I am looking at a bomber with a over sized bomb bay for a Massive Ordnance Penetrator bunker buster bomb with rocket assist.
The GBU-57 is a 20-foot long GPS-guided bomb and will only penetrate 200 feet of concrete.
I believe they would like to add a 5 foot long rocket booster to allow it to penetrate up to 300 of concrete or over 500+ feet of hard packed dirt.
Both Iran, and North Korea have deep buried nuclear bomb projects.
Basically the B3 will be a larger B2 with a longer bomb bay of about 30 feet and with upgrades.
To get penetration, you need increased terminal velocity
I believe the US wants a bomber to use if ether Iran or North Korea ever uses a nuke.
Some thing to take out iran or North Korea leadership without responding with US nukes against Iran or North Korea cities.
