(ORDO NEWS) — The long-awaited US Air Force’s sixth-generation B-21 Raider strategic bomber will be publicly unveiled for the first time in December 2022, its manufacturer Northrop Grumman said in a press release. The aircraft will be presented at the company’s plant in California.
Based on limited public information, the aircraft is dual-purpose, meaning it can be used to deliver both conventional and nuclear weapons. The new strategic stealth bomber, like its predecessor B-2 Spirit, is made according to the “flying wing” scheme.
The US Air Force is reportedly planning to acquire at least 100 B-21 Raiders in the coming years.
