The latest promising American stealth bomber B-21 Raider, designed to replace the entire existing bomber fleet aviation The US Air Force will most likely be able to shoot down enemy fighters. This is written in an article for Air Force Magazine, Major General Scott L. Pleus, reports Naked Science


Media: New B-21 US bomber will be able to fight fighters


In his article on a promising American bomber, Major General said that the B-21 will have new ways of self-defense and that he will be able to use air-to-air missiles, which will probably help him in the fight against enemy fighters when performing combat tasks. Earlier, the U.S. Air Force noted that the B-21 Raider is a long-range aircraft with enhanced survival capabilities in combat, able to penetrate into the area guarded by enemy air defense systems and carry out strategically important missions.

The B-21 aircraft is a new-generation strategic bomber for the US Air Force, which in the future should replace all aircraft of this class that are in service: B-1B, B-2 and B-52H aircraft. The new bomber is designed according to the "flying wing" scheme, it will be subtle and subsonic. Most likely, to reduce the cost of the design, the combat radius and the number of weapons on board will be reduced. The cost of one B-21 is expected in the region of 500 million dollars.

Its exact dimensions have not yet been disclosed, but it is known that it will be smaller than the American "strategist" B-2 and more than the UCLASS project deck-mounted drone.

As the Deputy Chief of Staff of the United States Air Force, General Stephen Wilson, stated, the first flight of a promising bomber will take place at Edwards Air Force Base in California in early December 2021.

The US Air Force command expects that the first B-21 Raider bombers will go into service in the middle of the 2020's. According to available information, it is planned to purchase at least one hundred new aircraft, which should gradually replace the outdated strategic bombers of the US Air Force.

      And so. We’ll look. Spirit (B-2 Spirit) for 2 + 1 (upgrade apiece) gigabytes cannot fight fighters, and the castrated Ryder is in vain for a pitot of megabytes of mogets. I do not believe negative

    I read this idea a long time ago. Even in 70, Americans tried to arm their bombers with air-to-air missiles. But it didn’t work out. By the way, if he is stealth, what will happen when rockets are launched? He will then lose his invisibility! In short, there are more questions than answers.

        Yes, no ... Fighter, like, must fly by. And then he followed on, with a rocket. This is just in case. And suddenly the truth - will bring down. But seriously, I think that bombers will not fly without cover, especially subsonic ones. So these missiles may not come to anything.

        No. There is a deep American thought that Stealth will detect the enemy earlier and launch missiles to defeat and fly on. Yeah subsonic huge pepelats will destroy supersonic, but small. We have it from 2x to 3 M. I would like to see it in IKO. Well released and died. before the Runner’s missiles reach the interceptor.
        What can I say. Yankees are degrading

      1. You can detect the OLS, and the rocket itself with ARLGSN with AFAR.
      2. You can turn on the radar in LPI mode.
      3. You can turn on the radar when there is a chance, when you are already detected.

        1. the detection range in the faculty of the OSS does not exceed 25-30 miles. Guidance even less
        2. LPI mode does not exceed a range of 35 miles and is affected by information interference
        3. When a bomber is discovered, it’s too late for its crew to drink Borjomi.

      It doesn’t beat off, it’s technically impossible. The idea is to intercept single-range long-range missiles of the S-300-400 type and / or drive away an enemy fighter from the bombers.

    Speaking about the combat aircraft of the future, one cannot fail to mention two promising projects. First of all, it is a promising American strategic bomber B-21 Raider. Its predecessor, the B-2 bomber, which is being developed in complete secrecy, brought to the world of aviation a record low effective dispersion area (EPR) for such a huge machine. It is possible that the B-21 that is being developed to replace it will also contain any breakthrough solutions. For example, it can be equipped with defensive laser weapons and the ability to destroy enemy aircraft using a powerful airborne radar with AFAR and long-range V-V missiles. If these capabilities are realized, the B-21 Raider will conceptually be close to the appearance of a promising combat aircraft, discussed in this article (defensive aircraft, large ammunition).

        A normal bomber has several tens of tons of load. 4-8 missiles in the SD are just 1-4 tons, another 4-8 MD, this is also 1 ton. So what? Will heavy ammunition decrease?

        Listen to Syutkin, I’ll manage somehow.

        In addition to the RF goals are complete. And by the way, what will they bring down abroad? Nuclear bomb? Which here one comrade offers for any occasion.

            There is also a radar on the B-2.
            Dimensions are not exactly known.
            As for the castrated, this is a controversial statement.
            The fuel efficiency of engines is unknown.
            The bombs became smaller, but more precisely.

