lol. I think they were going to make an announcement. You beat them to it.



closest image i could find that was similar. looks like there's a bit more engine space from the cabin. And the engine looks like it's further back.





It's something very similar to a B-2 in looks isn't it.




That looks like what flew over me last year in South West England. It was silent.

No. We elected to do that on our own.

It very well could be! But I'm not convinced that it is a B-2 until someone in the know says so for sure. I'm not convinced.

To me it looks like the intakes are spaced wrong. That leads me to think that they could be false as a means of disguising it's shape from long range photographers.

Looks like the B-2s baby brother.

Nice pic guys. Definitely looks wrong for a B-2. I wonder what your personal opinions are on if it's an LRS-B or an RQ-180


China and the Ruskies will be happy you posted these pictures...

i think that's just from the skewed perspective, the wings are huge for sure and seem to have a 'chink'.

Because they don't have any possible way of getting them without us posting them.

They probably already know more about the program than the US taxpayer ever will.

no doubt, im sure it is someones whole career to see these things and with way better intelligence and equipment it's not a stretch of the imagination.

look at the flyovers of the mystery triangles a few years ago, they weren't doing S turns for nothing, im sure they were doing so as to be imaged by satellites

China's already stolen the CAD drawings most likely and the Russians couldn't do much about it even if they had much better photos.

I don't know. The dude in the article seems to think they could be cranked, but I'm not quite sure.

I think the fact that it was moved back indoors before daylight tells the tale. I vote B-21. As for the "next morning" B-2 satellite pic, they could have easily pulled a B-2 out and parked it so the AF could say, "Nothing to see here, move along."

Keep in mind it has a 130 foot wingspan and stands only 12 feet high. Its much smaller than a B2.

again a known tatic the AF has used, in the same fly over of *not the B-21*.


its pretty obvious its something interesting, someone said the 180 but im going to bet $'s to doughnuts it's unmanned and this clearly has a cockpit.

That may be either an inlet (see the RQ-170 for a bump that kinda looks like a cockpit, but isn't) or a sat dish like on the Global Hawk.

So from what I've read about the B-21 is that it is smaller, more upgradable, slightly better priced version of the B-2.

Is there anything ground breaking new about it? I saw they could make it autonomous.

That's a possibility. But with stealth developments I'd want to do away with a traditional windscreen and all that joining and RAM layering around the frame of the glass. I could easily see them doing a solid one piece skin that goes from nose right over the entire cockpit. The windscreen being underneath it and not traditional. I say that's a b21 in that photo and that its manned. After all it is supposed to be nuke capable. Would the air force really want a drone doing nuclear missions. Possible one could but would they really let that happen.

Yes lots of ground breaking stuff under the hood.

I don't see a wind screen in the photo. I just see a hump. And I've been zooming in as close as I can.
