Here is a thought. Whats on the USAF plate right now? UCAVS, a tanker replacement, continued F-22 production, C-17's and keeping the line open and finally the money hog F-35 (like the plane hate the costs). With all of this a 150 units of "interm" bomber seems high to me. Thats more "interm" bombers then F-22's if I remeber correctly.

If your going to fuel this thing they better get on top of other projects first even though this one is tech wise more interesting.

I was under the impression that most people don't like when the thing your country spends 4x more then anything else on the military. but maybe thats my Canadian coming out

Think I heard it form Intelgurl before she left. Not 100% on this but I do remeber talkin about FB-23 cancellations.


That's really disappointing if true. I did a brief search, but came up with nothing regarding it being canceled.

If you check out this thread I asked the question and was told that the understanding from 2 of the people on the forums intelgurl and bios where under the impression it was cancelled.
