There are rumors they went with at least a limited air to air capability from the get go.

I really hope that the idea of a "flying AEGIS" catches on. Now that stealth is mature is it's rumored to be with the B-21 (as are active anti-missile systems as well), the "flying fortress" idea now makes more sense than it ever has since WWII, if not significantly earlier.

I'd argue that it should push us back nearly to the early years of WWI Zeppelins in terms of the raw technological and tactical advantage that the -21 should offer, although now with significantly nastier teeth.

Ongoing development is a good idea. Get something out there that can help the troops now.
