A new USAF missile?

New to the USAF, that is.  It appear that the USAF is going to base a new missile for use in its next generation aircraft on the current USN Anti-radar ARM.  In this case there seems to be some actual cooperation between the services to make a weapon usable by both.  Hopefully it will save some money as well.

Stealth

How hard is defeating stealth technology?  Pretty hard according to this article.  While I think 5th generation technology is pretty good, I am skeptical that it can’t be defeated.  Quantity has a quality all its own.

Looks like the B-1 will be phased out as the B-21 comes online.  Meanwhile the B-52 will continue to soldier on until 2040.

Looks like the B-21 program is progressing.  Will be interested to see how this develops and if they can keep the cost down.

Is deployment closer than we all think?  This story makes me wonder.
