Obligatory "can this be the next DCS module" request.

Awaiting: DCS F-15C

Win 10 i5-9600KF 4.6 GHz 64 GB RAM RTX2080Ti 11GB -- Win 7 64 i5-6600K 3.6 GHz 32 GB RAM GTX970 4GB -- A-10C, F-5E, Su-27, F-15C, F-14B, F-16C missions in User Files

Not just carbon fiber composites, and quantum supercomputers.   Freedom carbon fibre composites and freedom quantum supercomputers.

I know its highly classified. But I would love to take a peek at her butt end. With exaust vanes and elevons.

Its smaller then B-2A. Significantly lower payload, but similar range, and much cheaper. Thus a larger fleet.

USAF ang NG claim that B-21A is 6th gen combat aircraft. So what defines 6th vs. 5th gen.

I imagine they're referring to technology being incorporated into next gen fighters. Networking, drones, and optional unmanned capability. They also mentioned that the B-21 can take on more roles than bombing. I wonder if some capacity as an AWACS is intended given the vulnerability of something like an E-3 and the development of long range AAM's.

Aww, the B-2 got a baby

I know it's of no importance whatsoever, but still, regarding looks, I much more prefer the bigger B-2.

 

(then again, my aesthetic preference might be weird. As I also liked the unusual shape of the F-32 more than the imo boring looking F-35)

System specs:

 

i7-8700K @stock speed - GTX 1080TI @ stock speed - AsRock Extreme4 Z370 - 32GB DDR4 @3GHz- 500GB SSD - 2TB nvme - 650W PSU

HP Reverb G1 v2 - Saitek Pro pedals - TM Warthog HOTAS - TM F/A-18 Grip - TM Cougar HOTAS (NN-Dan mod) & (throttle standalone mod) - VIRPIL VPC Rotor TCS Plus with ALPHA-L grip - Pointctrl & aux banks <-- must have for VR users!! - Andre's SimShaker Jetpad - Fully adjustable DIY playseat - VA+VAICOM

For a stealth to act as AWACS proxy, or be used as relay platform , seems contrary to its mission of staying undetected as long as possible, on way to target. But as passive ELINT platform , it may work. I doubt USAF would use it as a linebacker or as a q-back. Offensive lineman, as tip of spear, delivering munitions, seems to be in line with its assumed capabilities.
