What's fascinating is that the RQ-180 was found to be a viable operational platform, cutting back the need for an all inclusive bomber like MightMight the Great has suggested.

Toss some F-35 tech onto the B-21 plus a couple other goodies, and boom, you just saved a good amount of money on your next bomber, and you minimize the complexity.

You also pave the way for a variation of the "loyal wingman" concept.

Northrop hit the jackpot and if the B-21 program doesn't hit too many set backs, it'll be a major win for the USAF.

Remenber this video, everybody was saying this is the B-21 concept but may be it could be a RQ-180 concept Under the wrap and there is just one pilot strange for a bomber

Id be thinking more C5ISR than C4ISR these days..All depends on if its present or future viable.Does the video line up with what was seen at Edwards?

You do realize, I trust, that this was simply a television commercial for Northrop Grumman. The shape under the tarp was not intended to be any specific aircraft. It was simply a generic shape representing future military aviation.
