In less than two months, the US promises to introduce a plane that will "change everything"


The American concern Northtrop Grumman is preparing to present the first prototype of the B-21 Raider stealth bomber. The presentation of the aircraft, which, according to the developer, will “change everything”, is scheduled for December 2 this year. The event will be held at the same US Air Force base in California, where the first serial B-1988 Spirit stealth bomber was first shown in 2.


The characteristics of the "Raider" are kept in the strictest confidence. Visually, it is similar to its predecessor, but, according to Northtrop Grumman, completely new Technology to overcome enemy air defense systems. The B-21 was designed to deliver a nuclear or conventional rocket-bomb charge without destroying the aircraft by any means of air defense. When creating a new bomber, the company took into account the capabilities of the Russian S-400 and S-500 air defense systems capable of detecting the B-2 Spirit.

The Pentagon plans to purchase up to 145 units of new aircraft for its Air Force, depending on the final cost of the B-21. It is expected that the novelty will be cheaper than the B-2, which is the most expensive combat aircraft in the world at $1,157 billion per unit.


Despite the fact that the US military pompously calls the new product “a nightmare for Russia” and “an aircraft that will change everything,” the inaccessibility of the B-21 to Russian air defense systems has not yet been proven. In addition, the range of weapons, including hypersonic ones, for the new bomber is only at the development stage.

    Strategic bombers remained in the 20th century, with modern rapidly developing air defense and airborne reconnaissance equipment (satellites, AWACS and others), such colossus will be escorted directly from airfields, like nuclear weapons carriers. An example of today's SVO, this is how Caliber, Daggers and other UAVs work. Large bombers, only an increase in the cost of using weapons, because they do not approach targets, launch missiles from great distances, so you can eliminate the unnecessary link of heavy aviation. Here fighter-bombers, like the Su-34, are needed and have their own niche in hostilities. Conclusion: This B-21 is very similar to misinformation, for directing us and the PRC along a dead end path.

      They said loudly) In my opinion, either hypersound, such as Dagger, or Poseidon can change everything. And this is without pathos.
      Agree with the previous comment. It's like a lenkor left with honors in the 20th century and aircraft carriers leave in the 21st ..

      Let's not chop off our shoulders, and at the beginning we will soberly assess whether bomber bombers are so useless ...
      As if then you didn’t have to sprinkle ashes on your head, as with "BTG"And"compact professional army".

      And then after all - " will reform", and it will be impossible to win back ...

    Yes, this plane will change everything for the worse for the United States. A useless airplane. So pass it on to the developers.

      Idiot logic. If their "invisibility" strikes, then the Russian strategic nuclear forces will be leveled to a complete Apocalypse, including both the creators and the users, with all their relatives. And those who are now looking "through their fingers" at their future death.

    go, they did it under hypersound. To not drag one unit, like our MiG31, but four or five pieces. Plus for us, it's expensive. Considering the future crisis, including the dollar, let them squander))

        Printed money only makes sense when you are being sold something for it. When they say that give us gold, or our goods .... and leave the paper for yourself, then there is no point in printing pieces of paper.
        And everything goes to the fact that the dollar will soon be a junk asset. Everyone understood everything. The arrest of Russian money showed that the paper is worthless.

          I have been hearing this talk about the impending death of the dollar for more than 20 years. Since then, only the ruble has fallen from 6,5 rubles per dollar to about 65. And I also threw out the beginning and middle of the 90s with galloping ruble inflation.
          And yes, the dollar will die soon, obviously.

          The dollar is unlikely to become a junk asset. His power will be weaker, but this is in the future. Although there is a trend. The Anglo-Saxon Empire is very powerful, obviously. But it's very bloated. Stalin was not allowed to drown / limit the dollar at one time. Maybe now it will work. Don't know. It's all slow. China throws off the debts of the Anglo-Saxons / dollars, but little by little. Immediately - more expensive. Now the Anglo-Saxons are trying by any means (wars, intimidation, bribery, blackmail of the elites) to preserve the power of the dollar. The collapse of the dollar, they can not afford. Since the 90s, almost everyone has been in power (especially financial) with dollar adherents. Resist. Therefore, all these defaults and sabotage. I think there will be a fragmentation of the financial system into separate parts. AUCUS was created as a fallback (including) if most of the world cannot be left under the dollar. Let's see.
          And they have a good plane, I think. Engineers are valued there and spare no expense for it. But no one has yet canceled mathematics, chemistry and physics) The main thing is to competently manage knowledge and embody this knowledge. We would have to deal with "our" elites for a start.

      Replica A huge machine with a wall of resistance quadrature on hypersound, these are engines, fuel plus thermal coating, weapons - it will pull on an interplanetary ship from fantasy, which means everything from the realm of fantasy.

    Let's start with the fact that the capabilities of the new US air defense systems can be known very approximately, in addition, the creators of the B-2 and F-117 already promised something similar, and as a result, the F-117 was shot down by an antediluvian air defense system in Yugoslavia, after which the B-2 construction program quickly turned

    Well, the sooner they show their super plane, the sooner the decision will be made to slam the United States and nullify their ability to create and produce new weapons. Americans do not understand that no one will wait until they can become a military superpower that will exploit all other peoples and resources.
    We don't need new slave owners. Live in poverty for the beautiful life of Americans? Let them die, even at the cost of our lives.

    Well, if they want to check for stealth, then let it fly over Russia and everything will be clear right away. And then the Americans have only one PR, and then it turns out that they spent money in vain.

    How can there be something inconspicuous in this world, since even a "fart" in the toilet is betrayed by publicity and the media is savored?
