If a smaller payload was all that was the difference, maybe a few tweaks to the bay could have helped that a bit? if your already using off the shelf
tech and a perfectly good flying planform, i would think that would save ALLOT of money and time to get some bombers out there right NOW till the 2038
and maybe even the LRS-B come out? i think i saw a operational date around 2018
Any info on the X-44 MANTA? there doesn't seem to be allot out there on this, or maybe i just didn't look good enough?