            The main task in the design of the B-21 is to make the car less whimsical, less expensive to operate than the B-2, and at the same time no less efficient and more multifunctional. How come - let's see.

            PS What is the name of it?

    With the advent of explosive missiles with full-spherical launch and target capture after launch, as well as missiles with radio command correction and ARGSn, the maneuverability requirements for attacking the enemy sharply decreased and it is natural that explosives will appear on bombers.
    М
    The point is to make a maneuverable aircraft, if the rocket can be fired at least backward.
    The radar, I think, is already quite good there, they will add a full-sphere OLS as on f-35, and he will be able to fight.
    Missile maneuver, like a fighter, will be difficult for him to perform, to put it mildly, it will load, they will add a reb for this, the place allows

      + It’s quite realistic to carry a large ammunition load and throw missiles at the enemy, something like F-15X with a bunch of in-in missiles and at the same time F-22 with invisibility.

      + a powerful radar, if they don’t deliver something ready, then the area of ​​its canvas can be huge compared to fighter radars, and this is energy and electronic warfare

      + separately powerful electronic warfare

      + If lasers are going to put lasers on fighters, helicopters, transporters and UAVs, then God himself ordered such an advanced plane. Even if they don’t immediately deliver, at the time of release, they will constructively lay the possibility of an upgrade, and this is the possibility of intercepting missiles in and out of the enemy.

      + missiles such as CUDA.

      So hit him. No, well, judging by the number of caps in the subject, the B-21 will be shot down at the production stage.

      .

      This is a common mistake.
      Missile defense, as a fighter, it will be difficult for him to perform

      why are you even discussing this topic? It seems always reasoned reasoned. The task of protecting the bombers lies with the escort. Self-defense for heavy and low-maneuverable aircraft of 50-60 tons is a nonsense that you still have to look for. Whatever you arm it, without escorting the bomber after detection, it will be shot down with a very high probability. This is an objective fact.

        These are strategists, no fighter will have enough combat radius support.
        So they put protection on them, which they can. Previously, they just set advanced advanced and traps, now suitable rockets have appeared.
        Of course, they will not conduct air battles with enemy fighters, this is unrealistic.
        Rockets set for self-defense and nothing more.
        Moreover, modern melee missiles allow large overloads and can very well be used against distant dawns. Recently, the appearance of a thick missile in the s-400 was actively discussed, long-range missiles of the Mig-31 have long-range missiles, and both of these modern missiles such as Where are quite capable of intercepting.
        You just need to add a suitable control and aiming system. The radar on the V-2 is very advanced, I think it will be no worse on the V-21, they will add the radar as on the f-35-ready self-defense system.
        No one will give guarantees, of course, but life will make life difficult for fighters.

          These are strategists, no fighter will have enough combat radius support.
          So they put protection on them, which they can.

          firstly, the task of strategists to go to the frontiers of launches and shoot ammunition. There are two tricks for this: stealth and / or speed. Secondly, a large target will allow it to be identified and captured long before the attacking interceptor itself enters the zone of the bomber’s weapon control system. Thirdly, of course, no one canceled the passive and active opposition to the attack by the bomber. But counting on the effectiveness of these measures is quite difficult.

    Well, I don’t know what they will get out of this. The likelihood of maneuvering is excluded. Use long-range missiles, but launching a rocket, he himself was lit. The fighter maneuverability and response speed are an order of magnitude higher. Moreover, a reduced bomb load.

All-round explosive rocket, all-round visibility in infrared and radar - all that is needed. It is already now. And any fighter will have a hard time, no longer before the battle, when a pair of missiles flies at you. Here you yourself would dodge them, not like attacking a toothy bomber.

        There are two rows of gas rudders working sideways.
        The main engine is muted
        gas rudders rotate it 180 degrees.
        Then it accelerates again
        up to full speed marching engine.
        This is usually done immediately after separation from the aircraft, but you can
        and in flight.

          If the engine is muffled, this is certainly a plus, but it still loses energy, after all, it is not dumped from a standing plane. As I understand it, there are no tablets with the range of the rocket depending on the angle of its rotation yet?

            So tablets with the usual range of missiles are very
            approximate. For explosive rockets they mean how much
            minutes able to work the marching engine.
            From here, the average speed is calculated range.
            Therefore, combat use is usually half of the maximum
            range. Until now, in combat conditions only
            short-range (up to 15 km) and medium-range (up to 60 km) missiles.
            Moreover, medium-range launched no more than 30 km.
            Long-range explosive missiles have never been put into practice.

