Air Force Reveals Stunning Pictures of New Elite Stealth Bomber About to Enter Service

This week, the United States Air Force disclosed images of its forthcoming stealth bomber, which is expected to be operational in the near future.

Northrop Grumman’s B-21 Raider, a new strategic long-range stealth bomber, was unveiled by the U.S. Military at a special ceremony in Palmdale, California.

The Northrop B-2 Spirit stealth bomber and the B-1 Lancer bomber, which have been in service for three decades, will be replaced by the B-21.

The B-21 is visually comparable to the B-2; however, it is smaller and considerably more advanced due to its expanded electronic and cyber warfare capabilities and more sophisticated stealth technology.

The U.S. Military is requesting over 100 B-21s, a quantity that will dwarf the 21 B-2 bombers that were ever constructed.

The B-21 Raider was named in commemoration of the Doolittle Raid of World War II, which occurred on April 18, 1942.
