Um, 20 B-2s can't hack the whole mish. They're expensive as hell and have abysmal MC rates. The B-1s have got the chit flown out of them; they're literally canibalizing the fleet to keep up. The Buffs are so old it's painful to fly (I'd know..) and meet, at best, a permissive environment requirement. Anything more than that I might as well take a freggin' B-24 with me cause that's about the edge I got in that gunfight. I'd literally be better off taking an FB-111 from the boneyard today, no questions asked (at least it'd take less people than the Titanic to take a heading, forget glass panel).I can see new tankers, but another bomber? what is wrong with the $1 Billion each B-2?
I guess that was directed my way?You don't have the first clue what you're talking about. We don't make political decisions for the most part. Sounds like you're just trying to stir up trouble, facts show that you're just an ignorant... you not the first and won't be the last to put on that kind of humiliating display.
Bingo!When Kelley Johnson was around, they gave him a requirement and kept it at that requirement. Didn't change it every few months forcing the company to redesign. That is what is wrong now.
