If Northrop builds LRS-B, GE Aviation will manufacture the primary and secondary power distribution systems, not the plane's engine, according to a source with knowledge of the program. GE was partnered with the Boeing-Lockheed Martin team on the power plant, the source said.

The news that GE is not the winning engine maker fuels speculation that Northrop's bomber will be powered by Pratt & Whitney engines. Although nothing is certain, some have hypothesized that LRS-B will use Pratt's F135 engines, according to a recent analysis by Jim McAleese.


link to Defense News.

Article also goes on to say it looks like Raytheon is the biggest loser of the bunch.

Assuming the protest is shot down.

Zaph: you said the ADVENT engine has a F135 core, right?

If you watch GE's video about there new engine at the end when its talking about tomorrows military there is a interesting shadow of something very LRS-B looking

Why wouldn't they? They're building systems for it.

primary and secondary power distribution systems

Electrical systems so a power source may be APU,exotic battery and maybe something else.

APU and power supply units throughout the aircraft.

Worst timing ever. They had ongoing power plant issues with the F110 fleet and got hit with a number of unrelated failures in other engines.

In the Video you referred to it looks to me like an NG 6th Gen fighter concept:

It also looks like the planform discussed here:

That would be an interesting, if not entirely unsurprising development

i just thought it was something cool to point out for those of us who like to read between the lines so to speak. I dont know how many people would see something like that unless it was pointed out.

Do you think we go on a ADVENT style engine with Pratt and Whitney or just a double F-135 configuration ?

Yeah it is cool looking.

I truly think that the creators of thing like that read our forum for the latest and greatest in educated speculation.

Wasn't it labled a P-ISR in the other graphic, here the planform is associated with a Gen 6 Fighter. Curious...
