    LOL nobody reads this

    the real expensive is going to be a transition to 'optionally unmanned', I guess

    anyway let's wait and see if the US will be able to pile up this kind of 'products'

    single quotation products will be needed, though, as during 2020s so called Third World countries may be getting what's now relatively high-tech I mean for example S-400 or HQ-9

    New Strategy Fuels Global Demand For More New Bombers

    In my view, the USAF will raise the buy beyond the initial 100 units. Given the A2AD bubble and the standoff distances of the Pacific, I expect a greater reliance on long range penetration bombers as the carriers are kept at a distance - at least initially.
