Artist impression. Not real. Knew that.

Pratt was selected to supply the engine by Northrop.

And even more like the original B-2. That happens when they're all flying wings.

when can we expect something equivalent to a Carrier, but in thr Air?

Nothing like the Aveng3rs helicarrier, but something like from Godzilla 2, a massive flying wing with a full compliment aboard, weapons and drones.

Or the latest Ace Combat game with that massive flying wing and its AI wingmens drones?

Naw, I don't buy that.

What I posted sounds entirely feasible and within our engineering capacity.

With enough hallucinogens, anything is possible (or viable)

Yeah yeah, I get it, Deathstars and drugs, yada yada, I'm merely asking because our ability to build fifth gen flying wing bombers and our complete mastery of the air leads me to think such a thing is possible.

So, sure, dismiss my post, what smug hubris, I'm looking towards the impossible for possibilities.

Throw enough money and a big enough engine you could get a brick to fly right.

Long time Darkpr0, nice to see you again.


Never really left. I always keep an eye here but usually can't take the time to post anymore.

The B-21 passed its critical design review in 2018, and Northrop has already begun production on the first aircraft.


Article also says they are starting construction on some new buildings too.

Zaph you taking a trip to Palmdale?

Not this time. We saw the new construction last time. They're building a RAM application building for the Raider.

So wait, they dont have at least one fully flyable, intact bird already built? I still want to know what was photographed over Texas a few years ago if it was not part of the LRS-B competition.

I got the impression that it was a demonstrator aircraft. However zaph would know better.