    The B-21 will have new methods of self-defense and will be able to use air-to-air missiles
    less than 60 years have passed. Such antimissiles were to be seriously included in the self-defense means of the supersonic strategist "Valkyrie", for defense against fighters and missiles. The plane died, the missiles also died. And the idea was very interesting, and no less interesting - the antimissiles themselves. In the form of a "flying saucer"

        look at the Pye Wetket project. Super-maneuverable melee missiles. The project included the Valkyrie BC for defense against enemy fighters and SAM

        Technically, everything was possible.

        The missiles turned out to be too complicated, the studies dragged on, and soon the Valkyrie bomber was completely abandoned. There was no place for missiles either, short-sighted, but good for us.

    An old topic - it has long been suggested that a bomber be loaded with long-range missiles - he will drag them more away - here you have the interceptor.
    It didn’t take off because the bomber is shining more than any other fighter, plus in passive mode it will not see anything - but in active mode - what if it’s stealth if it has a radar around it like a waving light?

        Wouldn't it be necessary now? Or did you decide that the shtatovites will hang AFAR canvases around the entire perimeter of the aircraft? As before, the new bomber will have a forward-downward "field of view", and "see something" in all other azimuths and angles. And as before, fighters will enter the bomber from an inconvenient azimuth, somehow, from behind, from below, from the side, where this "stealth" will shine like a Christmas tree and blind like a mole.
        The radar field of an airplane cannot be spherical.
        And the fact that a rocket in theory can fly back after a start does not cancel the fact that a couple of rockets from a fighter will fly to the bomb during its turn.

        But the idea is really not new.

    The idea itself is not bad. Every bomber will pull more than a fighter. This also applies to means of detection and armament, also the range is longer and the time of barrage. Perhaps they will try to launch it from the aircraft carrier, apparently it was not in vain that they reduced the size and switched to an electromagnetic catapult. A dozen of these bombers can replace the entire wing.

      will not be able to. The proposed option is for self-defense, and not as an interceptor. In order for the bomber to play the role of an interceptor, it has only cons in its assets. But he can defend himself, moreover, nowadays, not only passively (with the help of electronic warfare), but also actively - by launching short-range missiles that can bring down enemy missiles, or even the fighter himself, if the pilot cuts open and goes on the attack with using a gun or ur explosive melee.

      And this is a multiple increase in the bomber's chances of survival.

        The term interceptor means that someone will have to chase someone. A bomb with explosives does not need to do this. It is enough for him to be in the area of ​​the possible appearance of enemy aircraft, to be on alert cover. While his other brothers are working on the ground.

    There is little stealth, there are few jamming stations and false targets, you give them "in-in" missiles.
    Where are the lasers?

      in work. But combat lasers have more minuses than pluses, at least when acting in the atmosphere of the Earth

    The new bomber is designed according to the "flying wing" scheme, it will be stealthy and subsonic. Most likely, to reduce the cost of the design, the combat radius and the number of weapons on board will be reduced. The cost of one B-21 is expected to be around $ 500 million.

    Shaw for nonsense? combat radius and amount of weapons will be reduced We will reduce the number of weapons, and air-to-air missiles will appear. Or missiles are not bombs, you can hang them as much as you want. Sowing for 500 lyam in the USA - I do not believe it!
    Replace all indoor vehicles of this class in service: B-1B, B-2 and B-52H aircraft.
    and he will be open? feel

      I don’t believe in it either. For the rest, it’s quite for myself.

      and you finished this on your own? Where is this in the article? Although it does not shine, in every sense, but found nothing similar.

        I did not find anything similar.
        how to help? I hope you can read. Then eye drops: Vitabac or Tobrex should help. Although there may still be scattered attention, here I am .......

    $ 500 million - to put it mildly, too optimistic.
    As a stealth fighter, it is untenable, and as a platform for explosive missiles, it is too expensive.
    I admit a couple of BB databases for self-defense in separate compartments (just do not push them into dimensions anymore), but no more. Not that concept, absolutely.

      mine, a hundred times said, and the article says - not a missile platform for weapons of class B-B, but a strategist who can defend himself with melee missiles. Is it really incomprehensible?

      Of course, you have a completely different concept. There are a lot of melee missiles in the bomber; in terms of functionality, they are something like KAZ milking armored vehicles. so clear?

        Take the dimensions of the sidewinder or ASRAAM in relation to the expected performance characteristics of the B-21 and "be assured". In order for him to get hold of a more or less sane defense potential, he will need to fill the bomb bay with these missiles to the eyeballs or use external pylons, which, as we understand it, is futile. Therefore, 2 sidewinders (to shoot yourself) and no more. And to the question of misunderstanding, KAZ actually works practically near armor, so your comparison, to put it mildly, is unsuccessful and unconvincing.
