America's Latest B-21 Raider Officially Bomber: The World's First Generation 6

 The United States Air Force has officially introduced the latest bomber-type fighter, the B-21 Raider. This bat-winged bomber is smaller in size but with more power than its pioneer, the B-2 Spirit.

So the world's first sixth batch of fighters today, the B-21 mentioned Northrop Grumman CEO and president Kathy Warden, "an unbeatable bomber."

Northrop is indeed the contractor of the latest force bomber to join the American Air Force--after initially designing the B-2 Spirit. The 2 at the end do look similar, especially in the design of the wings that are similar to a large bat, a lack of tail, a plain exterior, and a small and dark cockpit on the nose.

For the record, the first batch of stealth bombers began to strengthen the American army in 1988. And, the idea is, the first B-21 Raider will fly first and begin service at the end of this decade.

The B-21 Raider was brought from the U.S. Air Force's advanced aircraft research and upgrade facility in Palmdale, California, to be shown to the public in a ceremony held on Friday evening, December 2, 2022, on-site time.

At that time the US Secretary of Defense, Lloyd Austin, praised Northrop Grumman who he said continued to work hard in the production of the B-21 in the midst of the Covid-19 outbreak. This bomber was launched only for a short time through the agenda that had been made.

Austin mentions the aircraft as having unlimited power, and visualizes its stealth character as, "even the greatest air defense will have trouble targeting it."

He encouraged the open architectural design of the B-21 Raider that allowed the aircraft to be refurbished with the latest electronic devices and weaponry at any time.

"This is an American-style weapon of deterrence," Austin said in front of military personnel, government officials, Northrop Grumman employees and the mass media. "This is the first bomber of the 21st era."

The B-21 Raider bomber aircraft was created to work in the most highly terrorized environment of the future. The B-21 Raider is believed to also play an important role in maintaining American superiority in the air.

America once said its idea of making a minimum of 100 B-21 stealth bombers. That number was to replace a fleet of 20 B-2 Spirit and 45 B-1B Lancer bombers. The chances of production numbers will be added considering the rapid addition of Chinese nuclear weapons, the need for a long-range base in a conservative Asia/Pacific war scenario, and Russian aggression into Ukraine.

In that time, a fleet of 76 B-52H Stratofortresses bombers built between 1961 and 1966, would work from the B-21 side until the 2040s or so.

Bombs and Missiles to Be Carried

The American Air Force visualized the B-21 Raider as a stealth bomber with long-range penetrative strike power, having high endurance. Northrop Grumman said the sixth batch of aircraft, or the latest of several fighter jet forces, dates back to the end of World War II.

As a differentiator, the F-22 Raptor, F-35 Merge Strike Fighter, and J-20 from China are only the three 5th batch fighter jets in the world that are currently operational. The B-21 is only one of the sixth batch of aircraft that has been made in the world.

Conservative weaponry to equip the B-21 includes all-weather bombs GBU-53B Stormbreaker, Merge Air to Surface Standoff Missile (JASSM), and Long Range Anti-Ship Missile (LRASM).

There is also a chance there are air-to-surface hypersonic missiles but the US Air Force did not say explicitly. then, the nuclear weapons that the B-21 predicted to carry include the B61-12 nuclear gravity bomb and the Long Range Stand Off (LRSO) nuclear explosive cruise missile.

Northrop Grumman has six B-21s that have been built or are being handled. At least one is undergoing a test on the ground, counting running an electronic mechanism that does not require the aircraft to be airborne. Flight tests are tentatively planned for 2023.

The B-21 Raider was named after Doolittle's Raiders, an army of 16 B-25 Mitchell bombers that attacked Japan in April 1942, or 5 months after Pearl Harbor. The force was held by General James 'Jimmy' Doolittle, took off from the aircraft carrier USS Hornet, attacked targets as far away as central Japan, and flew directly to a precarious airport in China.
