    Careful Bro Jeff! his minions are already protecting his legacy here on SDF,,, he's a hero to some here, LOL.... but you are exactly right on the money, it will take the US DOD a number of years to "fight their way back" from the brink of destruction, and the B-21 will become more relevant now that the threat is ramping up..

    Sadly the B-21 is a leftover from the previous administration and their small thinking, I really think it should be at least B-2 size and carry 2 weapons internally!

    Looks like it'll be the USAF version of well run procurement programs like the F/A-18E/F and Virginia SSN.
