there are only so many things it could be, bomber, fighter, cargo or surveillance. and considering the 180 is doing its thing that would scratch ISR out, bomber is taken by the LRS-B, fighter would be the F22 and F35. so thats leaves tanker/cargo, unless its some sort of target drone.


unless its some sort of EW platform or CAS role i don't know what else you can do from the air. i HIGHLY duobt it would be giving rides to mini sats or something that would skip along the edge of space. but who knows.

I have a feeling D.U.D.E might be coming back out to terrorize the Aviation forum in a short while.

Maybe it's some kind of really fast/stealthy AWACS replacement? Those birds are anything but stealthy right now...

Thought I'd at least throw my hat into the ring. I could see a use for a stealthy AWACS/flying ATC that can be on station anywhere in the world in hours. It could also act as a central hub for 180 intel, ground forces, battlenet, sat com...all while remaining safely hidden from radars.

It's speed could also be an asset as it could run away if discovered.

Wow, that would be so cool, and much more like "Death From Above", rather than "Death From NOE".

Right?

LOL

I am totally prepared to be blown away.

But since you bring it up: would paratroops think it was way cooler? I figured it would be too fast.

Thanks Zaphod.

That's actually not the platform they use. The one they use is quite versatile and from what I understand they like it a lot so far. It hasn't reached FOC though.

The question can be, what it can do with this planform ?? What we see on the picture its a 2 engine plane, with a mystery contrail departure and a triangular planform. Surely long range with a lot amount of fuel with this planform subsonic or supersonic may be possible , may be a LRS-B demonstrator , 2 or 3 company works on the futur bomber it can be a demonstrator of some sort. In my opinion not a troop transport and Zaph says not a transport too.

I'm going to throw my hat into the ring and say it's clearly a stealthy cloud seeder. Deployed to literally rain on peoples parades!
