Is Hyper-Soar US' next strategic bomber? Probably not. Infact, B-3 will not even be supersonic. The B3 bomber is a subsonic extension of the existing B-2 Spirit flying wing. US Air Combat Command initiated the Future Stirke Aircraft or FSA study with the nation's three prime contractors for airframes - Boeing, Lockheed Martin and Northrop Grumman to look ahead and develop concpts for the heavy bomber. Couple of years ago, Nothrop Grumman came out with 2 different design studies. One hypersonic waverider, another a Mach 2 supercruiser. The third design was not revealed.
