    An interesting mention in the interview which I believe underscores the potential role of either the B-21 or the RQ-180 as a communications relay node in the system of systems approach in a 5th generation F-35 CONOPs.

    As I mentioned before, the F-35 is central in delivering the common operating picture (COP) but that live data stream cannot be integrated to C2 without some kind of communications relay node.

    A 5th generation battlespace requires a whole new generation of eco system build around it that would change tactics, decision making and command and control. When Germany due to politics opted not to buy the F-35, it is missing out not only the capabilities of a 5th generation asset but will fall behind a generation in how modern warfare will be conducted. It will have difficulty leaping from 4th to 6th generation without the foundation so necessary in the 5th. .

    The new radar will clearly enhance detection and targeting capabilities but "game changer' is stretching it.
