Here is what Elizondo has said about the drones (from 1963, alienexpanse):
"And it is that according to Elizondo time is a big problem for the theory of drones, since UFOs fly for hours around ships. In addition, UFOs fly in adverse weather conditions and at night, another large handicap for drones. He even stressed that Navy ships have effective defence measures against such raids. Lue Elizondo concludes that the military authorities "They were called drones simply because they didn't want to say the word UAP, they didn't want to scare people (...) if you see lights in the sky you better write the word drone, don't write the word UAPS because it's going to be published and it's going to be a bad day for us with the press." The expert does not hesitate to point out that: "We are not dealing with drones at all. They're not drones, we have no idea what they are." Elizondo also revealed that if it were Chinese technology they risked losing any of these drones, and that in addition, the flight of these aircraft over U.S. navy ships on U.S. territory was a daring and risky provocation that could lead to a serious diplomatic conflict. For the former director of AATIP these multiple sightings were not drones of the Asian giant."

That's where I currently am with it too. Nice to see same conclusions reached.
Basically a higher intensity version of Exercise Mainbrace by the objects.
"A silvery, spherical object"
"a silvery, spherical object" that traveled across the sky, NICAP records show. A reporter named Wallace Litwin, who was on the aircraft carrier, described the UFO as resembling "a white ping-pong ball." Litwin allegedly captured photographs of the object that were reviewed by U.S. Navy Intelligence officers, but the images have never been released to the public, according to NICAP.
On Sept. 13, 1952, several crew members on the Danish destroyer Willemoes saw something unusual: "an unidentified object, triangular in shape, which moved at high speed toward the southeast," according to NICAP records
. It glowed with a bluish light, and the destroyer's commander estimated its speed at more than 900 mph (1,448 km/h)."
