two kinds of unmanned aerial vehicles for military use — the target drone and the tactical drone.
