B-21 Raider: the US Air Force unveils its latest nuclear stealth bomber

Northrop Grumman and the US government on Monday night unveiled the last stealth nuclear bomber built for the US military.

The B-21 Raider is billed as the latest and greatest in a long line of American military bombers, and the unveiling ceremony was held before an array of military members, Northrop Grumman employees and elected officials in an Air Force installation in Palmdale, California. , is full of praise for American innovation and military power.

The B-21 Raider is the first new bomber built for the US military in about three decades and is believed to have been developed with a view to a potential future conflict with China. Almost every aspect of its development has been kept under wraps since the Raider contract was awarded seven years ago.

“We are providing American warfighters with an advanced aircraft that offers a combination of range, payload and survivability,” Northrop Grumman wrote of its new bomber. “The B-21 Raider will be able to penetrate the toughest defenses to deliver precision strikes anywhere in the world. The B-21 is the future of deterrence.

Secretary of Defense Lloyd Austin was one of the government officials who spoke at the ceremony, calling it “a proud day for the United States Air Force and our country.”

“Congratulations to the entire Northrop Grumman team for pulling off this great job,” Mr. Austin said.

Mr Austin said the bomber will have the capability to support US-aligned forces “across the full spectrum of operations”, giving the nation’s military an “advantage that will last for decades”.

NPR reported Friday on changes to the new bomber model that will theoretically make it harder to detect than the current one, better able to disguise itself and use new propulsion technologies. Six B-21 Raiders are currently in production, with plans to build up to 100 in the pipeline.

The cost to build each bomber is unclear, although estimates place the price per bomber at over $750 million. The United States continues to maintain the largest defense budget in the world, with the Department of Defense receiving a budget of approximately $722 billion in 2022. This budget is expected to increase further in the next fiscal year.

Meanwhile, the United States remains alone among industrialized nations in not providing free health care, paid family and medical leave, and free higher education to its citizens.

Northrop Grumman stands to benefit hugely from the stealth bomber project, with the company’s shares expected to rise in value as bomber production ramps up.
