The Air Force wants to build a next generation bomber to replace the B-52 and B-1, and eventually the B-2. Northrop Grumman built the B-2 and highlights it in the commercial before offering a glimpse of the next generation bomber’s outline underneath a sheet.
Northrop Grumman is competing against a partnership of Boeing and Lockheed Martin for the rights to build the bomber that the Air Force expects to cost $550 million apiece. Air Force officials hope to introduce the Long Range Strike Bomber to the fleet in the 2020s and build 80-100 of the bombers.
