I did a thread quite some time ago that looked at aircraft, ranges and the geography involved here...
I wonder how they've solved those issues? IF the B-2 can get in and back out without being seen at all, they won't need escorts of course, but our Stealth Technology isn't bullet proof as Serbia and the little B-2 like drone showed. Err... If they do this, I hope no one in Washington is thinking Half Way or quick win. We're going to lose World War III if we go into this thinking it's a quick ass kicking and home for the election.edit on 7-9-2012 by Wrabbit2000 because: minor correction. ...sorry ..tired
