Well yes, wanting and needing though are two different things.
Also, we are using the B-52 today, so saying theres no role for B-1r is just not true.
Youre not going to want to only use youre super duper brand new bomber for every role either, and also, lets be honest here, this new LRS-B wont be
flown in actual combat until probably 2030 at the earliest. We will still be using B-52s in 2030.
I would field the B-1r in 2025.
