Don’t you look familiar? Air Force introduces B-21 bomber

Recommended Posts

The US Air Force wants to have 100 new long-range stealth bombers by the mid-2020s. The new jet still lacks a name, but has been designated as the B-21. For now, it’s only a gleam in an artist’s eye – and a familiar one, at that.

Air Force Secretary Deborah Lee James unveiled an artistic rendering of the next-generation bomber at the Air Warfare Symposium in Orlando, Florida on Friday. Formerly known as the Long-Range Strike Bomber (LRS-B), the new plane has been designated as the B-21 – the first US bomber for the 21st century. Speaking at the event organized by the Air Force Association, James said the futuristic plane still lacks a name, and offered to crowdsource it from USAF personnel.

“So we have an image, we have a designation, but we don’t yet have a name,” James said, according to Defense News, adding, “I’m calling on every airman today... to give us your best suggestions for a name for the B-21, America’s newest bomber.”


Very futuristic looking and they need a name for it.
