B-21 Raider Is USA’s Newest Pride

    The B-21 “Raider” is evidence that US stealth technology has indeed advanced significantly. The B-21 Raider, with its 9,600 km range and roughly 10-ton payload, was unveiled in Palmdale, California, early on December 3 and is the sole hope for being able to combat China without coming within range of its missiles. Even though it was the only angle shown, the front aspect of the plane shows the unmatched American leadership in stealth flying.

    The single biggest sign of the engine and material technologies used in the plane is the tiny air intakes. Large intakes enhance the likelihood that radar will bounce off the aircraft because there is more surface area for it to do so.

    B-21 Raider Is Impressive

    It is well known that the B-21 Raider was designed as a subsonic aircraft and was not intended for fighter-style maneuvers. Its introduction and eventual use would be the US’s first effective weapon in the Western Pacific against China’s vast array of logistical, technological, and doctrinal vulnerabilities.

    The B-2’s unusual stealth pattern of sharp edges and serrations was absent from the white paint scheme. It is unknown if this was the final paint job.

    However, it is safe to infer that Northrop has made efforts to move away from the pricey radar coating paint and materials, whose deterioration frequently holds a large number of B-2s in the hangar. Every significant US installation is within range of China’s tens of thousands of DF-16, DF-17, DF-21, DF-21D, and DF-26 missiles, which will be the first to be destroyed in the event of a full-scale conflict. The US can only stand by and watch helplessly as China encircles and retakes Taiwan since Kadena is in Japan and Guam has been “bombed out.”

    If the US steps in, the Chinese may continue fighting from their own territory and continue shooting down any American naval and air assets while suffering a level of material and human losses that is both reasonable and expected.
