Crazy Bassplyr speculation time:
aerodynamic design/planform borrowing lessons learned and ideas from a previous design that has some interesting tricks up it's sleeve that Lockheed
has built. But we wont be hearing about it any time soon. LM low observables, but composits by Boeing. Boeing low observables too. Boeing fluidic
thrust vectoring. Manufacturing and other mechanical systems largely by Boeing.
Range: Greater than the B-2
Speed: More than marginally better than the B-2. Almost B-1 range. Don't believe it will be a flying wing. But a blended wing and fuselage
Altitude: Dynamic. High and low. Flys in the day or night. Rain or shine.
Weapons payload: Please be better than the B-2. Don't see why it wouldn't.
Lasers for self defense. Not the pew pew kind. microwave sponge for skin. ... Other optical tricks.
fuzzy dice in the cockpit.
Sharper image massage chairs too.
soda dispenser and snack machine in rear of cockpit.
Astromech droid socket.
free wifi and HBO beamed into pilots helmet HUD for in flight entertainment on those long nights penetrating Russia and China sans lube or dinner or
nifty communication package that gets better reception than my iphone.
Neon lights for undercarriage.
Equipped with D.U.D.E AI system.
Should be pretty sweet.
