Any guess on getting eyes on (if ever) - even for cleared folks?

Anyone have any guesses on the nickname?

My WAG is something like Phantom or Raven. Maybe Wraith (then again I'm a sci-fi nerd and I'm pretty sure I've heard these used in various sci-fi games)...

The schedule has been shot to hell. They were supposed to do the build and rollout before the end of the year, but it'll probably be closer to middle of next year now at the earliest.

I was able to officially suggest "Black Widow" cause my dad was USAF.

What the b21 needs is one of those bombs that explodes mid air and like some fireworks spells something. Whats the chinese characters for You Just Got Your Ass Kicked then a smiley face firework/bomb and then one thst just blows up in red white and blue.

Maybe for the "official rollout" on TV we could fake the air burst bomb like the Chinese did for the Olympics. It would still get the point across just fine.


I mean, they already have the aircraft rendered!

The F-22 and B-2 were cost plus, the B-21, at least the first two LRIPs, and probably most of them are fixed. The EMD portion is cost plus.
