The world’s first sixth-generation aircraft, B-21 Raider, was unveiled in California on December 2, 2022.
The bomber is reportedly capable of breaching strong defenses and launching precision strikes.
The aircraft is distinguished by its stealth technology and advanced networking capabilities. The integration of data, sensors, and weapons provides flexibility to the plane.
Despite being a complex aircraft, the stealth bomber is relatively easy to upgrade.
B-21 Raider can be upgraded via software and built-in hardware flexibility to meet the challenge of advanced adversary technology.
Manufacturer Northrop Grumman, contracted by the US Air Force, has built six B-21 stealth bombers, with many more in the pipeline.
