U.S. Air Force set out to develop a new bomber to hit the target depth China
B-2A stealth bomber for the U.S. Air Force is currently the most advanced bomber
LONDON September 16 news: United States 14, Bloomberg reported that U.S. Air Force next year’s Budget is expected to begin research from the new bomber, This is about 30 years ago, the self-Northrop Grumman developed the B-2 “ghost”, the first development of this aircraft. Experts said the new bomber will allow U.S. forces to target Iran, China and other countries within the target.
14 days, Air Force Chief of Staff Gen. Norton Schwartz, National Harbor, Maryland (NationalHarbor) to participate in the annual meeting of Aeronautics and Astronautics, said: “I’m sure the U.S. will benefit from long-range strike capability.”
Schwartz said the Air Force’s plan is to continue to use its B-2, B-1 and B-52 bombers at the same time, the development of a “new platform.” He said the project will initially produce “appropriate type” bomber, and ultimately integrated into the more advanced capabilities.
However, the increase of new bombers may intensify the competition for funds for the Pentagon – Since 2001, U.S. Defense Secretary Robert Gates has been working to reduce expenses, “spewing”, the annual inflation increase rate. With bat-wing shape of the B-2 bombers into the development in 1981, priced at approximately $ 1.2 billion.
these expenditures help promote the current decades-old flight model upgrade. The first flight of Boeing B-52 bombers in 1954 fitted out by the current ownership of a company developed by the Boeing B-1 bombers in the mid-1980s put into operation.
Schwartz said the Air Force is currently working on new bomber project of this size and financial discussions. He said he hopes the proposal will be included in next year will be submitted to Congress in February 2012 Budget.
Schwartz said the Air Force is trying to limit the budget situation, adjust the specifications of the new bomber.
independent defense research organization in Washington – Center for Strategic and Budgetary Assessments, a senior fellow Make Gang Jin cells (MarkGunzinger) pointed out that the new long-range strategic bombers will be dedicated towards a shorter way to fill the current development of the Air Force jet fighter there is a “significant gap.”
Gang Jin said in an interview format, the first step, the United States must begin to develop at least 100 “by the manipulation can also be unmanned bomber,” the composition of the fleet, and these bombers to be able to carry 2 million pounds (9072 kg) load, and flight 5000 sea miles.
Gang Jin grid added that the cost of a single bomber might be as high as $ 500 million and take 15 years to research and development. He also said that bombers should be assisted to be able to take off from a U.S. aircraft carrier flight 1500 sea miles and unmanned bombers, long-range cruise missiles, targeting within a few hours of conventional ballistic missiles and enemy radar planes to waste. Gang Jin cells, these elements will form a new “system family”, the U.S. military to target Iran, China and other countries within the target. (Compiled: Spring)
