Interesting thread and information. This is a field I know very little about so it's neat to learn some. I read somewhere that the us has put somekind of super drone in Japan as well, Global Hawk. What's that!?

Whoever said that the B-2 is the only bomber that can carry the MOAB? Well that's not exactly true. All our bombers have the same exact bomb bays and racks. What fits in one will go in the other, what they did was make new racks. They can put these racks in any of them. B-2, B-52 and B-1. It wouldn't make sense to have them in the B-52 unless they were flying over A-stan where anti-air is nil.

I started a thread today about US deployments that were making me nervous.
The Chinese Air Force has announced that it has a F-22 type aircraft ready to make its first flight within a year. The Chinese believe this aircraft will enter service within ten years. U.S. intelligence believes the Chinese are nowhere near this kind of capability. But given the quantity and quality of data Chinese hackers have been stealing in the past five years, it's possible that they have much of the American technology that makes the F-22 and F-35 possible. Some believe that the Chinese also have a F-35 type design in the works as well.
