    Probably a mock up of a hypersonic missile to demonstrate the increased capacity to house them.

    The increased capacity will allow the B-1 to carry 40 LRASM up from the present capacity of 24. A pair of B-1s potentially can deliver 80 LRASMs in one strike. Currently it is the weapon of choice against a large naval surface group due to its VLO, ESM features and ability to coordinate a swarm attack collaboratively..

    Mass 2,500 lb (1,100 kg) (air-launch)[3]

    LOL I edited this post because I wrongly thought a Lancer max. payload was smaller (originally posted it was twenty something tons)
