    Until now the B-21 has been referred to as the Long Range Strike Bomber because it will be designed to launch from the U.S. and strike any target around the globe.

    When Northrop Grumman won the contract to build the B-21 last year, Defense Secretary Ashton Carter said it will allow the U.S. to "project power across the globe now and into the future," calling it a "strategic investment for the next 50 years."

    Long term, the idea is for these planes to replace Air Force B-52 bombers, which have been flying for more than half a century -- and eventually the B-1 bombers, when they retire sometime in the 2040s.

    As a tax payer I demand that they do a live fire demonstration assault on Staten Island to prove it's ability.

    so I was gonna jump in with the hippy post about maybe we could spend some cash to feed the homeless or some shit
    you know--just to be an asshole on the internet

    but then I looked 737 million each
    that's a lot of fucking cash
    I hope we bomb someone real fucking good with these things
    get your money's worth and all that

    Will this one take 20 years and $300 billion UN overruns to go operational?

    For $737 million I wonder if that fucking thing comes with a cigarette lighter? Pilots should get to reward themselves with a smoke after bombing the Third World back to the Stone Age.

    Agreed but I think they are different enough that the chicks will dig the new version.
